T Stands for Birthdays!!!

Iced tea started for the party
Here it is Tuesday once again, cannot believe how fast this spring is just slipping away.  Do you feel summer bearing down on you too? 
Well Tuesday means it is time to link up with Elizabeth, the Altered Book Lover and join the T-gang for a thirsty hop around the world.
Saturday was our GD, Megan's, 5th birthday.

The night before the birthday party Megan's Aunt Virginia and I made this center piece.  They are supposed to be, or represent bottles of fingernail polish.  They are frosted marshmallows ( more sugar on top of sugar) with a tootsi rolls for the tops of the bottles.......LOL what a riot these were to make, and it wasn't long and the two 8 year olds were helping.  Lord keep us off of Pinterest!!!!!!
The birthday party was great, even though it really got hot that day.  Lucky there was a pool to cool the guest down after all the festivities. 
The theme ( yes they have themed birthday parties now) was a "spa and paint" party.  Since we had four teenage girls we set them to work painting toes and fingernails of all the "little" guests.
Amber gets the honor of painting the birthday girls clean toes

Megan also shares her birthday with her Uncle Kenny.  A few years ago we had talked about how we skip the buying gifts for the adult birthdays, but should have some kind of gag gift.  I finally got out the little trophy I bought....just for this... and tackied it up with stickers and nonsense, wrapped it up.....along with a card that has the instructions written on it.......and gave it to Ken.
 He has to sign the card, place it in the tacky trophy and display it until the next adult's birthday, which unfortunately is mine and I will have to display it till August.......LOL and so starts a new family tradition.......all in the fun of growing older

So in good cheer, Ken poured his adult beverage into the tacky trophy, and drank as we sang Happy Birthday to him..........What a good sport!!

I am still working on bottle tags, they seem to be everywhere...LOL  But I have sold a few to some close friends, so I am feeling a little more confident about selling them to the public.
Here are a couple of cards I also have finished, and hopefully sell at the street fair......maybe in June.  We missed the "First Friday" this month because of Megan's birthday, but that gives me a little more time to prepare.

These cards still need to finished on the inside.  There is one more, but it is taking blogger a LOOONNNGGG time to upload, and I can hardly keeps my eyes you've been let off the hook from seeing MORE pictures......LOL
What's in your cup this week?
Has anybody else experienced disappearing captions under the pictures once you post?????

  1. What a fantasic party! Thank you for sharing the photos Krisha!
    Happy T-Day!

  2. Oh Krisha, what a fun party that must have been. The centerpiece was adorable, and the theme seemed perfect for a five year old. Great job.

    Seems like your son was not only a good sport, but had fun with the trophy, too. And that trophy was looked good instead of tacky!

    Thanks for sharing Megan's birthday and your tacky trophy with us for T this Tuesday.

    I've never used captions under my photos, so can't help you there. But I have noticed my photos take forever to make it onto blogger.

  3. Marshmallow fingernail polish and Tacky Trophies? Your family has too much FUN!

    I really like your bottle tags and cards, get them out there for the public!


  4. What a fabulous fun post! Love those nail varnish pots!! I know a certain little girl who would love them!!!
    Great idea for the "tacky" trophy - which actually looks quite presentable! Happy T day! Chrisx

  5. Love the nail polish marshmallows ♥♥♥♥ Looks like everyone had a gran ole time :) Thanks for sharing.

  6. Those nail polish marshmallows are too cute!!
    Love the tacky trophy idea!!! I may have to borrow that idea! Esp. since my MIL b-day is 6 days after mine..I certainly wouldn't have the trophy long. ;)
    Happy T day!

  7. Krisha,

    Divers and Sundry is still having a problem with your blog. Please see her comment on my blog which might help, since I have no idea how to correct the problem.

  8. Wow!Krisha that centerpiece is fabulbous. What a rocking party for little Megan! Your tags look simply awesome.
    Have a wonderful week

  9. what a FUN and creative centerpiece-wow!!! Looks like everyone had a great time. I love the idea of passing around a tacky gift each birthday:):) Your cards are so fun and the wine bottle tags are all gorgeous. I've never had a caption disappear so not sure what's up with that. Hope you get it solved. Happy T day!

  10. LOVE those cakes. How fun! They would work for older girls1 too!
    Love the tacky cup present too.
    Gotta love Pinterest.

  11. I've never put captions under the pictures...just regular writing. But blogger has been acting up for some time with ever new and delightful glitches. ;)

    Those "polish bottles" are fantastic! Looks like the girls had a wonderful time at the spa birthday party. What a fun new tradition with the trophy, too.

    Good luck with the sales when you go. I think your wine bottle tags are such a terrific idea. Very belated happy T-Day! ;)

  12. Love the cards and the cakes!What a great party huh!
