I think it's nicer than I would have created! Fun colors and embroidery. Not the mention the time saved!
The crowns the girls made at school. The birthday celebration is very limited at their school and I think that stinks! No treats...nothing! I always looked forward to handing my treats out to my friends on my birthday. I remember feeling so special. What a bummer!
Large cake and cupcake candle from PartyLite. I even have the "birthday cake" scented votives...I just always for get to light them!
After the kids are in bed on the night of their birthday, I always sit down and write a letter to them. It usually talks about what they have accomplished this year, my hopes for the future and just gushing about how much I love them. I have all the letters saved in a box for them to open later...maybe their 18th birthday. That remains to be seen. I'm sure about the timing yet.
OH-the girls loved their butterflies!
