4th of July & Giveway Winner!!

Well, our first party at the new house was a success!! My family came over for Christian's birthday party/ 4th of July party.

Below, my grandmother painted this cute sign for the event. (The realtor left the 'For sale' sign at our house when we moved in and after calling & leaving messages for her to come & get it & not hearing back for a couple of months, we figured it was ours- I think it'll be fun to repaint for parties/ events)
The kids had a great time (below) and my mom pushed them around in a Power Wheel Jeep. (It was being trashed on the side of the road so we picked it up but the battery's dead ;) How pretty is Natalie in her princess party dress?!!

Here are some [repeat] photos of the tables (below). It cracked me up when a guest was carrying a bunch of drinks in her hands and asked if she was allowed to set them down on this table or if it was "staged." hahahah uh-oh, have I gone tpo far with this?!! hahah (ps- I think EVERYTHING should be used- even pretty tables!!)

And the plaster of paris flag holders my grandmother made:

And how cute is Christian's mini wheelbarrow-turned-bar? (We used our big wheelbarrow too for the rest of the drinks but this pic is so much better :)

And here is the birthday boy (below)... He had the best time!!! We sang "happy birthday" twice so he could blow out the candles 2 times. He loved it.

And finally, we have a winner for the rug giveway!! It's Kristen Foster from falls Village, CT. She has her own fabric workroom & makes everything from curtains to bedding. Kristin, I sent you an email, so as soon as you get the chance, can you send me your mailing address at lauren@thepurestyle.com?

I hope everyone had a great weekend & thank so much for participating in the giveaway & for joining Pure Style Home!! :) I had SO MUCH FUN reading everyone's favorite smells & wanted to change my favorites a million times!!!

Cute wheelbarrow bar!


Your backyard is so pretty and green! That giant tree is awesome. The wheelbarrow bar is the best and what great use of a For Sale sign! Glad the little guy had such a good time. Cuteness!

Thanks again for the rug. It'll be put in use on the screened porch. We eat out there all summer what a nice addition to that living area.

your son is beyond cute- that blonde hair kills me, I love it :)

AND your backyard is amazing! Everything looks so perfect for the party- of course it is your party and I would not expect anything less. The comment about staged table is too funny!

Oh, and the painted sign for his birthday is just perfect! Glad you had a great weekend and good weather too- xoxox

What a fun party - I can't decide if the cute flags in the plaster of paris, or the wheel barrow, or the cute birthday boy is my favorite!
