Tea Party!

I've been a part of a Bunco group for several years now and we just recently started doing themed games. This was my first time hosting since we introduced themes so I was super excited to come up with a theme. A few months before it was even my turn to host, I decided I wanted to do a tea party themed one. How many times does one get to go to a tea party? Not very often.
  For the menu, I tried my best to accommodate a soy-free and gluten-free diet. I wanted to keep it semi-tea party-ish so I opted for a chicken salad wreath, fruit, cupcake bites (courtesy of the brilliant Bakerella), strawberry lemonade, and an assortment of teas. Thank goodness I have a large hot water heater that keeps hot water on hand, because I was able to set out an assortment of tea bags and everyone was able to pick and choose their own teas. I was unaware of how many people were fans of tea, so it was really cool to see everyone really embracing the tea party. The hot water heater was empty at the end of the night so that was a good indication that my tea party was a success.

Easter Knot Apron Dress

Last Saturday, we had our very first Easter egg hunt. It was very last minute since we found out about it on Friday. I had no idea that Easter was only a week away. I've had this cute Easter bunny fabric for a couple weeks that I wanted to use for Isabelle's Easter dress so I figured that I had better make her the dress for the egg hunt so she could get a couple of weekends to wear it.
