January 20, 2014Retro Pink Pastel Summer Party And Some Summer Dreaming
Well, it’s here. The horrible time in Michigan between the fun winter holidays and the time when the snow finally melts. Notice that I didn’t say when spring is here, because in Michigan sometimes spring still means snow. So, to cheer myself up I am posting these pictures from a party we had for Alexandra this summer, which used a lot of pastel, some fun vintage tablecloths and lots of warm air and sunshine!
We keep it real here. Yes, that is a baby toy in the background.
Ugh! I just want to sit out here with a glass of lemonade!
Or a beer.
Here is the progress in our sunroom/tiki room. You can see that our large tiki mask was moved to the floor under the table, thanks to some mischievous kids!
And what would a party post be without an “after” shot? This is what my kitchen looked like after all my guests departed. Check out this mess! I love it.
And, of course, a cute baby. Or two. Here Alex is (so tiny!) rubbing noses with her cousin. They both had a great time!
So, I hope this post was a little breath of warm air for everyone who is huddled in their frozen house, like me. Did you guys have any epic parties this summer? Let’s reminisce!
