Birthday Vignette

My sister celebrated her birthday this week, so I wanted to create something extra special for her.

I love to wrap gifts, but this time I decided to forgo that and display all of her loot together.

Recently we discovered the world of Peacock Park, and were immediately smitten. I wanted her birthday vignette to have that sort of feel to it.

I found many of the goodies on Etsy.

The touches of nature came from a local nursery.
The other bits and bobs I'd been saving for just the right moment.

I love it when all the details fall into place.

Ooh, and the homemade carrot cake wasn't bad either.

Aww how sweet!! Love what you did with her gift, and I wish I could have a slice of that cake!

Did you end up getting any Liberty stuff?

I think I may hobble over to Williams Sonoma to see the bunny stuff up close. I use to go there a lot with my daughter, but after she had a bad work experience one year, at Christmas time, she won't go in again. So, I don't have my little companion.
Plus I loath the people who manage it, since they were so mean to her.
Anyway, I really want to see the new Easter goodied.
