"It is going to be a great PAH-TEE!"
Do you have a friend that you can speak almost entirely in movie quotes and song lyrics? My girl, Vanessa, and I absolutely LOVE the movie Steel Magnolias and we always try to interject one line from the movie in every convo we have. She lives in Canada and me in Florida so birthdays are celebrated virtually. This year I decided to let her have a Steel Magnolias inspired birthday. Complete with her favorite Southern Belles.
I made cupcake picks and cupcake wrappers for her.
The cupcake picks feature the pictures of our favorite Southern Belles, I printed them out on cardstock, and glued them to pink construction paper (after all, pink is Shelby's signature color)
Then on Microsoft Publisher I designed the cupcake wrappers to feature armadillos (a la Jackson's groom cake)
I was going to include a box of red velvet cake mix and a can of white icing with a tube of black icing to mix together to make grey icing but I wasn't sure about regulations of mailing food to our neighbors to the north. She'll have to supply that herself
Cost for the project (no receipt)
Construction paper: $1
Bamboo skewers: $1
Not too shabby
While this may not be her most practical gift, I sure hope it's her funniest
