Everyone deserves some recognition of their birthday by family and friends. We have the extended family (in our case, all our blended kids and grandkids) over monthly for a meal and just to hang out and talk about what’s happening in our lives. It also is a time to recognize Birthdays!
We used to do tiara’s on the girls, and still do sometimes, but getting something going for the guys was more difficult. I tried a crown, but that was more of a humiliation than a reward.
So after some thought, I came up with Birthday Placemats. I have worked this past week and got 3 done – because we had 3 birthdays in February! The first is the “Happy” one above. Definitely a lot of piecing, but what fun! Secondly is this one below, three cupcakes.
And the third one is this giant cake:
Until then, here are some of the details of the completed placemats.
