Our Home ... Celebration Week!

Happy to announce we made it through a week's worth of celebrating ... family and friends in town to visit and share in the excitement of Callie's graduation!!

Last week I shared a piece of my backyard and announced I had two days to get this looking pretty.  Two days? I was asked several times.  Yes, two days.  My own timeline because I knew the rain was coming and I just wanted the area to look a little prettier. The lower patio was where I wanted Callie and her friends to be able to have their own party within the party!

A few flowers and plants for pots I already had ... and a quilt for my hammock ...


I have used the kids' graduations as an excuse to spruce up and splurge on a couple of items ... I bought four of these huge lanterns from PB 3 years ago for Erin's party.  I have used the hell out of them!!


This year I had electricity run down to the patio ... you can see the lights wrapped around the trees holding the hammock.  They look so pretty at night!  

You will notice another reason I don't have Charlotte's backyard ... there is a trampoline back there (do you spy the legs in the photo above?) and it has to stay for a while longer!!



A view from our deck ... things set up for Callie and her friends ... 




That is Don's bamboo shooting up in the background ... he is on a mission to create a Bamboo wall.  It has been a slow process, we don't think there is quite enough sunshine back there, but it is coming along!

Later this week I'll bring you the "Adult" party and my Splurge on the Upper Deck!!

Making the world more Beautiful.  One Room at a time!
