FIVE FRIDAY FAVORITES


We've been traveling for the past two weeks (I've been sharing a lot from our trip on Instagram, but I'll share a few posts here as well when we return) and I bought these shoes for the trip.  I knew we'd be doing a lot of walking and they have been really comfortable!  They're a nice alternative to wearing tennis shoes every day.  They're the perfect nude color to go with everything and the leather is super soft.  I've worn them each time without socks- they don't rub at all and fit like a glove!  If you're in between or on the smaller side of your size, I'd probably size down 1/2 a size.

PARTY ALL THE TIME- SIMPLE 16th BIRTHDAY AND GRADUATION DECORATIONS


May was a month full of celebrations for us... it seemed as if we were hosting a different party or gathering every time we turned around!  Among them we had two big family milestones, and today I'm sharing some of the decorations around our house from my daughter's 16th Birthday and son's High School Graduation.  They aren't outrageous or over the top, just simple touches here and there to celebrate each occasion.

I was pleasantly surprised when my girl requested a backyard party at home with her friends to celebrate her birthday.  Alright, I can do that!  I had grand plans worked up in my head of epic decorations in the trees and scattered around the patio and yard. And, of course, it poured buckets of rain the entire day of her party right up until the time that the party started.  I was thankful that it cleared off and the kids could be outside a bit during the actual party time but any grand plans for decorating outdoors were thwarted.

So, we used what we had to make the house festive.  I generally just focus on a few areas for parties... the mantel, tables, maybe the porch or entry and maybe a bit in the kitchen.  We didn't really have a theme for her party, just bright, cheery, and colorful.  I have a variety of balloons that we inflated and then grouped in clusters to hang at the ends of banners and garlands.  I made the tissue garland years ago and the "Let's Party" came from Five Below several months ago.  Dollar Tree carries 14" number and letter silver or gold mylar balloons now, so I got a few sets of those to use.

SPRING OR SUMMER BANQUET TABLE CENTERPIECE DECORATIONS


A few times this year I'm decorating tables for a board meeting luncheon for our state's group of churches.  My goal has been to make it nice, but as always to use a lot of what I have or can borrow, and decorate on a budget.  Today's post is short and sweet and I debated sharing this with you since it's so simple- nothing overblown or over the top- but really that's the point of why I write this blog!  I want to share simple, affordable, achievable ideas especially for church or event decorations since I've found inspiration for those events lacking on the internet.  So, here you go!
