Our "theme" was A Royal Garden Tea.
We ate fancy, traditional tea finger-sandwiches (cucumber, honey-walnut, and ham-roll-ups), homemade blueberry muffins and cheddar muffins, crudite tray, deviled eggs (String Bean's favorite!), and a hot-tea punch (served in the tea cups, of course). No birthday around here would be complete without a chocolate cake of some kind: String Bean asked for the old Betty Crocker "chocolate joy cake" with chocolate fudge frosting!
Wow, what an afternoon. But String Bean is such a blessing to so many ... every bit of work and worry was worth it!
God bless you, String Bean. Happy 11th and may you have many, many more such glorious (but not so rainy) days!
