Pink Party

I can hardly believe that our sweet girl turned 7 this week. 
She is the most precious little person: kind, funny, energetic, and completely motherly. 
She and her little brother share a room. 
Every morning she has to dress him, asks him what he would like for breakfast, makes his bed...she is even doing some potty training:). 
To say the least, she is a huge helper.
She has a beautiful giving spirit and I am so proud of her.
Yesterday, we celebrated with cousins, friends and Grandma.
 Because she is the only girl, Sis decided she wanted pink.

We don't tend to have "friend" parties each year, so it is extra special when we do.

Pink accents were everywhere. 

Pink pom poms.
Pink party favors.

Pink strawberry cupcakes.
Pink table lemonade:).

Rice crispy treat sandwiches with strawberry ice cream. 
They were quite popular.

Chair bows with pink tulle. 

The girls made little flowers to attach to head bands.
I had fabric circles pre-cut for them to choose from.
They layered a few, then we secured them in the center with needle and thread.

Next, the girls chose a button for the center.
I hot glued the button on, then attached it to the head band.

The weather was warm and windy.
Daisy sat on the back porch with us.

She loves the wind in her ears.
Silly pup.

And because she is a farm girl and surrounded by brothers...we had to play football...with Grandma, aka "Nannie," of course.

What a fun party to have for your little girl. I wish I could have been there making pretty things. The Rice Krispy treats with ice cream looks yummy. I will have to try doing that myself. I love your ingenuity for the chair bows!!! They are perfect, yet unique and inexpensive.
My best - Diane
