Party Like It's Your Birthday

As you may have guessed, I have a birthday today.

I posted a couple of days ago about a little bit of color.
Well, it seems that I am just bursting with color.

I did some shopping this past week at TJ Maxx and I found lots of COLOR!

I quick covered four ice cream chair seats.
I used this lime green outdoor table cloth.

I just love all the pretty colors on these pillow cases.
This crib will look even better when I add one of my vintage quilts.

Perfect for a summer party.
Now all I need to look for are some simple tables to set your drinks on.

These stripes are a long way from all white.

More lime green.
I just love the color green.

All of these new cushions are from my father for my birthday, THANKS POP!
Don't tell him until I do, for my family readers!

My friend June from Laughing with Angels left me a comment about my white flowers post,
she tried to plant all white but then found she needed some color.
I thought about that, and I thought I did too.
I still planted lots of white, but now my little bits of color stand out even more.

These planters are ready to be placed around the deck.

This one I still needs a couple of plants added.
I am thinking of maybe trying a couple of white Hydrangeas.

I just love the white and green.

For Mother's Day my little sister came over and helped me plant this flower bed.
It is a little sparse for my cottage garden loving ways.
I can always add a plant or two or hundred if necessary.

This is not my initial white garden, that one may have to be put on the back burner for this year.
We were more in need of a privacy board for the pool.

I did end up adding a little color purple through Lavender plants and some creeping Phlox.

So how about you, how long do you do all white before you bring in little bits of color.
It is Spring, let your colors burst.

I hope all of you mothers had a wonderful Mother's Day.
