Birthday Party


My sister Kathryn had a birthday last week and to celebrate, her husband and one of her friends planned a surprise party for her.

I was in charge of table decorations for the party. Kathryn loves gardening and cottage living so I chose a sort of cottage garden theme.

I planted white begonias in pint mason jars and then tied each jar with a little ribbon. The store was all out of geraniums which were my first choice but the begonias were pretty too. For the cake table, I grabbed my galvanized watering can, a cute dry erase board I got from Blessings Unlimited last year and some of my vintage tablecloths. I also made a simple red and aqua pennant garland which I failed to get a picture of!

For the other tables, I used cloth napkins, the flower jars and some Scrabble words to spell out some party related words.

The party was outdoors at a local park so these simple decorations worked really well and I thought they turned out really cute!
