Party Inspiration - Secret Fields

So I am hosting a Matilda Jane party in a couple weeks and I'm extra super excited because of a few things...

1. The new line is so darn cute.
2. We are having a photographer join us to take pictures of the kiddos!
3. I'm using some MAEVE pieces to sass up the space!  

So... I've been looking for inspiration.  


I love the idea of a "back to school" theme-ish. 


I love the idea having round balloons because little girls go gaga over balloons. 


This Cupcake liner garland is pretty darn cute... 


I have a large white frame like this that we could use if we wanted to...



And I have a new paper flower obsession... so... yea...

The collection is called Secret Fields so I think flowers would be vondaful!
Here's a few pictures from their blog...




And here are the Maeve pieces I'm thinking about using... 






Can't wait to see how it all comes together... 
And a little more inspiration... 
Sorry my inspiration is just a modge podge of pictures right now... 







Love it! 
So excited!

Pianos & Soldier Boys

This morning just a few updates...
Warning ::  Crappy Before Pictures
Just Sayin...

So I am a lover of finding cheap things.  I have a slight obsession with finding something for cheaper once I've seen it.  So I came across this Jaymar Piano a while back on ShopGoodwill.com.  I only buy things off there from Indianapolis because I can pick them up.  Otherwise their shipping usually runs at least $15 on top of the purchase price.  Not happening.  So I saw this one on the Indy site and grabbed it up.  I love it.  I love the warped sound, but I wanted to give it a fresh look. 


And with a new obsession with Kelly Green, I figured I could spray paint this piano and it would be perfect in PlayLand.



And it was...







I'm loving it...
And last night Ells was standing playing it...
Too sweet.

I also had this little guy hanging out in my garage from FOREVER ago.  I got him to go in my little brothers room when we made it over a couple years ago but no one liked him as much as I did so all this time he's been sitting in my garage. I always thought I'd paint him white. 


PlayLand needed a little more light at night. So...





I love how he pops on the table...
And blends in with the bright décor in here.
And the brown shade was just something I had on hand so it's probably not permanent.











Do you like my new Solider Boy!?

Mondays...

Anyone else just LOOOVVVEEEE Mondays?! 
Me either. 
What is it about them that just seems to stink so badly? 


Familia came into town this weekend so not much got done in the ways of working around the house, except that messes were made.  But I do have big plans for this week...




In no specific order:


(1) Patio Update.
I've been wanting to overhaul the patio for some time now and we are almost there!  Only problem is that the hubs might tackle this one on his own... Might being the key word there.  He's off this week and I'm not so he might be taking charge on this one.  Which in turn means lack of pictures. 


(2) Home Goods Happy
Everytime my familia comes down we have to go to Home Good s & Nordstrom Rack.  Well this weekend we were Home Goods Happy!


(3) Family Organizer. 
Do you have like a family binder that has all important and pertinent information in it?  Me either.  But I'll show you some fun easy printables that can help with that.


(4) Party Décor Inspiration for my Upcoming Matilda Jane party! 


(5) More Office Inspiration as I need to get my butt in gear to make that one happen.


(6) Just a couple DIYs that have been needed to be blogged for a while. 


And I may or may not have added this little beauty to my house this weekend... 


Now to find a place for her... 

Happy Monday!
