Hello and Happy Sunday! If you have popped over from U-Create, welcome! Kari was very gracious to feature me on her blog today--I have received many new visitors who have come through her blog and I really must say W.E.L.C.O.M.E.!!!!
So here is a little update on some of the ongoing preparations for my daughter Ella's upcoming Lemonade and Sunshine Birthday Social. First, the party is this Sunday--ONE WEEK AWAY! If you look back at this post about it, you will see some of the inspiration that I pulled from around the web for the party.
Initially I was very excited about photos 2 and 3, but I don't think my newly two-year old will actually keep a flower crown on her head, and I have decided not to use my old Mason and Atlas jars for lemonade as I remembered that I have a huge glass container with a spot that I am going to fill instead. I haven't decided yet what kind of cups or glasses to use--but my Dad is bringing me some of my Mom's vintage jelly jars--so that may work.
I have decided to fill the jars with wildflowers for the tables.
I don't have enough, so I have started soaking labels off of jars from things from the back of the fridge. I plan to have about 20 jars filled with flowers. I am also going to wrap the necks of the jars with leftover fabric from my Scrappy Fabric Banner.
Oh! And I am happy to share a sneaky peeky (a term my Bloggy friend Kim over at Small Words likes to use) to show you this item I picked up at a local antique shop. I needed a really large tablecloth and found this beauty!
Oh, and that blue piece with the sunflowers? Awww . . . I can't give away all of my tricks in the first week!
AND--you know how I mentioned Kim over at Small Words? Well she just finished a BEAUTIFUL custom-painting for Ella that I will talk about tomorrow!
Stay tuned . . .
