A Lot of Catching Up to Do!

I threw a gender-reveal party for a special couple last week. I had a riot setting up the decorations - anything for babies requires going overboard, anyway!
The garden shed.
Candy table.
Visit your local bulk store to find candy in every imaginable colour! I was lucky to find so much in pink and blue.
Making poms can be addictive. Bypass the party store and make your own.
Dramatic and cheap decor!
Learn to make your own tissue-paper poms and save lots of $$$.
The entry way.
I made special labels for the water bottles. Just crank out any old printshop-type program and you're all set. I ran these through my Xyron machine; that adhesive is great for this purpose - labels go on smoothly and stay on!
A banner is always a festive touch!

After the party, I went for a well-deserved rest at the cottage. My little knitting buddy joined me, but got in some quality time with her favorite pooch, Milo.
