A Rose is a Rose is a Rose

I'm not sure why I love roses so much, but everytime I see a pretty teacup with Roses on it, I want to take it home.

I hope you will grab your favorite Tea Cup and enjoy something warm today.

Transforming our Family Room into an intimate dining area took a little bit of creative thinking and work.

Our Family room and kitchen dining area normally look like this -

We hosted a Rehearsal Dinner in our home for about 30 people.  So the transformation happened like this -

Removal of sofa, rugs, tables and chairs

set up 8 foot tables and folding chairs

My daughter worked her magic with decorating the tables.

The coffee station proved to be very popular on a cold night.

The heart shaped napkin tutorial was found HERE.  Perfect for Valentine's Day, Anniversary or Wedding party.

 Candles are lit, we are just waiting for the guests to arrive.

 Buffet provided by Holy Hog Bar-B-Que.

It turned out to be a delightful evening.

Sunday Morning

"The blessing and protection of Heaven are at all times necessary but especially so in times of public distress and danger. The General hopes and trusts that every officer and man will endeavor to live and act as becomes a Christian soldier, defending the dearest rights and liberties of his country."

Outdoor Tea

It's been a beautiful day today.  With temps reaching in the mid 70's, it was a perfect day to take my tea outside.
