New door wreath/initial

I needed to change out my wreath from Target, the artificial berries have been falling off and break off so easily so I decided to do the whole initial thing. Very simple, just paint, little pattern, and burlap and wa la! 
I decided to make a burlap wreath to go behind

Splish Splash Beach Ball Birthday Party

Konner turned the big "2" and I wanted to have a pool party in our new neighborhood but I was nervous the pool would be closed or it would be too cool or even rainy and thanks to my mother-n-law she always lets us use her blow up slide/pool so instead of using "pool party" for the theme I made it a "splish splash" theme and used beach balls as the inspiration. The weather was HOT and the pool was opened so we were able to use the pool and I was so happy, except........

We had one hiccup about two days before the party as we found out the clubhouse compressor in the air conditioner was totally out and the air company could not get it ordered and installed by Saturday as we found the problem on Thursday.  I cried as I imagined all of our guests being HOT or our cupcakes, cake pops, and candy melting.

Saturday morning we installed THREE window air units which helped a bit so I just started the decorating which was therapy for me and I forgot all about it and honestly it was cool and not hot at all inside being that it was the hottest day of the year!   The turn out was great and everything worked out as planned.
