My baby turned 8! This is a huge milestone for us. So in honor of her big day we threw a party for a few family and friends. Though I would have liked to do more, money was tight, so we made do where necessary. For instance, the lace table clothes were actually plastic. I used a few of my own vintage table clothes over the top of the plastic ones to dress it up a little. My friend d helped me make banners and swags out of paper with her excellent scrapbooking skills. I used my great-grandmother’s depression glass and my sister found the cutest paper plates that I couldn’t get in the USA but she could get in Canada. My daughter was delighted that it was all desserts. I think that even though it was simple it was also very sweet.
