Deke's 11.5 and Economy Flowers

The plants in our urns were on their last leg and I needed to replace them,
so I made a croquet mallet bouquet.
I have actually never purchased a croquet set,
they have all been found at the curb!

Today we are celebrating Deke's 11 1/2 Birthday!
Do you celebrate Half Birthdays?

Isn't that just the cutest.

Can I steal this idea, blog about it, and link to your post about it. Wow! I hope you say yes. This is so cute. Pretty please!

Linda Crispell said...

It's all yours Joan!

Just came over to see where Joan 'stole' her planter design!!LOL

Wicked cute idea with those mallets! Perhaps you should look for cast off umbrellas for early spring?

That's a great cake for the half-occasion!

Oh so clever! That cake looks delish. Happy Birthday Deke!

Love your croquet set...we used to have one when I was growing up. We played for hours!!! Happy 11.5 Deke!

What a fantastic idea!! You really should have a book about entertaining!

Wonderful idea and the perfect ending to summer.

If I can eat cake, I will certainly begin to celebrate half birthdays! In fact, I may start to celebrate quarter-birthdays.

Half-birthdays are the sweetest? My friend Amy celebrates her own, all to herself with a little splurge. A tradition worth starting for oneself, don't you agree??
