lily's arts and crafts birthday

we celebrated lily's 8th birthday party with a simple "arts and crafts" theme this year.

lily helped me make the invitations.  since it was an arts and crafts party, i wanted the invitations to be all handmade.  we didn't want the traditional "roygbiv" color scheme so we chose pink, orange and green.  we stamped little muslin bags and then made a cute flag banner with all the party details to go inside the bag.  we then finished off the envelope with some cute washi tape.

when the guests arrived they started on their first craft: painting wooden necklaces
the necklaces were finished with a neon pink cord (sorry no photo)

the second craft and my absolute fave!!!: fork dolls
i think i had more fun making these than the girls!

aren't they just sweet?

we then moved onto floral monograms

and the last craft was edible!  
the girls created their own masterpieces with edible markers on iced sugar cookies

happy birthday lily!
