It has been anti climactic after the Birthday weekend…there is nothing to plan, sew and bake!

I am sure I will think of something soon. But, as of now NOTHING!

So a run down on the birthday theme.

A month back I came across the fact that this year is the 40th anniversary of Eric Carle’s “The Very Hungry Caterpillar“. Incidentally, it is also falls in “my most favourite book” (says Scooby)… and hence THE theme for the Birthday.

So Scooby & I made the invites with a caterpillar, a fruit (a strawberry or an apple) and the blazing sun.

The invite reads-

Dear So,

It is “The Very Hungry Caterpillar’s” 40th B’day this year and my 4th. I would like to invite you to a small party that I am having at home with all my friends.

Date:,Time: & Venue:

Love

Scooby

We made some caterpillar badges to welcome our little friends and for them to wear at the party.

and a standby spring top with “shiny” butterfly print for “just in case”. And to feed the sewing monster in me.
