pretty in pink
Yesterday was my mom's birthday. She is so sweet and thoughtful and does so much for me and so I wanted to make her birthday extra special. However, I am finding it a little more challenging to get out of the house to run errands with three small children! So all of the ideas I originally had went out the window and I was left to improvise with things I had around the house like candles, napkin rings, and ribbon. I was able to get her some plants (you can read about another gift idea using impatiens here) and a funny little metal sign that I thought was a perfect sentiment sitting in a pot of impatiens! Although I wasn't able to get helium filled balloons I blew some up that I had leftover from my daughters party and tossed them on the floor. I added some pink ribbons to an Eiffel Tower and wrote a message on the chalkboard. It was a lovely evening celebrating a lovely woman.
