Anatomy of a Birthday Party....

3 cake mixes + 3 tubs of frosting = super cute and inexpensive centerpiece/cake
Back yard random blooms + pair of scissors = inexpensive decorations
Cheap brown bed sheet (yikes on the thread count) + bright happy pots = cheap re-usable table settings
Colorful card stock + bold block lettering = a great outdoor banner
galvanized bucket + ribbon and ice = perfect drink cooler
Happy Birthday Erika, I hope you and your friends had a great time!!

Inspiration...

I absolutely love these covered jars from Crate and Barrel. I was so inspired when I saw them I cleaned and displayed some of my own covered jars and hope to add these two to my collection.
It turned out really cute, a couple of hater's told me it looks a little sterile, but you could also make an arrangement with colored glass. The colors are amazing and the reflection changes all throughout the day.
It's garage sale season so keep an eye out for glass jars, they can be really inexpensive but make great decorative statements.
