I have more updates from the weekend’s yard work, but thought I’d give you guys a little of a breather and look at some pretty photos before getting back to the dirty mess that is my yard. My beautiful little sister is getting married, and despite the constant state of chaos that comes from a house that’s always in the middle of renovation, I decided to celebrate by throwing her a shower.

Here are just a few shots from her fun-filled day (with my work-in-progress in the background):

Of course, I had to put a little DIY in there, like these yellow and silver tissue paper pom-poms. Martha Stewart’s site has a simple and easy tutorial if you want to make your own!

The flower vases were filled with these little gel balls that kept the flowers fresh without water. They came from the dollar store and added a little more sunlight into the room.
And, speaking of flowers…

The tables were themed to match the bride-to-be’s wedding colors…

And plenty of food (way more than enough) was left out for the guests…

But, as all parties do, it had to come to an end eventually. I liked the decorations though, so I left the pom-poms up over the weekend.

  4. Congratulations on having enough sense to know a bride is more important than a not quite- but already lovely renovation. Just got back from my son's wedding cruise. Yellow must be this season's IT color.
