Five friends and a trip to the circus. To watch the eyes on these girls (and my boys) widen was so satisfying.
A short walk to the car as they all shared their favorite part. Of course Libby's was the elephants.
Back home for cake and ice cream. Martha Stewart's tissue paper pom-poms decorated the dining room.
I usually always make a cake, but this year purchased one from our favorite bakery. Something about the time spent at the sewing machine gave me little time to bake a cake. That's o.k., this was beautiful and delicious.
And party favors? Bags of course. "Library totes" as Libby calls them. Done in circus fabric I purchased from the fabric shack.
