Mama's birthday this week.
It all started with some napkins. Hot pink with big white polka dots. I reached for them while rushing through Target the other day.
Laura Numeroff book, my life suddenly went into chain-reaction party planning motion. (If you don't know who Laura Numeroff is, this post is going to make me seem like a weirdo. Just roll with it. Mkay?)
zebra printed paper plates to go with them.
so cute that she'll start thinking about how they will look on the table.
fuschia paper for some simple and easy place mats. An idea will begin to form, and she'll draw the outline of silverware onto them with her white gel pen.
dessert, since dinner is already decided, (eating this) which will drive her into the kitchen, hunting for good ideas.
meringues dipped in pink candy coating.
Once that's done, she'll put the remainder into the cupboard, knocking over a small canister of gray sprinkles.
Salted Chocolate Chip cookies? (Mmmmm....)
rolling them in sprinkles is the best idea ever.
sandwiching ice cream between cookies and rolling them in sprinkles, but afterward, her counter top will be a smeary mess.
As she pauses to think, she'll look out the window and see that a freak snowstorm is hitting her backyard. This will remind her that spring isn't here yet, and thinking about spring will undoubtedly make her wish for some bright pink tulips.
polka dotted napkins she just bought, so she'll stand back and admire her pretty table top, snapping many pictures for her beloved blog readers to enjoy.
The End. (Cause Mama's are special and they deserve to be celebrated, don't you think?)
