This past week I was busy as a bee getting ready for my daughters oh so sweet strawberry party that was on Saturday!  I hope you don't mind a bunch of pictures of the things I enjoyed making.  :) 

A cute little strawberry arrangement!  I love coming up with different arrangements.  :)

I up-cycled a frame and then hung a little happy birthday sign I created from a ribbon.  The other frame is of Tasha's sweet Little Miss Strawberry.

A strawberry~licious bunting!  I added some Riley Blake elastic crochet lace to the edges.  I love how it gives it a vintage delicate feel.  The best part was the elastic lace was really easy to work with.

oh so pretty!

Adorable little fabric strawberries.  Tasha had made some like these ones awhile back and thought they looked so simple and sweet.  I thought they'd make the perfect little strawberry project for the girls to sew up.   It was the first time most of them had done any sewing so it was fun to introduce them to it with a fun and simple project.   A couple of the girls made 7 of them since they were having so much fun sewing.  :)  I used this pattern and this cute strawberry ribbon.

A couple large strawberry pillows I stitched up for the party to use as decoration, and of course would be great for a couple summer pillows.  :)   I followed a lovely tutorial by The Purl Bee.  The kiddos love how soft and puffy they are!!  They are quite the novelty and have already been carried around the house lots already!  

They even look cute on my garden chair.  :)  I used Lecien's polka dot fabric an Old New 30's floral and some Moda Bella Solids in Robins Egg.

A quick little snapshot of some of the goodies.  Strawberry cake pops, cheesecake stuffed strawberries, and pretty cupcakes.

My hubby had the girls all help make homemade strawberry ice cream.   It was really yummy too!  :)

Some little goodie bags

 and cute strawberry boxes we made from this pattern.

As you can see was had a strawberry~licous time!  ;)
