I love sunflowers. When I was a little girl every year my dad and I would plant them together and watch them grow. They are beautiful and I love mixing them with other bright fun colors. I think they will be perfect for my table this weekend.
Here is a sneak peak at what I am thinking…I picked up the below fabric a week or so ago and this past weekend I sewed them into dual table runners.
This is what I mean by the unexpected way for table runners….this is from my first pop up party a couple years ago see the post here.…
see? I like table runners the wide way not the length of the table. Anyway back to flowers…
I think something like these options would bring out all the fun bright colors of the table and be so pretty! Stay tuned next week to see how it all turns out!
Chris and I have been building out our gallery wall for a couple weeks and I have to say it is looking good. We just ordered a moose head to add to it and I think it will help it look fun. We bought it on Etsy from THIS vendor.
I have seen it on pinterest a couple times but this weekend I think I am going to try it out. Taking mini plastic animal toys, painting them and using them to adorn your table. I picked up flamingos and I think I will try and paint them gold. I will let you know how it turns out. The first one I saw (literally 2 years ago) was the white pig one. It seems so sophisicated and all it takes is a coat of paint!
Although I have already thrown 2 showers this year, see them here and here. I have one more and I hope to be done! My sister in law is expecting so we have a baby shower this time to throw. My mother in law is throwing it this time but I am in charge of the favors. I am obsessed with these little clear boxes. Such a cute treat to bring home! I really like the one with the animal crackers for a baby shower. What do you think?
I just can never get enough spoonflower. Lately I have been loving all the prints from Sparrowsong. The gold fabrics especailly intrigue me. I am curious how good the printing is to make it look metallic. I might have to order a sample just to see.
I love summer picnics and my goal this summer was to take more advantage of them since we live in a condo and don’t have our own outdoor space. I was really excited to get some new picnic gear for my birthday, I posted about my inspiration here. I also pulled out the table coverlet I sewed from our Christmas dinner you can see here. I think it was a perfect drop cloth for our picnic!
We brought our mini weber grill and grilled steaks and vegtables in tin foil. It was a lovley evening!
