More Spa Water

Another cup of refreshing summer spa water.  In a pitcher, I added sliced lemon, a couple strawberries and mint.  Pretty and tasty.

Artichoke Chicken Dinner

Dress up your chicken breast with tapenade.  Last night's dinner was sauteed asparagus drizzled with lemon juice and chicken breast topped with artichoke tapenade with roasted garlic.  I had picked this up in at Viansa Winery in Sonoma a couple weeks ago.  So healthy and bursting with flavor.

Baby Shower Details

Here are the details for the baby shower I helped plan.  We hung tissue paper pom poms from the second floor.

The party was at my friend's mother in law's house.  She ordered tables, chairs, table cloths and centerpieces.

Here's some of the dot garland I made.

I also strung the white canvas bunting on the mirror in the background.

Mother in law made these cute little said boats.

I couldn't get my flash to can't really see how pretty the table was.  More pom poms, garland, and bunting.

Star and anchor necklaces were the favors for the attendees.

I totally forgot to take a picture of the mimosa bar and the fruit pizza bar!  Every one left completely stuffed!

Refreshing "Spa" Water

For a refreshing glass of "spa" water, simply add a few slices of cucumber & lemon and toss in a few mint leaves.  Let it steep in the refrigerator for 30 mins and enjoy!

Felt Dot Garland

It has been soooo long since I've done any crafting.  We've been so busy with work, kids, family and friends, I can't hardly find time to even work out!  I am co-hosting a baby shower for one of my girlfriends this weekend.  I made some multi colored felt dot garlands for her in addition to paper pom poms and a bunting. 
I used 5 shades of blue and white felt and cut them down to 1 inch circles.

Then I fed them through the sewing machine rotating colors.  I chose to leave some space between each dot, which I like a lot more than having them touching (like the ones I made for before)

Here's what they look like hanging on my office door.

Ideally, these would be hanging from ceiling.  So I took a picture from the bottom up to get a sense of what it might look like at the party.  I love it!
