Every week Georgia watches the planning and conception of party after party. She always knows the name and theme of the celebrant. She is interested and she is a good sport--especially considering she has yet to have a big bash of her own. In Portuguese there is the expression: "casa de ferreiro, espeto de pau"...in the house of a blacksmith you'll find a wooden stick i.e. shoemaker's son goes barefoot. Yes, I know.
So last week, my kitchen and craft room were finally devoted to Georgia's Hello Kitty (her choice) Birthday Party. My mother and aunt stepped off the plane and into an apron. And we all worked non-stop, inviting more people than our living room could hold and feeding the children more sweets than the dentist would ever allow. And we partied. (I found a brigadeiro in the plant this morning!) Face Painting. Puppet Shows. Mini Burgers. Salgados. Sandwiches. Kiddy Music. Three cakes....oh my.
A special thanks to the unbelievably talented Alice for the charming invitation and graphic touches. (I am looking forward to more collaborations.) And of course to everyone who helped my little girl not go barefoot anymore...
