For several years after Pop died, we decorated her Christmas tree in her favorite bright colors. She likes butterflies and peacocks.
When I started thinking about decorations for the party, I decided to use these colors. The church has big round tables and white table clothes. Earlier I had made red table runners, so I decided I would make table runners for this party also. If I made them reversible, with blues on one side and pink on the other, they could be used later for baby showers.
So I began the hunt for the colors that would all go together. I wandered around Hobby Lobby. I wandered around Hancocks. I wandered around JoAnns. I would pick up one fabric and hunt for a coordinating fabric. I would put that down and try again. Finally after buying fabric from ALL THREE STORES, I came up with this combination.
I am not much of a photographer and it is dark at 7:30 am. The colors are much brighter. Maybe I will update the pictures later. I took all the fabrics to my quilting group and they helped me cut the fabric. During my garage sale I sewed up the strips. Then last night at quilting, we sewed the two sides together, turned them and stitched in the ditch.
They will look so pretty on the tables.
I am going to use the Christmas decorations to make an ornament mobile. Thank you Natalie for the great tutorial. In my curb watch this week, I found a wreath with 2 wire rings that will be perfect for this. When I get it finished, you will be the first to see the finished product.
Megan arrives Thursday to spend 10 days with us. We have Brad’s family reunion on April 2 and Mommy’s birthday party on April 9th.
