I just hosted my very first Mother’s Day luncheon! I chose a Tea Party theme because when else can you go hog wild with all things pink and dainty?! Plus, you can only have so many pretend tea parties with plastic, albeit darling, teacups and asking Elmo if he’d like a refill for the 20th time…”MOM! You’re not asking him the right way!!” Anyways, you can imagine my excitement at the thought of using actual glassware and enjoying adult conversation with 3 of my favorite ladies in the whole world!
Brielle and I celebrated Earth Day by making our very first Fairy Garden! She helped me pick out all the flowers and the fairy accessories and it was so much fun making something together! I actually don’t know which part she enjoyed more, throwing the dirt around (we both were covered in it by the time we were done) or nestling the tiny houses into the flowers. Either way, I think it’s safe to say we’re completely obsessed and we can’t wait to create an entire fairy village! We got all the fairy houses and accessories at Michaels.
I wanted to create a whimsical centerpiece for Spring and one that Brielle could help out with. I grabbed one of the wooden boxes Scott had made for me, lined it with plastic wrap and had Brielle start shoveling dirt in. She was a HUGE fan of that 😉 I purchased the carrots online here and stuck them in the dirt!
It’s been ages since I’ve dyed Easter Eggs and I might as well be honest. I have NO artistic talent. My 2.5 yr old can probably draw a better stick figure than I can so I’m not one of those people that can draw these beautiful designs on Easter Eggs. So, since I didn’t want people cooing over Brielle’s fine art work only to be embarrassed later when they find out those scribbles were done by me I cheated my way to pretty eggs. 😉 First up I grabbed a small bag and filled it halfway with rice. Dropped some blue food coloring in the bag and placed the egg in with it. Then you just shake it all and out comes the prettiest speckled egg!
