party fun.....

It's not every day your little girl turns 10....
So I made some sweet little brooches for the girls attending the party that looked super cute on the party boxes....
and the little girls who attended all enjoyed wearing them at the party.
Georgia and I also made these lovely tissue paper flowers together
for the centre of the table.
They were very simple to make & looked so pretty :)
all the girls got to take one home with them when they left the party.
.................................................................
the crochet flower brooches are very simple too.
I used 5ply cotton/acrylic blend.
the pattern is from this Beret pattern
(the instructions are at the very bottom of the pattern)
on the lincraft website
for the paper flowers
I found this youtube video with easy instructions

.....................................................................
back hopefully tomorrow with my block of the week ;)
have a wonderful weekend
