I am finally in Florida ready to decorate the home here. I was too excited that I could hardly sleep at night. I would go to bed around 2 AM and then wake up by 3:30 AM and start working on opening boxes and organizing again.
Anyway, I thought I would find some time and enjoy my morning coffee and this is my favorite spot in the house to have it.
Last Monday, we decided to throw a birthday party for 2 grandkids born March 20 and April 4 respectively. Holden likes construction stuff and Zoe likes ladybugs so I bought some John Deere hats and ladybug cupcake picks. I found some tractor chocolate candy pops from Ebay for party favors.
On our way here, John and I passed by a sidewalk vendor selling orchids and I bought this bright yellow cattleya.
The grandkids all played together well and had a great time.
My daughter Tina had many activities for the kids and one was painting. Reese had fun painting but did it on herself, lol. Good thing the paint was water washable.
The celebrants blowing the cake with tractors and ladybugs. Publix did a really good job making it.
AJ, our oldest granddaughter is growing way too fast.
The next day, I cooked dinner and invited my daughter and son in law who live next door.
I had brought my Old Britain Castles set to use here.
I did not even have matching napkins to use so this was the best I could do but I brought my ceramic bunny napkin rings from home in Mississippi.
I used postal napkins. John likes this postal stuff so you will see a lot I am using for decorating this house. I will show our family room for Metamorphosis Monday. It is finally done.
I am making progress in opening the boxes. I have a few more to go but the boxes below are already empty.
Thanks so much for stopping by. I am trying to get this post done to catch up in linking it with the following memes. Thanks to the hostesses, really, really appreciate you all!
