I'm a devoted ACME customer. I realize that sounds a bit obvious, but it's true. Over the last 5 years, my family has grown accustomed to all of the amazing food that comes in our ACME boxes, and I have become hooked on the convenience that ordering a weekly Locavore or Ready Made Box affords me.
Instead of spending time grocery shopping and meal planning, I can take some time to work on fun projects - like throwing birthday parties!
This year Etta (who is very into hedgehogs and foxes!) requested a 'Woodland Tea Party' for her 7th birthday. I was, of course, more than happy to make it happen!
At tea time we set the table with my great-aunt's vintage LuRay Pastels plates and tea cups. Etta stamped Moleskine Notebooks with foxes, hedgehogs and her friends' names then tied twig pencils to each.
The girls feasted on Tea Sandwiches [Smoked Salmon + Fromage Blanc, Turkey + Cranberry Pinwheels and of course PB+J] along with Cream Scones, Jam and loads of Fresh, Local Berries with Whipped Cream. They sipped Berry Rooibos Tea and Pink Lemonade.
For dessert we made adorable Hedgehog Cookies and decorated Fox Sugar Cookies. Etta blew out candles on a petite Jam-Filled Cake with Vanilla Cream Cheese Frosting.
And this is what it's all about - sheer joy from my sweet 7 year old. Happy Birthday Etta!
