Baby Shower Bliss

Today I am popping in with a few highlights of my Daughter's baby shower. Yep, I am going to be a Zsa Zsa again. Yay! We haven't received the professional pictures from the shower yet, so all of the pictures were taken with a cell phone.
Once my daughter decided on a theme Bumble Bees/Daisies we went to work. Several weeks of prep work was done to make the baby shower possible. But in the end it was worth it. Enjoy the pics! 

Lots and lots of prep work was done before the room got to this point. Let's see, we painted the terracotta pots, made all the paper flowers as well as the place mats, just to name a few. Did I mention we made all the paper flowers? If you look to the left of the picture you will see my little sweet heart and my good friend Mandy. My grandbaby was super excited, because she was going to be our little Hostess for the day.

This is how the room looked before we put our special touch on it. That's me in the black/white fedora. And yes the expectant Mommy is just above me. I think she is the cutest. And her Hubby is way in back.
At this point the tables and chairs were basically in the right place. Now it was time to DECORATE!!!!!!
So the next step was to add the tablecloth, chair covers, sashes and centerpieces.

  If you look closely you will see a baby bumble bee sleeping. Shh!!! How cute is that?

A single Bumble Bee was placed in each of the larger daisies as well. Can you see it?


Once everything was said and done, this is how the table/tables turned out.

My Daughter and her Hubby's table received a fresh floral arrangement. Instead of the black sashes we used black white and yellow tulle to add another element to the design. Daughter and her Hubby loved their table.

This is a close-up of their table. Isn't the table runner absolutely gorgeous!!!!



As a thank you each guest received an amazing gourmet candle apple from Tiffiney@Lé Château Doux. The apples were not only gorgeous, but they were oh so tasty too! Thanks Tiffiney!!!

I had a blast last month helping put this event together. But before I end this post I just wanted to share the cake with you. It was purchased from Sam's Club, and we added the daises, bumble bees, and the sleeping baby bee. And after all was said and done, that's exactly what we did. We went to SLEEP!!!!!

My Fall Table

There are only nine days left until Thanksgiving. And I am so excited because I get to share it with close friends and family. By the way, the grand baby will be here too! Yay! Ok, back to the post.   My Fall Table turned out quite lovely if I must say so myself. This year instead of using a table cloth, I used a variety of fabric samples swatches to cover the table. So, what do you think? I love all the different colors patterns and textures, and they actually play off each other nicely. And I am hoping the fabric sample table cover will be a great conversation starter as well. I will let you know how it goes. Spode  China and pumpkins from the Dollar Tree who knew? Initially the table had two fall wreaths and two lanterns. You can see it here. But I had to remove one of each to make room for the table settings. You know how I love animal print. I think every room needs a little touch of it. How about you?             

Easy Last Minute Ideas For Fall

The count down has begun! Can you believe there are only 8 days left until the turkey is carved? So, today I figured I would share some easy last minute ideas to get you through Fall/Thanksgiving Holiday. So let's get started! These diy wreaths may look quite intimidating but on the contrary they aren't at all. To get this look you will need a grapevine wreath, garland of your choice, floral wire and ribbon. Simply take the garland and place it around the wreath. Once the garland is in place attach it to the wreath using floral wire. Next, add the bow and hang the wreath. Project complete! Your family and friends will be impressed. For best results make sure that the garland is long enough to cover the entire circumference of the wreath. If the wreath above is still a bit much, why not give this wreath a try? The only things needed are a grapevine wreath and ribbon of your choice. Now make a big bow and attach it to the wreath. Voila!  I used a pipe cleaner/chenille

How I decorated my Christmas Tree/Foyer for less than $30

 I am over the super excited to bring you one of several posts revealing how I decorated my Christmas Tree/Foyer for less than $30.Yes,you heard me right. And I must say it looks quite fabulous, but before the reveal can take place, we have to go through the process. Sorry!!! So, keep reading to find out how I transformed the space for so little. Each year I try to incorporate creative ways to decorate my home on an extremely tight budget, and this year was no exception. But in order to get the ball rolling on this project, I needed some inspiration. Well, my inspiration came via a promise I made to my grand baby. I promised her that Zsa Zsa(that's me) would decorate a Christmas tree she would love. However, with that being said, I also knew the design/decor had to be whimsical and playful enough for her. But it also had to appeal to the adults in the family as well. (mainly me) So, I put my design thinking cap on and came up with a plan, that I thought would appeal to both partie
