beret. beret. beret.

WonderGirl's birthday party is tonight.  I'm only freaking out a lot.  It'll be fine, right??  It's super easy - an art theme, so the kids are wearing smocks, creating their own pizzas (picky eaters?  Food allergies?  no problem!), painting sugar cookies with food coloring instead of having a cake, and it's only an hour and a half.  Easy, right??

Except it's ME throwing it, so I had to complicate matters and add this to the mix:


Remember the "everyone should wear a beret to look all authentic!!" idea?  This is the result.  I (of course) took it a few steps further and decided to have them decorate the berets for an activity.  This is the prototype.



No one tell the girls what a shower cap is, okay?  Let's keep the magic alive.


I'm trying to convince myself this isn't a total fail idea.  So I took a ton of pictures.



If I add a paintbrush to the mix, does it start to even resemble a beret?



Sigh...


My own personal birthday is on Sunday.  This is what I've become at 31.  Poor 32, it doesn't even have a chance.

You just have to tilt it sideways a bit and it totally works!! I think it's a fabulous idea, having them decorate them.

What happened to the other color? I think darker looks better for berets. The mimes always wear a black one don't they?
