Last evening, we gathered around the kitchen table, to celebrate a special birthday.
Seven years old, is a happening worthy of celebration.
Centerpiece...a few bunches of faux flowers that I found at Michael's Store, 50% off.
I put pink tissue into a glass candy dish, added the flowers, and two pinwheels.
Pastel colored flower light strand...the Dollar General. Pink frame...dollar bins
at Michael's. Birthday banner...from the laundry cupboard and has been used over
and over again.
Tiny lip gloss ice cream parfaits for the little girls.
A simple, fun celebration, which was most special because of time spent together.
After a hot, busy day, the youngest of the family, had trouble staying awake for the dinner.
Two packs of colorful disposable cups from Michael's, served as the flower pots.
Bottom layer, brownie crumbs. Next layer...softened vanilla ice cream. I cut straws into
pieces and placed a piece into the layer of ice cream and crumbs. Top layer...crushed
Oreo cookies. Cut a flower and leaf stem from clump of flowers, and placed down
through the straw. Butterflies were from a sheet of stickers, and stuck onto the side
of each cup.
I made these little flower pots ahead of time and placed, covered in the freezer,
on a big white tray.
I removed them a few minutes ahead of serving time, and then added a few
birthday candles to the pots.
Ice cream would be her choice of desserts, and so this version of a cake worked for
her. What a blessing her life is to all of us.
Thank you for stopping by today.
