  26. She's SO adorable! You did a spectacular job with the decorating and refreshments.

    I noticed a vintage aluminum ice bucket and a tray in the pictures. Do you collect aluminum pieces as well as depression glass? I'll have to check out some of your older posts to see more of your Block collection.

    Hope your weekend goes well.


  27. Lovely party for a lovely girl! Your decorations and table accessories must have added lots to a fun event. I really like the idea of having all those helium balloons up high with the ribbons hanging down.


  28. Julie, please wish little Eleanor a "Happy Birthday" for us all? She is an the pearl necklace on her!!!
    Great food items for the party, too. I'm GREEN with envy over your green depression glass. I hope to show you mine next year on St. Patrick's Day.
