It's Time To Party!




Good morning friends. If you read my blog last summer then you might remember that I hosted a porch party on my birthday. Many of you joined in and we all had fun with it so, I've decided to have another one again this year. We'll be out of town for a wedding on my birthday, so it's going to be on June 1. So come join the party and tell your friends. If you don't have a porch it can be a deck, or even a patio, whatever outdoor space you like to live in during the summer months.
In case this is new to you, all you have to do is take some photos of your porch all dressed up for a party. Please copy the photo I have and use it on your blog, and tell your friends about it.
Make sure you let me know at least by May 31 that you want to join in the fun. Please have your post all ready first thing in the morning of June 1. I suggest you write it up the day before and set the time to post at 6:00 AM on June 1. As I receive the names I will list the blogs on my sidebar. Then the day of the party I will list them in that day's post.
If you change your mind at the last minute and decide not to join in, no problem, just let me know so I can remove your name from the list.
I can't wait to visit with everyone!

  2. That's a good incentive to get me sewing the new cushions that I've been planning for the porch furniture. I remember last year's Porch Party, and how much I enjoyed visiting all those pretty, restful places.

  14. Hi Rhondi,

    What fun. I wish I could join in. I will be away on Vacation during that time. It will be fun to see what everyone does. By the way I love the pillow on your while chair. Where did you find that sweet print.

  15. Hello Rhondi,
    I came across your blog as I was visiting Supplies Overflowing. I adore your blog. It is so quaint and warm. I love your porch party idea and would love to participate. I will have to pass as it is too hot already here in AZ! We are in the 100's already. So I will have to save my porch activities for the fall and winter. Love the idea though.What a creative lady you are! Ange

  18. Hi Rhondi,
    I like to take part too.I don't have a porch but a garden with a big terrace and...we have a party on the 29th of may and the 1th of june.And the reason is....I became a grandma last saterday!! God gave us a beautiful little granddaugter called Anne-Fleur. On the 29th she will be baptised and we will have a family party to celebrate that and on the first of june the friend of the young parents are invited to a sort of coctail party to celebrate the birth.
    So your date couln't be better.See you on the first of june( also our wedding anniversary!)

  28. Hi Rhondi! I haven't been by for awhile and I've missed so much! I love your new header. The quilt you made is gorgeous!!! It's so nice that you had the opportunity to visit with your grandchildren. They are adorable and I am quite sure they did a good job of tuckering you out.
