I put the invitation inside the hats....so that they would be able to wear their hat to the party. Gabby's dog ate her hat but luckily we had a spare.
There was some drama (and stomping and door slamming) an hour before the party started when Mallory got upset because her friends hadn't arrived yet. I couldn't get her to understand that they weren't supposed to be at our house yet. I swear she is 3 going on 13!
We served blueberry muffins in tulip liners that I found at Joanns, mini cherry danishes, cookies and fruit salad with greek yogurt. And an assortment of tea and I had back up juice boxes in case the kids didn't like the organic, white citrus tea. Mallory is now addicted to tea and has requested that she be served Tea and Crumpets in the drawing room.
I made birdhouse decorations for the party. I knew I wanted to mod podge them but quickly discovered that I would have to paint some of the house to make it easier on myself. Because, friend...let me tell you...cutting out those little hearts on the front will drive you to drink! I got all crazy with the roof on the yellow and green houses. If you decide to cut up 300 little squares and glue them on a birdhouse...make sure your kids are asleep first! I bought the buttons for another project and decided to add them at the last minute. I think it turned out cute. What do you think?
Yesterday we had an amazing day! We met my friend Chrisy in Salt Lake City and we had brunch at Pago. (Click here for more about the food.) It was amazing...can't wait to go back. Then we did some shopping at Hip and Humble and The Trolley Square Mall. This is my second time meeting up with Chrisy...we both love good food and last time we went to The Tin Angel.

Mallory was so funny! She kept posing on the lounge chairs in Restoration Hardware and asking me to take her picture. I think I need to get her an agent! I really liked the deepness of this leather couch until Chrisy demonstrated that I'd feel like a toddler when I sat on it!
And then we went to Target...because I weekend just isn't complete without dropping $100 bucks there.
