Hello friends! Thanks so much for all of the sweet birthday wishes! After writing that last post I quickly started feeling yucky, nauseated, and I got chills and fever. I spent the rest of the day on the couch wining about how I wanted a do-over! LOL! And on Friday I got my do-over, complete with a surprise party at Martha's house (my mother-in-law). It was a lot of fun, they decorated it in all black and I had a very yummy tombstone cake with "R.I.P" written on it. My Father-in-law said he even tried to catch a crow for me, it may be best that didn't work out!
On Sunday we celebrated my sweet sister-in-law, Cristina's, baby tea. Martha and I were in charge of decorating and we had a really good time with this theme. We went with frogs because Cristina had registered for this super cute frog baby bedding, so we knew she would like it.
We made the frogs from a free pattern HERE, and we cut down *most* of the cattails from my neighbors front yard, with permission (Thanks Mary!). I cut the lily pads out of wool felt. If you want the pattern let me know I will scan it in for you.
In the past I have found it so hard to decorate for boy baby teas, but I really think this one was a hit! Cristina really seemed to like it and Martha and I couldn't get over how cute it was when it all came together, all of the guests seemed to love it too.
My sis, Rae, made this little frog cake for her! Is that the cutest or what?! She put little individual frogs and lily pads on every piece, and it tasted wonderful too.
Our friend Beth made this diaper cake and it made a really sweet centerpiece for the gift table.
P.S. I didn't have any time for pictures after the tea started, so I didn't get one of Cristina. I will post a picture of the little mama as soon as I can beg one off of one of the other hostesses.
