A February Birthday

Wednesday, February 8, 2012

tea table 1 February is the time for birthdays in this home. Little Miss turned 4 years old last Saturday. A big number for a big girl. In the past year, she entered a new pre-school class. She graduated to a car booster seat. We topped 30 pounds, learned to use the potty, learned to feed herself and turned into an older sibling. And we were accepted into Montessori school.

Since she is the only little girl in our family, we go all out. Part of me just can't help it.

This year it was a garden tea party. Fairy wings and wands, vintage touches, and tiny tea cups and treats completed the event. A couple of peeks into what went on behind the scenes this week.

I made sewed little purses out of vintage-like blue floral fabric, one for each little shoulder.

Oh, and the gluten free goodies, linzer cookies, petite fours, and strawberry tartelettes...delicious. More to come on that later.

All for a little girl who turned four. For a mama who loves to craft and bake...and a sweet little girl who loves to help...it was definitely worth it. Oh
