Planting Prep

Scenes from a day of preparation—planting table decorations for the Fairy Party far in advance. Since we're planning to party shortly after we get back from the west side—where we're staying while our house is being painted—I thought it would be a good idea to prep ahead.

Venus* and her kids helped out; she's got the same crafting addiction I have. Unfortunately (and fortunately) she has a paying day job that limits her hands-on time with craft. So she recruited Lila* and Barclay* to help us out. It wasn't a hard sell.

It was a great day of planting and pizza. The kids really got into it.

Venus made this beautiful setup. The pots were on super sale at Joann.

The houses are from various thrift stores, and so are some of the other planters.

Don't you want to live here? With a fire in the fireplace and a cup of cocoa or tea? Okay, never mind it's, like, 95 here and what's the deal with the snow?

I love the lush color. Enjoy it, though. The heat fried everything and I get to nearly start over when we get back home.

I know, it's a killer, isn't it? I thought I was saving time by having everything ready in advance. Sigh.
