Maxi Dress 2

Another cute maxi dress for the grands.

Dragons and Knights

 My little man wanted a Dragon and Knight birthday all so he could get a dragon pinata and "kill it" with his sword!  So I went with it...

 We turned the canopy into a campaign tent with flags and banners.  It was so windy that I couldn't get a good picture, but it turned out really cute.

 I used Family Fun's instructions to make the dragon cake.  We lit the curly candles coming out of his mouth for the birthday wish, it looked like he was breathing fire!

I glued jewels to some plastic goblets for the royal guests, and we had "medieval" food.

The wind disrupted our place settings too.  I put silver paper plates and silver plastic utensils with napkins tucked into the goblets.  We had some toy dragons and knight cutouts on the table.  Each guest got a bag with glow in the dark sword and knight stickers inside.  There was also a dragon pez dispenser (it was really the dinosaur from toy story but it was my older son's idea to call it a dragon).

Princess Dinner

My little girl wanted a princess party this year - which was funny since we just had a dragons and knights party for her brother!  I decided to do just a small dinner for our little family and invited my parents to come along (my mom loves birthdays!).
The block castle I had ordered through Groupon for her brother's party, arrived just in time for her party!  It was the perfect center piece to our food table.  I found cute little princess castle food picks at Zurchers along with plates and napkins.

But my favorite thing was the cake!  I finally made a cake that worked, with stiff perfect (well good enough for me to call perfect) frosting, that turned out how I imagined it!

I used this lemon cake recipe from Good Things Utah - delish!

And this frosting recipe - with my mom's help to get the right consistency.

I used this color chart to get the right pink color - which totally rocked!

This tutorial for the roses...sweet!


Baby Quilt

I used Ruby by Camille Roskelly for the squares in this quilt top.. The young lady I

made it for chose the borders and the white fabric. I just love this pattern.

It works up quickly and is cute.
