Congrats : A Waffle Party

I could possibly eat waffles everyday, which lead me to hosting a waffle breakfast to help celebrate my mom’s retirement with a few of her favorite friends.

This past weekend I hosted a small party in honor of her retirement.  I still find it amazing that she worked at the same company for over 33 years. Something you rarely see anymore.

Decorating for parties is always a favorite. I wanted to keep this party simple but colorful.

Once the paint dried I cut around the bows and then hung each one on the side of the balloon banner.

It was a fun morning with lots of girl talk and celebrating. Everyone left with full bellies and adding a waffle maker to their want list.  I think we need to find more reasons to  have waffle parties.

      The table runner is a white paper from a roll. I used a variety of paints to create the colored stripes.ReplyCancel
