Spring Front Porch

Hi friends! We sure have been enjoying the beautiful spring weather lately. These 70 degree days and sunny temperatures sure are dreamy. I love seeing all the flowers in full bloom and our pups are especially loving their extra long walks!

Our hydrangeas are in full bloom and have our front porch looking so full! I love our little front porch this time of year because all the blooms make it such a welcoming space. I absolutely love big southern wraparound porches complete with a swing and a couple of rocking chairs! However, our little porch has limited space, so I try to use every inch that we have :) Come on in and take a little tour of our spring/summer front porch!

Oh Joy! Eddie's Birthday Dinner

This past weekend we celebrated my favorite person's birthday with a little dinner soiree at our house :) Eddie's birthday fell right in the middle of my final exams this year, but we were still able to celebrate in style thanks to the gorgeous party collection by Oh Joy for Target! I was SO excited when I spotted the collection a few weeks ago: fun, festive and frugal! The birthday dinner was a wonderful celebration of my favorite person in the world. I wanted to show you all how the Oh Joy collection packs such a big bang for your buck! :)

I used wrapping paper to create the runner and the napkin rings. The "happy birthday" chalkboard print is by Dear Lillie and I had it made as an engineering print last year at staples for $3 bucks! It's something I love pulling out to celebrate birthdays :) The antique brass candlesticks were a gift from my auntie a few years ago. My secret weapon for budget-friendly cakes is none other than Harris Teeter. A single layer round cake is less than $13!

I was thrilled with how easily everything came together to create a fun & festive look for the birthday boy :) My favorite part was the "hooray" cake topper!!

My niece especially loved the party hats!! :)

brother & sister :)

All in all it was a great birthday celebration :) From what I have read, there will be four Oh Joy collections in Target stores throughout the year: spring, summer, fall, and holiday. Each will have lots of color and allow you to mix and match patterns easily. I know I am looking forward to seeing the other collections as they come out! :)

What do you think? Would you use an Oh Joy party pack for your next shindig?
