This weekend was about family.
It was about celebrating and simply catching up.
And it involved cake and lots of nibbles and
just a few flowers...
and a whole lot of goofing off and laughter.
Such as water balloon fights. (more coming there)
Pranks, snapchat snippets
and a certain bicycle.
While I ran around the house on Saturday sweeping the floors
and spritzing linen spray,
I also created a few simple bouquets with some of those market blooms from last week
and scattered just a few of them around the house here and there
Like in the dining room.
and the bathroom of course.
And I also decided to create a simple, charming welcome for family out on the lawn.
With just a few balloons and blooms,
a pretty present and bicycle.
It was a simple sweet display that is so easy to put together.
It literally took me about 5 minutes.
But it definitely said 'Welcome' in a charming way.
Whether you have an old bike or a new one like this one
for a birthday party, grad party or even just a family get together-
a little display out in the driveway or by your entry is a perfect way to greet your guests and say hello.
And... a bonus?
Something like this becomes a great photo prop
for party goers as well.
I kind of got the feeling they were mocking that balloon bicycle set up...
But it was so funny...
I said mock away.
If you are busy with hostess duties,
you can simply set up a camera on a tripod with a timer
and let guests go to town having fun
And you will probably have a good time seeing what they came up with.
There is a reason I call these guys my 'goofballs'
Love them all so much.
Coming your way later this week,
a close up of the mantel dressed for the party
and a fun tour all about lighting up the night.
Hope your week is off to a great start
