Tea... I mean, lemonade, really. We had a nice time. The girls were great at my daughters tea birthday party. They played so nice together. We decorated hats, they played house with the doll house and then we had cake, opened presents and had tea (lemonade).
I told my parents that the party had came up so quickly that I really did not have time to decorate and prepare like I wanted to. My younger daughters birthday always sneaks up on me because it is so soon after the Holidays. My Father said to me, "when all is said and done, it will be about the people at the party, not the decorations." I think my soul smiled at that moment because he is right. Its funny how I can become so wrapped up in getting things perfect or even just done and lose sight of the things that are really important.
They all did a huddle around my daughter as she opened presents. They were all so excited and their little smiles were truly a joy. It was the best time!
If you are wondering about the cake. I used two Wilton oval cake pans. I put them together using frosting and straws. The polka dots, spout, top and handle are made with fondant. I made those a week beforehand so that they had time to harden.
Thanks for stopping by. I love to create, especially in the kitchen and at the sewing machine. I love to cook, bake and quilt. These are what I am passionate about.
I am also passionate about the state of our food in this country and how it relates to us and our well being.
