Pink Saturday & Happy Birthday Jen

Hello and welcome to Pink Saturday hosted by Beverly of How Sweet The Sound. Please stop by and see Beverly to get a list of the other participants.
My daughter Jen of Jen's Petal Palace just celebrated her birthday on Jan. 11th and since we had a pink party I thought I would share those pictures with you this week.
Here's Jen in her pink nursery, she was about 4 months old here. We had her nursery all done up in yellow, then when I had a girl I told my husband we had to paint the nursery over again in pink. He was not to happy but finally got it done. LOL
Jen was the only granddaughter on both sides so everyone gave her pink and ruffles. My Mother in law was so happy that I had a girl that she came into the hospital with a whole box of new clothes for Jen, guess what color everything was? Pink of course with ruffles and frills!


Here's Jen and I about 5 days home from the hospital. I was visiting my parents and my Dad took this pic.


Here's Jen and I before her nursery got painted pink. I think she was only a week or two old here.

Here's Jen 37 years later. Happy Birthday Jen. I love you!!!!!

We had a nice little dinner party with the family. The next few pics are of Jen opening her gifts.


My cat Bentley had to watch Jen open her gifts. LOL



I made her one of my fabric cake boxes and filled it with vintage scraps.

A cupcake lavender sachet, Jen makes faux pasteries so this fabric was perfect for her.

A fabric Victorian Cracker filled with lavender.
A pretty little cake tablecloth to show off her faux pasteries.
Jen's doing her kitchen over in a aqua and red retro look so I make her some silk ribbon embroidered lolli's.



We had a wonderful pink birthday party this week, thank you so much for stopping by and sharing it with us.
Bless You, Shirl

Great pictures Shirley! Happy Birthday to your daughter! Loved looking at all the pictures. Those kitties have to be included! I clicked on your pictures to see all your beautiful pretties in your home. I always notice your bullseye trim. How old is your home? I have always felt I was supposed to live in an old victorian cottage....maybe someday.
