The invitations are almost ready to be posted for Sienna's Strawberry Party. Although she has already celebrated her birthday, her party will be held in a few weeks so as to coincide with a much anticipated visit from her Grammy (susieq) and Gramps, all the way from Dubai.
We "ummed" and "ahhed" over a theme for the party, deciding to stay away from all the obviously girlie ones, such as fairies and princesses, that she is sure to request when she is older. Sienna's middle name is Ruby, so having a red theme seemed appropriate, and she has just discovered strawberries are one of her favourite foods so far.
The invites were made using spotty red fabric, slightly padded with wadding and zig-zag stitched onto white card. A piece of green card cut in the shape of the stem and leaves was then stitched on top.
Now to think of some yummy food ideas and simple games for the children (mostly under 3 except for my big 'helpers').... any ideas welcome!
