Decorating Ideas

Posted by Lori:

I enjoy decorating - a lot!  Today I would like to share with you some pictures of decorating ideas from baby showers, school functions, and church functions.  I always like getting new ideas and thought that you might, too! I'll share more in a week or so (when I don't have a new recipe to post :).
Each year I decorate the teacher's workroom area for Teacher's Appreciation Week.  This particular year was an "Under the Big Top" theme. 
The bright colors were so much fun!  Food is served to the teachers throughout the week.  All teachers and staff, Kindergarten through 12th, get food, but I only decorate the elementary workroom.
This was a baby shower, but I have also used it for the teacher's workroom, as well as a wedding shower.  Baby Chloe, who will be one year old soon has her room done in black, white and hot pink.  These decorations fit perfectly!
This is actually a display stand for merchandise at my little tiny booth-rental store, but it was brand new when it was time to decorate for the shower, so it became a cookie stand.
This umbrella is a favorite of mine.  It's a nice touch for a "shower"!
This is a random photo of my husband dressed up for the school Dr. Seuss celebration last year.  He did the whole lesson for me (read about that on my other blog here.).  Since today is Dr. Seuss' birthday, I thought I needed to share this with you!
Cody's daddy is a sports fan....deluxe!  He'll be one tomorrow, so I thought I would share pictures from his baby shower.  Since our mascot is a tiger, I used a lot of my daughter's stuffed tigers.
A "CODY" pennant, a sports fleece blanket, baseballs, bats, footballs, and helmets....all taken from my boys' room.
You may notice that a lot of the pictures are taken in the same room.  It's our church fellowship building.  The round tables are so much fun to decorate.  We have them on half of the big room.
This was a Senior Saints' Banquet for the older members of the church.  Our Bible class hosts the banquet every February.  Obviously the theme for this particular year was western.  I have a friend who gave me a sack full of denim jean pockets!  She has some, too, so we put them together for large events.
The other half of the fellowship room has rectangle tables.  Since the "seniors" only sit on the round table side, I don't decorate quite as much for the other side.  We want to make them feel especially....special!

I hope you enjoy the pictures!  Happy decorating!
