Another Shower for Colleen Victoria!!!

One of Tracy's friends hosted another shower at her house on Sunday and it was WONDERFUL. The food, the gifts, the company; everything. BEST of all was that Colleen was there for awhile!!! She looked SO adorable. Here are a few shots from the shower: Colleen was curious about everything she saw:)
She likes to carry her singlasses, mostly:)
 The green thing is a napkin, she likes to wipe her face off and then "clean":)
 My dollbaby!
 Mommy and Colleen
 The FOOD!


 French toast casserole and monkey bread...OMG!
 Colleen and Daddy when they were leaving:)Good luck with the nap, Daddy. That straw has sugar in it;):)
 Gifts!
 She is going to be the best dressed little girl!

~~~ A Late Summer Table~~~

I do love this month of August, as it leads to my favorite time, FALL!!! It is also my birthday month but now I don't want to admit how old I am getting! Geesh! But I wanted to create a new table for us to transition from Summer to Fall and what says that to me is sunflowers!!!!! It started when I found this plate at Home Goods for $4.99!!! I knew just how I was going to use it, and I have several places where it will land:) I just love the colors and design!
 Then I found these placemats at Joann Fabric for 40% off!  They are reversible too!
 I used a green runner to bring out the green of the sunflower.
 And my green handled flatware. I also got this towel at Joann and will use it in the kitchen when I decorate for Fall....SOON!
 I have had these coasters for awhile too.
 I love the texture of these glass covers. I also love that they come off to wash the glasses.
 I am using these white lanterns with a yellow candle inside.
 We have sunflower bowls for cereal or fruit. And the sunflower napkin ring gathers a brown and a yellow napkin.
 The stack is very simple. The white dinner plate's edge reminds me of a vine. Then a sunflower plate and the bowl.

 This was before I went to the grocery to get.... the sunflowers.

 I also have these napkin rings that look cute in the bowls.


 AHHH, I love sunflowers. I cut these short to fit into my favorite vase.





 I also cut a few of my limelight hydrangeas for our bud vases.



Even the backof the plate is painted. LOVE!

 Thanks for your visit!!! I am partying here:
