May Flowers Table

All of our April Showers did bring May Flowers!  I could not help but use some on my table before I planted them outside.

 I had this beautiful April Cornell yellow and pink table cloth that I bought a while back, I kept thinking of it as I was roaming the nursery and choosing flowers. 
When I got them home, the table just fell in place.

Just a pretty mix of pink and yellow!

a little bit of baby's breath potted in peat pots for each place setting


I am glad my flowers took a day or two to rest on my table before going outside, because I am sad to report that since planting my flowers that a good portion of them became bunny food just after I planted them!
Sometimes I think it is unfortunate that my dog has taken such a liking to all the bunnies in our yard!

I hope you are able to stop and enjoy some of the flowers around you!

Cinco de Mayo - Fun and Color

Happy Cinco de Mayo!!
We are celebrating another holiday that we really have no place celebrating, but we are along for the fun!

I just love the colors!

As you can probably tell, I pulled every bright colored dish I had out of the cupboard and put it them on my hutch!  
I made the paper Mexican fiesta flag bunting on my Silhouette and just strung it up with some orange hemp twine.
Now don't get all excited about the fact that my paper flags are hanging directly over my candles, because if you notice - most of my candles are never actually lit!!  I think I have mentioned before that my dad was a fireman and strictly prohibited candles being burnt in our house growing up.  So as most dad's have instilled a certain kind of fear in us, I don't usually burn my candles.  
Nothing says Fiesta more than adding some rick rack to some plain napkins!  That is like a party in my napkin drawer!

So Ole!  Hoping you can put some color and fun into your days!
