Day-Before-the-Party Preparations

Just a peek at what's going on over here today... Twenty-four hours 'til the big tea party! Miss Raychie is very excited! Aunt Laura is here and she took the girls outside to play around with the camera. We're busy but we're having fun. Frankly, I'm in my element when I'm planning a fun little girly-sweet party like this one! Flowers, ribbons and tuling for decorating straw hats at the party tomorrow. These roses are from Wal Mart, Sweets...aren't they great? The little wooden flower pots are from Cost Plus World Market and you can see the pink party favor bags not quite finished.We're going to decorate the dolls' hats later today and I've got all my pretty trims and tiny flowers standing ready.
A sweet tea set for the dolls' table...this is actually one I have had since I was a little girl and I carefully packed it away for my own daughter(s) years ago and JUST found it in a box when we moved in!
And lest you think everything is pretty and pink around here, Mr. Mud Monster will tell you otherwise!!! My sweet mama came over with flowers to plant around the front door and of course Andrew wanted to dig, too....

Well that's it for now! Back to work I go...
