I know spring is here because I have friends in North Carolina and Texas that are now posting pictures on Facebook with beautiful azaleas in the background. A friend in Virginia posted landscapes with blooming Dogwoods and Empress tress. One of my best friends, also in Virginia, has the most amazing yellow Forsythia in her front yard. She just posted a family picture in front of it that included her newest addition, her two week old son. (Two weeks now, more like one week in the pic.)
Blooming Forsythia AND a newborn.
Now that's a spring picture.
I'm a little jealous.
Here in Florida, our weeds are looking healthier.
I'm all about year-round beach weather, but it is a shame we have to sacrifice spring.
Still. I try. This week I added a little centerpiece to the table that cost me all of... nodda. (Salvaged the flowers from an old bouquet, had everything else, will need to spend a little when it comes time to replace flowers, but so far not a penny.)
Every egg contained spring stickers so after the hunt the kiddos could use their stickers for an Easter picture.
This was AFTER we'd already made a heckuva mess inside using shaving cream and paint to color flowers.
As for the set up... I don't have a table in my breakfast nook. On purpose. I like it open. I like to put my Christmas tree there. I had extra disposable plastic tableclothes from a previous party so I just taped one to the floor in this open spot. Yes, shaving cream and paint still got on the bench seats and tile, but it wiped up fine.
As for the how-to using shaving cream to paint. Go here.
And because it was a playdate there had to be a spread.
Mini fruit pizzas. Yum!
See? Even our food is getting more colorful :-)
Happy Spring! And happy Friday!
