my little party











So as promised, I wanted to share some pictures from my little party last week. It was so much fun to decorate and have Kim and Adria over. And Payton was a guest of honor as well (believe me, I would have been in major trouble if she wasn't a main part of this party! hehe!!). Ikea is like, the one stop party shop. I got everything there...the table cloths, the placemats, the napkins, even the plates!! They were only 75 cents each! I think I need to go back and buy some more. I went with the pink and red theme (I told you, I'm diggin' the red lately) and I love how it turned out. The flowers were my favorite. It was just a girly and fun afternoon. We had chicken caesar salad, breadsticks, cheese dip....and then yummy strawberries and jello and whipped cream for dessert. We were very full after all was said and done! And then I gave all the girls a little lip gloss for fun. It was just so nice to plan a little something for my friends and have the chance to serve them. We always just go "out" to eat, and I loved the change in atmosphere and it meant that Adria got play with our kids, too. Oh, and I also wanted to mention...you can see how each person's name card is UNDER the plate...when I was setting the table I couldn't quite figure out how to prop the name cards up...and Gray was walking by and was like, "just put them underneath the plates"...and look how stinkin' cute it looks!! So that was totally Gray's idea and it ended up being my favorite thing about the table. Besides the flowers. (hehe) How awesome is my hubby for coming up with that creative little idea?? Love him. So...go and throw a little lunch party, everyone! I promise you'll enjoy it.

Sure beats the ichiban I had for lunch today! I enjoy seeing you take an ordinary event and make it something special. In my next life I'm going to be more like that. In this one...ichiban anyone?! haha
