I have been keeping a little secret that I would have loved to share , I held a shower for my mother for her upcoming wedding , to a very kind and sweet man.

It has been a lot of fun for me , I wish I could have an outlet like this more often. I had a wonderful helper with the invitation, you know who you are, and thank you so much, they were a big hit and very fun to make.

The theme was pink of course, I borrowed many things from around the house that worked with my theme, like covering the couch with a pink blanket and pillows from Sophie's room, as well for the dining room I used a blanket, the most fun and festive are the Chinese lantern's two for $1.00 so I cleared the store , I love the feeling they give, so fun, we will reuse them for the dining tents at the wedding as well, that green huh!

It was a complete surprise and for the bride to be my mom , her first shower ,I am so glad I held one for my deserving mom, the lingerie was from classy racy , really , to hospital chic.

Now I rest.

How fun and festive. I love the hanging laterns.

I love to throw parties so I know what you mean about having an outlet for entertaining. I think smaller home shindigs are a lot more fun and let your creative mind go.

You weren't kidding when you said you had high ceilings! How do you get up there?

10 foot ladder, I can only use it in that one room but it will come in handy , for dusting , window cleaning, painting and drapery hanging, and now lantern hanging , but only in that one room.

You pulled off a very classy, pretty party. Your mum must have been thrilled!

To answer your question about the wallpaper for windows, I think you can find it at Home Depot. If not, try the actual website:

Talk soon,
