House warming party

Wow today has flown by. I woke up three hours late today eep! I was supposed to watch miss autumn at 5 today instead of the usual time. All the sudden I woke up and it was light outside I said to myself " WHY IS IT LIGHT OUTSIDE ITS NEVER LIGHT OUTSIDE WHEN I GO TO WORK!" I feel horrible I made my mom late for work because someone had to keep a eye on the little one. I must have been more tired then I thought Opps. But it's almost that time for my house warming parties. And I am not entirely ready. I had a goal of being all settled in I am almost there. I set out on a search for farm table and all that goes with it. But its been proven to be harder to find one, I came close but they were all tiny ones. I have big family dinners so I need a big table.

I still have a week till my house warming with friends to find one. I need something though five seats and about 13-26 people coming so as you can see I have a little problem haha. I also made a un realistic goal to find and finish setting up my studio. I tend to always want everything done and be perfect before people see it. I haven't had people over yet just because of that. But other then that the party will happen if I have all the furniture or not. I don't think my friends or family will care.

I wanted to share today some pictures that are inspiring me for decorations for the party.

cupcakes from my favorite cupcake bakery in Portland Saint cupcake.

some yummy champagne

I love their lemonade.

Mmm fondue LOVE it.

And since there will be cupcakes. There should be my favorite cupcake wine :) for those who don't like champagne.

In other news my sister has given this to me. It came with her house it was sadly left behind by the previous owner. I don't remember if it still works or not. If it doesn't I hope it isn't that hard to get working again because I just love it.

Tomorrow I will spend my day cleaning my house from top to bottom (which I love a good deep cleaning). Then running some errands to get ready for my first house warming with my family coming over for a good home cooked meal made by me. I am making a yummy chicken and dumplings and for desert chocolate creme pie.

Now I am all hungry thinking about it. I will post pictures of the festivities. Hope everyone is enjoying their Thursday again this week has flown by I don't know how that happened again.


P.S. I am working on a project for miss elsie's project restyle I cant wait to share it. Head over to her page to read all about it.

  1. so glad your getting there with the house, it crazy how long it take to get sorted isnt it!!
    Im that same when we moved in to our house i wanted it just so before people came over.
    cant wait to see you project restyle i have done one so far and another one is in progress.


  2. Yeah it's taking longer then I had hoped. It's a process with life and trying to find certain pieces. I have two project restyles that I have in mind. I need to get one last essential thing for my first re style. I cant wait to share. It's so much fun.

  3. I'm sure you're going to pull off the housewarming party just fine! Since it looks like you are well-planned on what you'll serve to the invited guests, but I hope you get to finish fixing the house before that day comes; to make sure that everyone will be at awed at what you've done.
