Birthday Madness

Early August is a crazy time for our family... mainly because 3 out of the 4 kid's birthdays, PLUS our anniversary fall within the span of a week.  This year, the soon to be 11 year old wanted a "Tea Party" themed birthday with her friends, and after a week or so of planning, this is what we came up with!  The menu included:  Chocolate frosted cupcakes, Lemon Scones with Lemon Glaze, World Tea Lemon Cookies, and an assortment of Fruity Herbal Teas (with cream and sugar, of course!)

Wouldn't you know it, though.... the night before the party I went out to the storage area to retrieve the tea cups.... and then I remembered all those episodes of "HOARDERS".... Yep.  That's right... I donated all of those rarely used teacups to Goodwill.  Sooooo.... I had to make an early morning run BACK to Goodwill to purchase teacups (to the tune of $14!!!!).  That's what watching TV will get you, lol!

The party was definitely a hit, though!

I made up several sheets of Fairy Tea Place-Markers to set our tea table, and I thought someone else might be able to use them for their little girl's special day.  Simply print out, add the name, color and fold in half.   (Click the picture to download from dropbox)

Little brother also had a birthday party to attend today, which necessitated a gift for 8 year old cousin.  What to do...... Oh yes!  A drawstring pouch to hold his large collection of die-cast cars (with a couple thrown in for good measure).  I have been getting a lot of use out of this Lined Drawstring Bag tutorial these days!
