Birthday party for Della

This morning, in the middle of a huge rainstorm, we went to Della's birthday party! It was a "green" party. I had never heard of, or been to one before, but it was a great idea! Instead of buying Della new gifts, everyone was supposed to bring a gently used, or re-gifted item, instead! =)

For her cake, Sarah made a Delicious "dirt cake" (that actually looked like real dirt!)

Sarah challenged me to think of some flower ideas that could be made from things on their way to the trash - it was a lot of fun!
(The flowers above are made from a glossy newspaper ad, with Sarah's cool addition of a coffee bean for the center, the middle flower is made from a Sonic cup, and the one on the right is made from a Luv's diaper box!)

Mini cake
(This flower is made from an egg carton with unpopped microwave popcorn kernels as the center)
