Bridal Shower – Vintage Garden Party

On March 21,2015 we threw a bridal shower for our fabulous niece. The theme was vintage garden party. I think it was a success!

This was a game where she had to put a gumball in her mouth every time she got a question about her fiancĂ© wrong…

   

Some of the wonderful gifts she got:

Our Next Project…

This is an antique secretary/desk we got at Goodwill for $32.00. We really don’t have time to work on it right now, but this was just too good to pass up!

When we got it, it was falling apart. Matt had to basically put it back together.

We are going to paint it with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint and then put some of my mother’s pretty antique glassware in it.

I am already in LOVE with this piece!

Halloween 2014

So this year’s theme was Phycho Circus! The neighbors joined in and we all had so much fun! We estimate there were approximately 750 people who came through our display this year! I love when halloween is on a weekend!

Next year the theme is going to be The Assylum. The day after halloween we went to The Spirit Store and got some great deals for it!

Please let me know if you have any ideas for us to incorporate into next year’s display!

Re-done Goodwill table

This is a Goodwill table.  I love the style and it is a very sturdy, well-built piece of furniture.  My friend had been looking for a table like this for a while. When I found it at Goodwill I was so excited I practically threw myself on top of it while waiting for an employee to help me!

Here is what it looks like now (I also love the chairs she got from overstock.com):
