What makes a Happy Home? I love to take care of my family. For me, creating a home that is warm and inviting, where everyone feels welcome is pure joy! The smell of fresh laundry just in off the clothesline, a neat and tidy home and garden, a good home cooked meal, a few desserts here and there, the love of family, friends and fellowship all help to make our home a Happy Home. Join me as we celebrate the holidays, the birthdays and the every days!

Yep, that's what I was thinking PINK! As I mentioned earlier, this has been a month of birthdays. These cards were for the girls. I used 1 sheet of card stock for the backs of the cards and only 1/2 sheet of a lighter weight stock for the decorative fronts. Then, yes I used the last of my vintage pink velvet ribbon.
I was sad to use it all, but you know what that means...reason and room to buy more! My MIL's surprise party is next weekend, so I'm not sure how much I'll be around next week. I'm taking off from work next Thursday and Friday to finish cooking, but I feel totally under control.
We're having a small cake and I'm doing a melted chocolate fountain with strawberries, pretzels, marshmallows and lady fingers. I'd still like to have one other dessert. Any suggestions?
The rest of the menu is pretty set - Meatball Sandwiches, Italian Roast Pork, Chicken and Broccoli Alfredo, Potato Salad, Caesar Salad, Deviled Eggs, Veggies and (2) Dips, Chips, Pretzels and Dip, Cheese and Fruit Platter. I'll make most of these items next Friday and Thursday will be shopping for last minute items. If anyone has any suggestions for another side dish I love to hear it.
I'm joining Beverly for this week's Pink Saturday - be sure to pop on over and see what she and other lovers of Pink have going on!
