Here is a little peak at how we spent part of our weekend. One of my daughter’s best friends turned six years old on Saturday. And they celebrated by building her (and her younger sister) a house up in the trees down by the creek on their property.
The mother of my daughter’s friend is also one of my best friends and I offered to help decorate the outdoor tables. I took some fall colored fabric from my huge stash and also collected some marigolds and zinnias for the flower arrangements.
I am eager to use my flowers as much as I can this week because I believe we will be having our first frost very soon! And that will be the end of my 20″x20″ zinnia and marigold garden that has been blessing my family with beautiful warm colors all summer long!
The amazing mother/wife/host of this party also made these cute Hershey kiss and mini vanilla wafer acorn treats and some real cool funky meringue mushrooms!
It was a ridiculously gorgeous day and Hannah had a blast running from playing in the treehouse to playing in the 80’s rv camper they have set up down by the creek!
My baby girl also had fun meeting a new friend!
We ate some delicious chili and check out the really cool pumpkin cake! It was a special request from the birthday girl. A red velvet cake shaped like a pumpkin that was made by her great grandmother!
I also managed to paint a handful of children’s faces.
It was a great day…unfortunately followed by a Sunday of nursing my daughter Hannah and holding her hair back while she got sick all day long from a stomach virus!
I hope your weekend was full of beauty, friendship and great health!
Oh and here is The Treehouse! (I was impressed by the fact that this was built in less than a week before the party!)
