Great Day for a Garden Party...Birthday

We held on to summer here for 1 more weekend.

My littlest charmer has a late August birthday and she wanted a "Garden Party".  Since the end of summer fills up with last minute getaways and end of summer projects we decided to wait until after school started.

The girls had fun decorating party hats...

I found a couple of tutorials on Pinterest...check them out HERE and HERE.  And of course "tweaked" them a bit to fit our style/party theme.

They ate "buggy" food... of "flower-like" place settings.

Even the utensils came in a little bouquets :)

And of course a little "dirt" pudding for dessert.

Not much "junk" at this party...but I did use layers of vintage tablecloths.  Also, blue jars and rubber boots for vases.

Even a few butterflies flying in the chandelier.

And of course the "parting gifts" buckets.

 I think a good time was had by all :)

Sorry, I didn't feel I should post pictures of their lovely little you get the "buggy" faces...also quite cute :)

OK, now on to FAVORITE!

PS...Thanks so very much for your sweet thoughts and prayers for my dad.  He is STILL in the hospital and we continue to  pray for comfort and healing as well as strength and patience for my mom.

Thanks for your patience with me here.  I know my posts lately have been random and few.  I hope to be back to creating soon!!

  5. What a cute party. Those little hats are cracking me up! And about not posting as often as you'd wish - you have so much eye candy to look at in all your past posts, that I'm satisfied just coming here to lurk around :) Hope your Dad is feeling better every day.
