Entertaining

This house is great for entertaining.  We've had a few small gatherings and the house has been great. Today I had about 15 people and it really showed that the floorplan is great for having people over.  Sometimes I wish our house was bigger or that we had an extra room on the first floor, but for entertaining purposes everyone gathers in the kitchen/morning room/living room area.  Of course the morning room was the biggest hit.  Here's how I set it up:

 Some decorations.  Shh don't tell my husband I used tape on the fresh paint!

Finally my fireplace was dressed up a bit.
This has nothing to do with my house, but while I'm uploading pictures I thought I'd show this.  Writing this  blog has become a hobby, here's my other one.  It isn't perfect, but I'm learning.

  7. The decorations and cake look great! You have one lucky friend! :) It is so nice to have more room for entertaining for sure. We are looking forward to having our first more than one night guests come to stay with us (my dad and his better half). They will be here for a week in April so it will be nice to have more space.

  9. Thanks everyone! I love teaching, but if I could make money party planning I would totally do it. Give me a theme and I'll run with it!

    After the baby shower I had a couple of friends over last night and then a friend and her kids over in the morning and another family over in the afternoon. I'm tired! I think I'll take a week or two off from entertaining.
