It seems like yesterday that I started participating in Beverly's PINK SATURDAY(here) and then in an instant we were celebrating the first birthday (here) of this wonderful weekly event. Now, we're gathering to honor the 2nd Birthday of Pink Saturday.
This time, I have been so busy, that I needed help to pull off the party I believe our hostess deserves. . . so I asked THE STONE RABBIT for help.
Actually. . . .I left all of the details up to him.
THE STONE RABBIT must have been an event planner in a former life. The moment I handed him the job of planning the Pink Saturday Birthday Party, he set out to make it a fun and memorable event.
I didn't ask any questions. . . he was in charge of the whole kit and caboodle....from the guest list to the food and activities! I just told him there had to be a whole lot of PINK involved!
The first thing THE STONE RABBIT did was figure out who he wanted to invite and from that guest list, he had already created the party theme!
He loved that I recently took cake decorating lessons. In fact, he would study my student book and practice with my left over frostings from each class.
I think that practice paid off because he started with the dessert for the Pink Party!
First, he baked the cupcakes, then he put a layer of green frosting on each one, followed by a layer of "grass-like" frosting!
After he put a little swirl of PINK frosting on the backs of each one for a tail, he placed them on the "grass" !!
I believe I told you that his guest list determined the "theme" of our PINK Saturday Birthday Party. I didn't know who he had invited until I heard the grunting and squealing sounds coming from the front yard.
Then, I knew exactly who would be coming to the party.
That rabbit had invited the PIGS from down the street!!!
The PIGS are always welcome, but this time, they were ALL coming. When such a large number of those little PINK porkers pay a visit at once. . . well, things can get a little hog wild!
told them he had some activities for them on the front lawn, then they would head to the back patio for the rest of the party!!!
While THE STONE RABBIT sent the PIGS out into the yard. . .
I started setting up the table for the dessert!!! Besides the PIG cakes, THE STONE RABBIT had fixed some Kool - Aid!!
THE STONE RABBIT had planned a little game called Pin the Tail on the Piggy, but his guests wanted something with a little more action.
The first thing those PIGS did was to climb the tree in the front yard and then. . . .
they started JUMPING out of the tree. . . one. . .
after one. . . .
each trying to hit the . . .
bucket they had positioned beneath the tree!!!!
That's when THE STONE RABBIT told the rest of them to get out of the tree . . . he had a safer activity in mind!
He quickly organized a little PIGGYBACK relay. He's so smart. . . he knows how much PIGS love to race!
pool to cool off! While some of the PIGS were having a ball enjoying the fun in the water, some preferred to. . . .
to lay out in the sun !!!
THE STONE RABBIT told them that he wanted everyone to write a little note that expressed their feelings about PINK or PINK SATURDAY!!!!
They quickly set about to do just that!
Those PIGS shared such sweet thoughts about PINKS and PINK SATURDAY!!!
Just then, I realized they weren't always just a bunch of wild hogs. . . they did have their sensitive moments, too.
It took THE STONE RABBIT and I quite a while to clean them up. . .
and after we did. . . we saw how happy they looked!
all of the PINK SATURDAY participants!!!!!
Then the PIGS went back home because it was time for them to. . .
to visit Beverly's at HOW SWEET THE SOUND, and start checking out all of the other parties and celebrations that are honoring this special milestone!!!
A very special thank you to Beverly for all of the hours she spends making certain PINK SATURDAY happens for us each and every week!!
