Patriotic Porch at the Little Bee House

Welcome to the Little Bee House
where we are decorated for the 
Fourth celebrations.
I kept it pretty low key this summer
using items I already had and purchasing
new mini flags for the flower urns.
 The black wicker rocking chairs and table
got a coat of fresh paint and are looking 
patriotically spiffy!
I added flag pillow covers
found here on Amazon.
And a faux geranium plant found
at QVC last year, but is on clearance now
at this link.
 The table and urns also got 
a fresh coat of paint.
We are using all white and green
in the landscaping this year
so I went with ferns and topiaries 
on & around the porch table.
 In the urns we planted begonias, marigolds
and red geraniums.
Along with flowers a few flag
found here on Amazon.
I hope you are enjoying outdoors
this summer and a taste of Patriotic!

Summer Pool Party!

Welcome and thanks for stopping by!
Today I am sharing the setup I did for 
a Girls Night Swim I hosted, but this would be a great
setup for any pool theme party this summer.
We used all paper here to cut down
on the clean up and the end of the evening
as it was a week night.
 I used plastic glasses from Target so the girls
could take them out to the pool.
Flip flop theme paper napkins, green paper dinner plates
stir sticks from Oriental Trading add fun!

Sunglass picks were super fun for fruit and cheese
selections from the blue and white tray.
 Along with multi colored spreaders
setup on blue and white plates
where I placed an assortment
of sandwich spreads from our
local Pauls Deli.
 For fun I added flip flop keychains
to match the paper napkins
as take home favors for the girls.
 I also added these beach ball picks to match
I scattered around the table, both
are from Oriental Trading.

 After working a full day
I made it easy for myself by getting
pre cut fruit for the fruit tray from Pauls Deli.
 And fresh baked buns for the sandwiches 
from the bakery.
 Here is a 'high" shot of the buffet table
in the kitchen. I setup everything the night
before so after work the night of the party all I had to do
was plate the food and enjoy!

My florist did a beautiful job of 
creating a tropical theme arrangement
for the centerpiece.
