The good things,that's what this party is all about.Who doesn't know who Laura Ingalls is?The nice little girl living in the prairie has been a good companion for lots of mums in their 30s now.And although we may like Hannah Montana and friends,sometimes we may have the impression that they are a little bit too groomed and fancy to be the only role models for our children.
So,at least for one day,why don't teach our girls to do something with their hands and enjoy themselves with old-fashioned games and simply things?
This Pioneer Party is taking place at a barn,where there is the chance to ride a wagon too.Bunting in printed cotton is welcoming the young guests.
Girlie-girl calligraphed invitations are made with love.
Bonnets and aprons are waiting to be worn.
The table setting is simple and fresh,as it would have been at the Ingalls' house.Mason jars are vases for wild flowers.
As etiquette was important 2 centuries ago,still should be now.Each young lady has her own calligraphed place card .
The cake has a warm homemade feeling.
During the day,one of the several activities is cooking!Bread loafs and jam to bring home as keepsakes.
Working with hands in butter and flour is much fun!
A good favor idea could be to purchase dolls clothing.Check on Etsy.com
The bread loafs are ready to be baked in the oven.
While bread is baking,the girls are playing with simple,traditional games.
Favors included candy bags with a nice cotton ribbon and personalized tags.
And jam jars ready to be taken home,along with sweet memories of the beautiful day!
