I just hosted my very first Mother’s Day luncheon! I chose a Tea Party theme because when else can you go hog wild with all things pink and dainty?! Plus, you can only have so many pretend tea parties with plastic, albeit darling, teacups and asking Elmo if he’d like a refill for the 20th time…”MOM! You’re not asking him the right way!!” Anyways, you can imagine my excitement at the thought of using actual glassware and enjoying adult conversation with 3 of my favorite ladies in the whole world!
I hosted Easter Dinner this year for my family. It’s the first time in years that all my siblings have been together for Easter! It’s amazing how you can go so long without seeing them and yet just pick up right where you left off. Good natured teasing included! My entire color palette inspiration came from a plate set my mom just gave me. It’s this bright and happy pattern with blue, yellow and sage green all anchored by a cream background. I really had the majority of things already from my house but all spread out through my house. Bringing them together was tied nicely by the bright yellow flowers I bought to later plant in the flowerbeds out front!
It’s been a while since I hosted a craft night and with Easter coming up there are SO many cute crafts floating around it was definitely time. So I invited some of my favorite ladies, including my 2.5 daughter since we must start craftiness early, and threw a mini craft night!
A tiny bit late getting this up but Dr Seuss’s birthday is one of my favorite days! I love all his books so much. As a baby shower gift my mom got me almost the entire collect as board books so they’ve been read often with my 2.5. I was trying to decide which book to base this year’s little birthday celebration when I saw the Horton Hears a Who movie on TV. My daughter LOVED it, we watched it twice…in a row…so I knew that our theme had been found.
