|Sorry for the DARK Picture (banner recycled rom my daughters party!)|
Ok, so back to my birthday! When I realized my birthday was on a Tuesday, I knew exactly what I wanted to do. Ikea to feed the kids (remember, no messy kitchen and table for me to clean up on my birthday!), a little shopping afterwards (what girl doesn't love shopping...and on her birthday!) and then on the way home, I knew we'd pass my favorite mexican food restaurant, Chuy's for a little take-out for me and my sweet husband....after the kids are in bed! Win, Win, Win situation, now! Oh Happy Birthday to ME!
As for the table runner, I borrowed an idea from pinterest- old dictionary pages = new table runner! YAH! I haphazardly taped them together across the table. I decided that with a 1 year old, I probably shouldn't have any over hang. I could just picture the whole thing, including jars of flowers, being yanked off the table.
On to the flowers... they were left over from Mother's Day. I tossed the ones that had died and gave new life to the others. And the jars? They were the jars I bought last year to make pickles in- YUM!
I love how I didn't spend even a dime on any of the decorations for my birthday. I had fun decorating and got to get my craft on all at the same time!
HAPPY (RECYCLED) BIRTHDAY TO ME!
P.S. As for Ikea shopping? My sweetie got me a huge sisal rug that I have had my eye on for a very long time along with creamy white curtains for our living room. Also, he got me a Kindle Fire, too! I'm one lucky 29 year old!
