As promised here is the rest of our peep party. Feel free to turn on Shaggy's Angel again to set the mood. It really is a fun song. We listened to it a couple of times throughout the day.
here. There I showed you our peep garland, the beautiful cake, our lovely cookies, and the candy jars.
Of course, no peep party is complete with a lot of peeps. Who knew they were so photogenic.
Now for a part that I've very proud of; the egg candles. This wasn't an Easter party, but the eggs went with our colour scheme and the discount candy we had on the table.
I didn't have any vinegar so I used lemon juice, water, and food colouring. I really thought it was neat how the purple turned out a little specked because I mixed red and blue.
I poured in the wax and I had egg shell candles. If I were to do it again I would buy my own wicks. They sort of toppled over when I poured in the wax and weren't centered anymore. When we lit them the shells started to burn and smell like rotten egg. But they were very pretty unlit.
Last week I had mentioned that I made some hair bows for my niece. These were in a basket with some bunnies I made from here. She loves to have stuff off the grown-up table, so this way she could have something from the table.
Next weekend we are celebrating our grandparents' 12.5th wedding anniversary. In Dutch tradition this is a big anniversary because it is half of 25. It is so inspiring to have so many people in my life with strong marriages. I love to be able to celebrate with my family.
Just wanted to let you know that we will be participating in a
Trading Blogs Party! There is still time to sign up so head over to
Serendipity and Spice.
