SNEAK PEAK OF MY DECORATING FOR MUM'S 88th BIRTHDAY next week~~~~~~~~~~








Hi ladies..well it is absolutely pouring down here in Melbourne today, which is a great shame with the races on at Flemington...DERBY DAY~~~

all the ladies would have gone dressed in "their finest" attire, only to be met by rain (which I have to say is still kind of a "noveltly" here in Melbourne having had soooo many years of draught & no rain..
Nevertheless, I have been busy INSIDE preparing for mum's 88th birthday surprise party on Tuesday 2nd november...MELBOURNE CUP DAY!!~~~

Today was "DECOR" day...getting the table/kitchen area ready..looking nice etc..
Lots of pink flowers/buntings/bows/rose petals/vintage plates/vintage rose placemats/plates/lollies/cath kidston napkins/my PINK DYED DOILIES/crochet goodies of course are in the mix!!!.. etc etc~~~~
trying to make it look very pink/feminine/girly/floral/flowery for mum...

busy tying pink crepe paper into bows on Each of the chairs..with material with PEARLS & little pink/white paper flags in the mix?
COOKING tomorrow & MONDAY & tuesday morning ..

sandwiches...cupcakes... petit fours...lamingtons...mini sausage rolls..chicken wings...orange cake...nut loaves...scones...mini quiches...are ALL on the menu...

I shall be a busy little bee??....

I would have shown some more photos but am still using my old laptop with my other one ready to be picked up re my mishap shoving a disc into it..
It makes me realise HOW AWESOME my other laptop is...

this one is just too hard to navigate ....

anyway...hope you like the few photos i have been able to show on this computer!!
