Once upon a time......


Don't tell Michelle yet.

(and Michelle if this is you don't peek until you get your box!)

It's time for a party and with the help of Artsymama it has become much easier to plan for.

Kari organized a Vintage party themed swap.

My partner was Michelle at Life On this good day.

I was just so excited about sharing all the fun stuff I just sent off, I had to show it to you.

I found this adorable story,

Molly & Mimi the mouse twins

By Anne-Marie Dalmais, Illustrated by Annie Bonhomm.

I had never seen it before but it is now one of my favorites.

I used it as my theme for her Springtime/ Fairytale party.

Everything came together so perfectly.

A set of 8 peach colored carnival glass goblets, an ecru apron with a rose , a lace tablecloth, spring colored garlands, millinery flowers, ribbons and bows.

I pulled it out and shared my findings to all my friends and family who all graciously appeased me with smiles as I showed them.

My friend Josie even showed up with cookies she made and decorated to match the theme!

I made for her what every respectable hostess at a fairytale party needs ...............

A Crown !

So Michelle I hope you have a fun party!

I would have also sent you the fairy godmother to help you clean up your party..............

but she's going to be busy cleaning up mine!

What an imaginative creation for your party swap. I saw this swap on Artsy Mama's blog a while back, but it seemed a bit too challenging for me. You succeeded in making it look effortless, but I know it wasn't I am sure your partner will be thrilled at your gorgeous party theme. Karen
