I'll save the whole "It's been a while bit". I have something worth
pinning sharing and I want credit to share it with everyone. My son turned one recently, and thanks to an unhealthy addiction to Pinterest
I had to make it way too fabulous. We have a great park not far from
our house so I staked out a perfect location right by the playground.
One thing our family has loved to do before we were a family and just a
couple of D.I.N.K.S.(Double Income No Kids) was going on a picnic. So
the theme was set. I bought gingham fabric and ribbon in red, orange,
yellow, bright green and teal (Hobby Lobby) paper goods at Dollar Tree,
and borrowed mason jar glassware from a friend. I used cut fabric for
the table cloth (scrap white fabric underneath and plastic on top so I
can reuse it later). I also made some banners using my good friend hot
glue (mamma never taught me to sew...and I didn't pay enough attention
when public school tried to teach me). I made my Pinterest board proud
and made painted mason jars and filled them with faux geraniums.
