Birthday Prep

I'm here, just busy getting ready for Emma's birthday party on Saturday, as well as company coming in town Sunday. Her party is an American Girl luncheon. Every thing is coming together despite the fact that I appear to be coming down with something.

This is some of what's been keeping me busy. These are the goody cones for our guests and our little conversation starter box with questions like: "If you could have any super power you wished, what would it be?" Emma says she would wish for sea powers so she could breath under water and talk to the fish. What a great idea! Those of you who were at Silver Bella might recognize the tarted up pink box below that we got in our goody bags the first night. Apparently the color theme for the party is blush and bashful. You can't go wrong with that, right?

  1. Just found your fabulous blog and wanted to say hello!

    Your post certainly makes me wish I had a little girl! :) I'll gladly settle for trucks, dinosaurs, and pirate parties - but a girl can dream eh?

  36. Everything looks sooooo great! I hope the party was wonderful! I was really jealous when I read your comment to me that you had weather nice enough to have windows open and to be working in the yard - that sounds so lovely. We woke up with snow on the ground.
