Dining Room Switch, Flowers, and Party Stuff for Sale

First just a brief mention.....if you loved the birthday party decor that I made for my party, some of them will be going up for sale on my Etsy tomorrow (link in sidebar)

Next order of business.....the dining room and living room switcheroo that I did for the party to improve the "flow" just might be permanent. 

It still needs some tweaks to be just right but I really like it. What do you think?

I know, I know...it's like I am playing a game of musical chairs and nothing in the house is sacred. It all moves and changes OFTEN.
I just re-did everything not long ago, pics of the previous room are here>>Dining Room<<in case you haven't seen it and are curious.

My sister gave me a $20 gift card to Lowes (smart girl!!) and here is what I bought.....
 A flowering Almond Bush/Tree
I love the small pink and white blooms.

  16. You have so much energy to be switching rooms around! It looks great. How do the white chair covers do with kids? I think my kids pick up their plates and dump them with the mess I have after every meal. I haven't even attempted to cover any chairs because of that. But yours look so pretty I might be convinced to try!
