Toadstools and Tea Parties

I really enjoyed visiting all the blogs that participated in the Mad Hatter Tea Parties in June. I think we will do a Mad Hatter Tea party theme for my daughters birthday this year.
I love a theme!!! I've been drawing pictures in my journal of all the fun, games and goodies for the party. One of my favorite things to do!

I'm terribly fond of toadstools. I think it has something to do with a book from my childhood, I am a Bunny by Richard Scarry. Marmeecraft (I LOVE this blog!) shared a toadstool she made inspired by another blog madewithlovebyhannah. So here is a picture of the toadstool I made inspired by them both! I, like marmeecraft, used an oatmeal container for the stem.
Next I want to make a caterpillar to sit on top so I can use it as a prop or centerpiece for the birthday party! Thank you to both the blogs for sharing such a fun project!
