House parties are one of my favorite gatherings to plan. I have a tendency to go overboard when they are at my house...painting rooms, moving furniture and spending entirely too much time with a bottle of Windex!
As for JP's party, I believe everyone is expecting a typical house party, but I don't want that. I am envisioning more. I would love to see lanterns leading up to the front door with a grand entrance and cool centerpieces. I would like there to be details that she enjoys!!
I found this lantern at my favorite store, IKEA. They are only $4.99 and you could use them for a million different things. I like to keep things like this on hand. You never know when you will need lanterns.
Tom and I were just out watering our hydrangeas and he actually got the wild idea of hanging Chinese lanterns from the two oak trees in my front yard. The man could actually be on to something. I have an obsession with trees...too long to explain...maybe we will discuss trees in another blog. Anyway, this got me thinking. What if I hung lanterns from the trees?
All I could think about today was Jennifer's party. I want it to be perfect, so I stopped by Hot House Design to get some decorating ideas. I was so excited to find a grapevine ball wrapped in flowers (see my last blog)!! I am going to try and find a place for a gv ball Saturday night! I don't know why, but I just love these fun little "balls!"
