7 Year Old Camp Out

Sorry we have been a bit MIA on the blog. We have been busy preparing for Sophia's 7th birthday. This year she asked for a roof camp out. We did our best, but with a turn in very cold weather we decided to create a campout in our living room.  


We had so much fun! So much fun I wasn't overly busy taking too many pictures. A friend snapped plenty of pics, so when I have my hands on those, I will be sure to share.

Fall Dinner Party

Last week the Rev. and I hosted a supper for 24.  This time around I knew I would be cooking, so I planned ahead. My first step was to looking into my fabric closet and select some textiles that would work with our table scape. I found some vintage mauve velvet fabric. I knew this would be our centerpiece for color composition. So, selected a grouping of flowers in the pink familia.  



I then pulled out the napkins and china. I found everything I needed expect for uniform bowls. This is when I headed over to Fish Eddy's.  I found perfect bowls in the clearance section. I felt so lucky to find the perfect bowl at 2.00 a piece. I hit the jack pot!


Alll in all we had a wonderful time and I loved the way the colors all came together. 

Besos,

Fall Birthday Ideas

Well, the time has arrived and Miss. S will be turning 7 next week. I am in total shock!!!!! Whether I am in or out of denial, a party is to be had.  Every summer I order Sophia's birthday invitations in August. We decide on the theme and go with it. This year, we will host a roof-top camp out. With warm weather in NYC these last few days I am hopeful that the party will go on. 


Here a few details……….




I also may have purchased a 20 person tee-pee tent from Walmart. 

To be revealed……..


Besos,

Mel
