Patriotic Transformation to the Outside...

Happy 4th of July weekend coming up!
Welcome to our porch where we are going to be having several
friends and family over....
Food, Fun and Festivities.

The placemats are my thrifty find for the week. They are hand crocheted and were found at my favorite Thrift store! Yippeeee!

On our deck I transformed this wee little chest of drawers...it was very O~L~D! I lined the drawer with plastic and planted away! I poked little holes in the plastic so it could drain.
Below is one of our tables set for the Festivities. I love cupcakes and made some special ones for this weekend.



An old bucket planted spray painted red brings a little more patriotic color to the porch.


Thanks for stopping by...be sure to take a cupcake with you!!!
Playing along with these wonderful blogs!
Blessings,
Debbie
