Scenes From Our Weekend

Nov 20, 2017

This weekend we celebrated Frances Moon’s birthday.  She doesn’t actually turn 4 until the 25th but we celebrated early this year since we will be out of town for Thanksgiving.   Beware picture overload!

I love buying flowers and arranging them myself.  I think it would be so fun to be a florist.  I stocked up for the party.

We rented a jump castle for the party and the kids were just a little excited about it.

The food spread.  I am working on a post where I will share everything I made and other party food favorites.  I had several questions about my table runner I bought it awhile ago but found an identical one HERE

My flowers turned out pretty well if I do say so:)

Of course wine for the Mamas:)

Party favors for the kids.  When I saw unicorn ornaments at Target I knew they would be perfect party favors!

Ready for cake! We used Luckhaus Brubaker for the cake and not only did it look amazing but it was one of the best tasting cakes I have ever had!  I highly recommend them!

The sweetest almost 4 year old!

Friday night I went to a charity event and wore this leopard dress. It is metallic and so pretty in person.  It actually comes with a belt too but I opted to wear it loose.

My favorite metallic slippers are back in stock!  They were a gift last Christmas and I live in!

Sunday the kids and I went to lunch at Mex 1 and then the movies.

What eating queso with a 3 year old looks like- a hot mess.

I had the chicken rice bowl and Sterling had the breakfast bowl with tater tots.  Both were awesome.

Casual Sunday.  My tee shirt and poncho are under $20!

Sunday night we went to a really fun oyster roast at Tattooed Moose.

Face painting is always a good time.

Have a great Monday!

    I love the party theme! We celebrated our little man’s birthday this weekend, too. You did a fabulous job, Mama, and I’m sure you’re pooped! That cake is insanely gorgeous by the way!

    You should totally do a post on how to use grocery store flowers to create arrangements. PLEASE! I’m terrible at this! Where do you buy your flowers, and how do you know what to buy//what do you look for?
