October weather is simply unpredictable. We were hoping for clear skies and semi-warm temperatures as the weather people promised last week, but we didn't quite get that. I was lucky however to get in a few pictures of the decorations before the rain came. Some didn't make any though, like my butterfly pumpkin, or the utensil buckets that you saw in this Instagram photo I shared weeks ago:

I just didn't get around to taking them, and they didn't last long outside. I didn't even bother putting out the confetti at all. The wind was fierce as you can see in some of these photos below (just look at the blue tablecloths):

I made this birthday banner for my daughter using card stock and gold adhesive letters found at Target. Then I punched out a few butterflies using this punch and this punch and attached them to the banner with tape.
