Whimsical Orange & Aqua

Having fun with color in our Breakfast room.

Gotta love the  pops of color!

A fun blue mask creates some fun and whimsy to the table.

Love the gladiolas.  They are so lovely and they come in different colors.  You cannot go wrong with these beauties and also very reasonable.

This beautiful cake stand was given to me from my friend Karen and the ladies at the church for helping out with the decor.

As many  of you know, I have been very busy.  I am still tweaking blogs.  I gave Jemma, from At Home With Jemma a new template.  It went live today.  It is responsive, professional and has a clean look!

I designed a new header to go with the template.

Liz's garden blog, Sit With Me  In My Garden also got a new template. and new look.
She shares  photos of her lovely garden.  She has the sweetest fairy garden. Be sure to  stop in and have a look!

The baby shower is this weekend for my Granddaughter.  The theme is baby Jungle Animals.
I made a diaper cake.  I just have to add the ribbons.  I also made labels for the party favor, which is sugar scrub.  There are also water bottle labels in the jungle theme.
I will be bringing the food.  Caesar salad wraps, sweet and sour meatballs and pulled pork on mini buns.

The water bottle labels are from Print It Baby

I want to clarify, I am not taking off the summer.  That was Heather, one of our hosts for the  Dishing It & Digging It Link Party.  Her husband retired and she wants to spend more time with him.
People got confused when they read that, thinking it was me.  Every week, the link party has a different host.  Each host writes what they are up to and chooses the features for that week.

    I've seen a picture or two from the shower and they are amazing! I gave a baby shower a few months ago and enjoyed every second of it. It's so much for to lavish some love and attention on a younger generation.
