My mother is super talented and creative, and that gene skipped me! Thankfully, my girls seem to inherited both my mother's and Jimmy's mother creative genes.
My mother's latest interest is creating tablescapes. I had no idea what that was, and you can google it too if you need to. Apparently, it is taking a fun theme for a party or dinner......and running with it! My mother began collecting Alice in Wonderland items for her tablescape, and we all decided to give Julie an Unbirthday party to utilize my mother's talents.
My mother boxed up many, many boxes full of party supplies! She and my daddy hardly had room to ride in their vehicle!
While Mims, Olivia, and Julie unpacked and decorated both my kitchen and my dining room, I prepared the tea party food--four different little sandwiches, fruit kabobs, chocolate dipped pretzel rods, and Julie made cupcakes.

My mother made Julie this Alice in Wonderland dress.

Pops, Mims, and I served the guests.
I also sat down for a little bit with the mothers in the dining room.

Mims worked so hard at creating such special memories for Julie and her friends! We are all so appreciative! It was such a beautiful and fun party. A special 16th birthday party for a special 16 year old girl!
