So what should I start with? I'll share my birthday celebration. (pardon the pictures, I do not have a fancy camera and it was dusk) We celebrated on a Friday evening, a work day, and as I was driving home I started thinking about how I could make it look festive. So, I grabbed a quilt off a shelf in the living room, found dishes, glassware, napkins, and flatware. Then I called my mom to pick up some plain altar candles at the grocery store. Next, I put another quilt on a serving table, wrote the menu on an old cupboard door I painted with chalkboard paint, and pulled out a few other items I already had. The only new items were the candles and they only cost about $4.00 for 3 of them. It was just a small party, but it felt festive, the food was delicious, and we all had a lovely time.
I hope you enjoy my first post. I'll be sharing more as I get ready for the county fair. My More Creative Friend and I have created a table setting or two and created Christmas tree decorations for the fair home ec building and we have to be ready by next Saturday.
Thanks for stopping by!
