Sweet Springtime Play Date in Gloomy Weather!

This has been the gloomiest April that we can remember. It seems like it has rained almost every day this month! We are longing for the warm sunshine and blooming flowers and the little ones running around outside squealing with joy!
We really wanted to have a little springtime playdate for two of our really special friends and their little girls. We, of course, were hoping that they could do an egg hunt outside and play in the warm sun. But, it was raining so unfortunately we had to hold our "springtime" play date inside.
Before everyone came over we set up a mini sweet table for the girls to sit around and have lunch at. My twins were so excited to help hang the "spring"
letter garland we made above the table and decorate it with crepe paper flowers and butterflies. We wanted the table to be dainty and sweet. We made little chocolate dipped marshmallows with pastel sprinkles and a little pink ribbon flags on the sticks, chocolate dipped oreos with a little cherry blossom piped on top, cupcakes with cherry blossoms and pink sugared butterfly cookies. We set the table with little pink plates and napkins wrapped with ribbon and flowers. The girls reluctantly ate lunch while they stared at all of the treats that were awaiting them. After they played a few games of hide n go seek, we let them decorate bunny cookies, with tinted butter cream frostings and spring sprinkles. The girls were giddy with excitment! We did a little indoor egg hunt with them, and each little girl had to find a special chicky egg! The girls all got to bring home a sweet little pink and white polka dot bag filled with treats. Our lovely friend Katie, even made the girls the most adorable bunny bags filled with playdough! We are pretty sure the girls had a fun filled day, it was so much fun to watch them play and get so giddy over all of the sweets that they got to eat!
