Portland Home and Garden Show {Family Fun}

It was quite the event filled day today,...but when is it not? It began with me getting my eldest ready for picture day, and my husband forgetting his phone at home. Finally after about 10 phone calls from people at his work, I decided to track him down at the Vineyard and take it to him.
There was lots of picking going on around there.

Then what was going to be a fun little trip to Portland for a couple hours turned disastrous as we were stuck in stop and go traffic.
But, we made it to the Home and Garden Show and looked around for a couple hours. There was lots of vendors and them some Amazing showcases with an entertaining theme. I snapped photos of a few of my favs. 

After that it was rush rush back in horrendous traffic to get home in time for my eldest to get out of school and then rush to her soccer game. And they won. Again. :) 4/5 games now!

I'm looking forward to a low key weekend with the kids around the house, straightening up and perhaps tackling some organizing that in desperate need to happen.

And of course, decorating for Halloween. :)

A beautiful display of a night time picnic with sparkling butterflies over head. Wish I could have gotten a better photo of this one.

"Dinner at Tiffany's" display. I adore the colors and the movie scene in the back window!

One of my absolute favs... a wedding theme, with a gorgeous table display, sparkles everywhere, and the carousel horses. The lighting in person took my breath away.
Another one with amazing lighting. Who wouldn't want a glowing tablecloth like that?

Romantic outdoor dinner decor with an Italian vibe! So beautiful.


  1. Oh my goodness those Halloween set ups are amazing! I'd love to have seen them in person :)

  2. My boyfriend is notorious for leaving his phone at home too, I'm not even sure why he has one since he rarely remembers it. Ugh stop and go traffic is the worst glad your day turned out better in the end.

    Found you thru the Share the Love Hop! :)

  3. Wow, those pictures were awesome! I truly had no idea what was in the home show. Guess I thought it was a bunch of RVs, furniture, and patio supplies. That reminds me of when Chris took you girls to a Christmas tree show! I wonder if they have one up there. I'd sure LOVE to see photos from that as well!

  4. Those setups are amazing. I bet they were pretty amazing to see in person. I'm your newest follower.
