A little Inspiration

I hope everyone is enjoying their weekend! I am relaxing at the cottage, the weather isn't that great but hey its got a view of the water and sunset. Thought I would share some room inspiration with you.

I love the neutral colours of this room with the dark chocolate wood and fabrics.
Love the fabrics!! 

The colour combination in this photo is great the greens, browns and yellow are so
earthy and creates a outdoors feel indoors.

This is a great colour combination of  grey and yellow. 

I LOVE the large horse print in the back!!

Banquettes

 I really love banquette seating in kitchens, I think they look fabulous!! They would be so much more comfortable to sit in then chairs and it is a great way to add more fabrics to a space that has so many hard surfaces.

My two favourite pictures are #6 & 8. I love the idea of the banquette on the other side of the island, the colours and fabrics used in the last photo are gorgeous and the pedestal table in the centre looks great.

What do you think of banquette seating?

3rd Birthday

My little guys 3rd birthday is coming up in a few weeks and I think it is time to start planning. For his last two birthday's I have done large parties with friends and family up to 30-35 people but this year I think I will just have a small one maybe around 15 people.

For J's first birthday I did the "1st Birthday" theme and for his second birthday I did Toy Story theme because he was so into it. At both parties my sisters and I made tones of food and decorated everything I even rented large jumpy things for the kids to play in. This year I think I will pass on all of that and just do something relaxing and laid back and enjoy myself (O did I mention it is my birthday too!! yes, we share the same birthday!!)

Here are some pictures from his past two parties...



I had the cup cakes and cake made by a cousin, they were delicious!

My sisters and I bought all the fruit and veggies from the farmers market.
We put all the dishes together and made the fruit bouquet.
Happy 1st Birthday!!



This is the jumpy thing I got for the kids, they spent the whole day in it. J was still a little to small so he didn't like it very much but for his second birthday I couldn't get him out of it! I got a bigger one for his second birthday it included a slide, climbing wall, jumping area and a basket ball net. It was well worth it, they loved it!!


O yes and this is my cake!!

 For J's second birthday Britt and I decided we would make our own cupcakes and I think they turned out great!! They looked good and they tasted great!




Once again we went to the farmers market to get all the fruit and veggies.







Although his birthday parties were fun and everyone loved them I don't really want to do it again... This year anyway. I think I am going to wait to have a big birthday for him again until he is in school and can invite friends to come.

For his birthday this year I am thinking superhero theme...He loves spiderman and iron man.....So let the planning begin.
