Taking a week off to host a Tea Party!

I'm taking the next week off...but before I get into that, I wanted to show you how pretty my tulips still look one week later. I wish I could make them last just like this.
Next Saturday my kids school is having a fundraiser that I'm in charge of. This is my second year running it. It's called a Doll's Tea Party. Every year we pick a different "location" to have it. Last year it fell on St. Patty's Day so the theme was a Doll's Tea Party in Ireland. In the past when others ran it they did Hawaii, Paris, & China. This year I decided to keep it local and do a day in 
The Big Apple!
It takes months of planning. There's the invitations, decorations, food for both the kids and a cafe for the adults, activities, vendors, even a raffle table with beautiful prizes like American Girl Doll's and accessories. It's a lot of fun...I love doing it!
It's going to be a crazy week getting all the last minute things done, so I won't be posting this week...but I'll definitely need my fix of you guys so I'll be checking in when I have a chance:)
Have a great week!
