Sunflower BBQ plans
Late this afternoon we went to a local craft store to get artificial flowers for decorating for the BBQ that we are hosting in a couple of weeks. We only get to host this particular family shindig every couple of years. It is a lot of fun--at least to me, but I like to entertain. My wife, um not so much. I rent a big canopy so that rain or shine we are comfortable, and big round tables so that conversation can flow easily. But I think a big white canopy looks sort of ugly on its own and tables should have centerpieces to look welcoming. My wife loves sunflowers so we used that as the theme. I got some garlands of greenery to wire on some artificial sunflowers and 3 centerpieces with the sunflower theme (almost 50 per cent off) It is all ready fall in the craft store and winter is just around the corner. (I spied a small section of yule stuff there too and practically ran the other way!!) I know it has to be out there. I know I myself need to put a holiday gift on layaway in the next week or two. I am just not emotionally ready to admit that summer is fleeing all too fast!
