I’m so excited for spring…even though here in Calgary, we are still trudging through snow and braving negative temperatures..brrr!
It’s taken me a while, but now I love entertaining friends and family. When I first got married, I only wanted to have people over when my house was squeaky clean, the menu was amazing and everything was just right.
Well, guess what? As time goes on and we have kids, lessons, work, volunteering, sports, etc., you soon realize that quality time with friends and family is way more important than a picture-perfect house.
I guess you could say, I’ve lowered my standards a bit (and so have my friends!) and we are all better for it.
Now, having said that…I still like to try and have the house tidied up and the table set nicely (even if stuff is thrown in the closet!). Sometimes, if I’m really feeling creative, I’ll go with a theme…like our birthday Lobster Bash a few years ago. Here’s a simple, but pretty tablescape I saw recently at Home Outfitters.
There is something so beautiful and welcoming about a unique and interesting centerpiece…it can set the mood and the right vibe for your guests.
So, let’s #SpringIntoFun with a new giveaway, shall we? I’m giving away a $50 gift card to Home Sense so one lucky person can get a head start on their spring and summer decorating.
Home Sense is one of my favorite stores…I actually need to limit my trips there or else I’ll spend too much money. I hope the winner can find something nice for her home and then share a picture with us in the Party of Five Facebook group in the coming weeks. Aren’t a member yet? Please join!
