bee turns four!

Our little girl turned four a few weeks ago and we wanted to throw a party to celebrate! Bee decided all on her own that she wanted a "flower party", and I quickly remembered this story we did at Martha Stewart Kids about making flowers out of tissue.

Pretty soon we had enough flowers to deliver to Bee's little playgroup and preschool friends, with a paper leaf that told them everything they needed to know. Instead of mailing these, I like going door to door with the kids and having them deliver their invitations themselves. Bee had a lot of fun running around with her paper bouquet.

Party details to follow.

love your flowers, as a pre-k teacher we have a "special friend's tea" in may and we make tissue paper flowers and put them in clear glass containers ( some of them are jars) and we put coordinating easter grass in the containers and it looks so festive!

Those are so sweet! Were they very time-consuming? Can't wait to see the upcoming festivities, how I love parties and all the fun details!

Love looking at your site. What a sweet party. I will definitely be borrowing many ideas. Loved the book you made for your grandmother's 90th birthday!

What fun! The pinata is stunning, and I DO remember the balloon-tied-to-the-ankle game : )

My Mom would also have us run from one end of the yard to the other with the balloon between our ankles. Perhaps a feeble attempt to burn off some of the cake sugar...

Thanks so much for sharing; everything is just lovely and inspiring (and happy birthday to your daughter!)
