My Baby Girl is Turning 6 and Party Plans are Underway!

I cannot believe it! Ava Rose is turning 6 on August 4th. Time really goes by way too fast. I try to enjoy ever single day with her and still it went so quickly. I savored the baby years and toddler years. Cried for the first day of pre-k and kindergarten now I have a first grader!

Ava Rose is a true miracle. I truly had faith that she would come into my life and always believed, trusted and was very patient. So the day she was born is a true celebration for me. I celebrate that Ava Rose is a gift from heaven and that she is an amazing little girl. Truly taking after me she loves party planning and decorating and parties are a big deal at our house. Ava Rose starts to plan her birthday in the winter. She carefully thinks about a theme all winter long. I always tell her don't rush it! But she loves it so we plan and plan. This year she decide on a Country Western Hoedown. The planning, shopping and decorating is well underway for at least a month now. We enjoy every minute of it. Creating a guest list, writing out invitations, and of course researching on pinterest and coming up with a full plan. Then shopping!! We create everything from the table arrangements to full props.

Ava Rose's first birthday


Ava Rose is involved in all aspects of the party planning. Even selecting the menu. This year we decided on a Country American picnic mostly vegetarian menu. We found a great chef that worked with us to select some fun comfort foods - southern mac and cheese, corn muffins, chili, corn on the cob, old fashioned potato salads and picnic salads and sandwiches. We will have old fashioned lemonade, ice tea and of course a sundae bar!

Of course no party of Ava's would not be complete without a horse so her favorite horse will come and wish Ava a happy birthday and provide fun for the kids. We have lots of games planned like potato sack races, horse shoe throw and digging for gold. As well as a photo booth and old fashioned village.

We believe in paying it forward and giving back so each year before the party we go through all of Ava's toys and clothing and donate them to local charities. I also taught Ava Rose that it is important to save for what she would like and she saves her coins all year round to pay for her favorite horse to come to the party.

Ava Rose turns 5. 2013 

Ava Rose's party is this Saturday so we have a busy week ahead as we start to decorate but we will have photos soon to share with you.

Feeling so blessed!

Our Styles for your Lifestyle

Lavender Fields is pleased to offer an easy way to shop. We have selected our top selling products and have added them by lifestyle. Shop for every lifestyle from cottage living to coastal living, to refreshing a guest room or creating the perfect outdoor retreat. We offer free design assistance and free shipping on most items. We also ship worldwide. Contact our designers today at 866-898-5461.

Coastal Style is comfortable and relaxed and interiors in this style reflect that mood. Rooms are loosely arranged and casually outfitted, fabrics are simple, natural, and durable. Our favorite coastal colors are clear blues, sea greens, creamy whites, and beige which all call to mind the hues of sand and water. Nautical and beach accents, such as shells, coral, and sea creatures, lighten up the look and bring in a touch of nature. Lavender Fields is the one place where you can find everything to decorate your beach house, coastal cottage or castle by the sea. 

We never tire of beautiful farmhouse decor. From a rustic table, to a rocking chair, a warm quilt or the perfect rug Lavender Fields specializes in farmhouse and country style furniture and decor. Our designers are on staff to help you decorate your farmhouse or country style home.

Nothing reminds us more of childhood summers than a cozy lake cottage. Fishing rods and baskets, Adirondack chairs and cozy throws for summer nights on the porch. The designers at Lavender Fields are here to help you select the perfect camp and lake house style decor whether it is for a summer home or a special room in your house we are here to help.
New Traditional Style is somewhere in between traditional and contemporary style. The merging of the styles is often called "transitional" but we like to call it New Traditional. New Traditionalists appreciate historic architecture, interiors and furnishings while also admiring clean lines, light walls and some modern designs.

"Prairie Style encompasses much more than decorating. It highlights the values of an honest lifestyle. It is about family, traditions, respect for the earth and the past, animals--small and large, the beauty of simplicity, the comforts of home and the appreciation of handmade and home made, not mass produced items." - Fifi O'Neill

From Lake Houses to Beach Houses Lavender Fields Has It All

We just love decorating vacation homes. 
I grew up going to our summer cottage in the Catskills and my sister and I got the best decorating education from going to the many flea markets and yard sales with our dad.

There was just something about opening our summer cottage for the season. 
The sound of the wood screen door, the fun of taking out all of our games that we forgot about all winter. Cookouts and lazy days by the lake. Nights of smores and fireflies. 
It takes me back to those days. 
When I am asked to decorate a vacation home I get so happy! 

Here are some of my favorite picks for you. And if you do not get away this summer then add a few items like our favorite decorative pillows to give your home that summer vacation feel.  And as always I am here to give you free design assistance when selecting items from our online store. Happy Summer! Lori - Owner/Interior Designer
