Name: Charlotte, 7
My daughter's heart belongs to another era and so it was perfectly fitting to celebrate her 7th birthday with a modern spin on a pioneer party.
When I envisioned décor for the party, the elements that came to mind were calico fabrics, flowers, twine, hay bales, burlap & baskets. Anything pretty & rustic seemed appropriate.
My daughter was so eager to help with the details for this party and she worked hard on creating a scrap fabric bunting for the fence post and stitching an initial onto a little hankie for each of her guests.
The dessert table featured a variety of pies and guests spent the afternoon making yarn dolls, whirligigs, raspberry jam, and lavender sachets.
I made drawstring pouches for the favors which included candies that Laura might have found at Mr. Olson's store, buttons to start a collection, and twig colored pencils.
After devouring all of the Little House books together over the past 2 years, this party was the perfect collaboration and celebration of a sweet seven year old.
