It is all about A May Day Tea...

The month of May is a perfect time to celebrate
and I could not think of a better way
than to have a spot of tea.
And while we are at it,

let’s make it a pink party.
Perfect for May Day,
Mother’s Day, Birthdays or just because
I feel like a Tea day….

Make your guest feel special by wrapping
each invitation in a pretty paper doily.
Idea from Martha Stewart .

A Pink Buds Fashionista Bracelet would be
a lovely party favor
Or party craft…

I just read Lanie's Real Adventure

that it would be fun to have

Try doing this in a smaller
size for  Lanie
(the American girl doll of the year)
or for any favorite doll.

Here is a pretty butterfly mobile made
from a few simple supplies.
This fun idea is from
Better Homes and Gardens....
