Exciting news! Kari Trumbo's new book in the Independence Island Series is coming out soon! To celebrate, all the authors in the series are sharing their themed table decorations. Be sure to vote for yours by clicking on the links below.
Without further ado...here's my themed table. I chose the farm theme because that is the theme of my kitchen and we live out in the country. We love having lots of room to run, fresh air, and love raising chickens and growing a garden.
Many of the items on my party table have a special meaning for me, so I will go through all six of them to explain. This will be fun! I hope you enjoy!
1 & 2. Something Floral / A Gift : These farm vases were a wonderful housewarming gift from my mom. When my husband and I had two wonderful boys, we started dreaming of moving somewhere with a little more room. So, three years ago we moved out to the country and love it. We don't miss the city at all, except for the grocery stores being close...LOL.
3. Something unique to me: I love collecting chicken figurines. One of the things I looked forward to the most about our move to the country was getting chickens. So....within a few months after moving in, we got five little hens. Now our flock has grown to nine! We love our girls. They give us fresh eggs and provide hours of entertainment with their quirky personalities. If you read my books, you might see a few chickens included in my stories.4. Something Crystal: This crystal dish was given to me by my mother in law. It is a very pretty addition to my china cabinet and a wonderful family heirloom from my husband's side.
5. Something Gold: This beautiful tea cup and saucer set was passed down from my grandmother. You can't see very well in this picture, but the handle and rim are lined with gold. These are very special to me and remind me of Grammy. She loved to play the piano and had a very strong faith in the Lord.
6. Something that represents my writing Part 1: My upcoming Independence Island release! I can't wait to share this one with you all.
7. Something that represents my writing Part Two: My writing notebook is something I carry around when I travel. When my computer isn't present, I have to record my ideas somewhere right? LOL! As a writer, ideas are always coming to me, no matter where I am...yes, even on vacation, when I'm not supposed to be writing.
