bright red house. We're a long way from being done, but it thrills me every time I see it.
People had to walk up a dark lane way so I had to be creative. I strung dozens of small mason jars along the edge of the trees, and popped LED tea lights inside. It had such a pretty effect without any risk of fire, or the need to relight burn-outs.
To anyone who has a birthday near some kind of national celebration, you may relate to having your parties fall predictably into patterns of decor. This was no exception. I used pumpkins everywhere. Hope you didn't mind Kate! The kids and I had fun isolating patterns and designs with tape and gold spray paint.
pretty banner strung above it was a handmade gift from one of Kate's closest friends. So pretty.
Happy birthday my darling sister.
