Fall Decor Link Up 2013

Happy Fall everyone! Ok so it doesn't really feel like fall today around here - they are even saying we may set a record today for the heat. Last time it was 29.4 degrees Celcius was 70 years ago!!! Of course I'm not complaining about the heat... I would be quite happy with weather like this over chilly gloomy days. So anyways, I have been in the full on fall decor swing as of late and have been perusing the pictures on pinterest and magazines for some fall decor ideas. We just bought a house in July so I'm excited to have it all decked out for fall. It will be hard to get rid of my flowers since they looked so amazing this year but I'm sure I can find some great filler ideas for my pots by our entryways. We went to a bird educational day this summer and the girls came home with their own painted bird houses so I think I might get hubby to add so stakes to them for now so I can stand them in my pots and I'm looking forward to getting some pumpkins to add and well, we'll see what else we find. I did pick up a sparkly wreath and a cute little scarecrow the other day that the girls just love... Wreath for the front door since we haven't had time to paint our front door yet and the scarecrow is already by our side door greeting everyone as they come home. What is everyone doing for your fall decor this season? I would love to see what you are working on.... I'm going to add a little link up to the bottom of this post so you all can share. In the meantime, here are a few things I'm just loving...

Backyard Butterfly Soiree

What a fun party for little girls!
This one is so easy to put on. Decorate with paper butterfly cutouts and stitch together with your sewing machine or else just tape them to the ends of your balloon curly ribbons for a fun effect over the cake table. Make cute little cupcake toppers with pretzels and icing or if you are feeling a little more ambitious, try making chocolate butterflies. For a great centerpiece, pick up a couple of the wire and nylon butterflies you find at your local dollar stor... so cute and low cost. Why not do a little face painting? You do not need to be an artist to do this. Just pick up some face paint crayons and paint full face butterflies or feeling a bit iffy about face painting.... just add little butterflies on the kids cheeks... I guarantee they will love either design!!!

You can stop by the shop to pick up this adorable butterfly birthday invite here.

Sweet Strawberry Party

The summer is nearing an end and soon fall will be upon us... let's try to celebrate the fruits of the summer season with a SWEET little STRAWBERRY party... or Strawberry Tea Party! This invite and the matching printables have a sweet vintage feel... throw out a pretty patterned quilt in the backyard and add some finger sandwiches and cupcakes for the little ladies and you have a fantastic, low maintenace/low planning, backyard party! Make a little lemonade with strawberries floating in it for colour and flavor... add a few strawberries and some whipped cream.... oh yum!
