Lucky 7 Birthday Party

Sheridan just adores animals so we celebrated her 7th birthday by taking a few friends horseback riding. The girls handled their horses very well and loved it! I decorated the picnic area with horse ribbon chandeliers that I made with styrofoam rings and ribbon. I bought the pink and purple flowers from the flower mart in LA and arranged them in silver trophy cups and silver mint julep cups. We had a catered lunch from Stonefire Grill and had cupcakes that I made. I also made the chocolate horse heads that were on top of them. A bit time consuming since I had just the one mold! We played a sugar cube stacking contest and stuffed horses to take home. Everyone got to take home a decorated horse shoe to hang in their room.

Mad Hatter Tea Party

Brownie Troop 118 went to a Mad Hatter Tea Party hosted by Junior Troop 111. They got to decorate Mad Hatter hats, eat butterfly sandwiches (half cheese, half jelly), chocolate chip cookies and fancy cupcakes. The Queen of Hearts presided over the event and no one lost their head!
