Today is a milestone over at Plot This. SF has hit the BIG ONE!!!!!!!!!!! And to begin the celebration (which is lasting a full week) I am having a tea party for her this morning at my house.

For this special event, we (her writing group) are recreating her picture book, TEA PARTY.

It's a Burton-esque masterpiece for a budding little goth girl.

Many pics and commentary will arrive shortly. This is the table. Notice the melted candles, stuffed squirrel, cobwebs and bugs! Not to mention the eleven dead roses hanging upside down from the chandelier. She is gonna freak!

HAPPY BIG ONE SF!!!!!!!!! I love ya!
This is me with black goth dripping from my eyes. Gotta go get ready! More pics to come!!!

Katie, I want you to come to Vegas for my next birthday! I love the themed party! How thoughtful and creative.

Lisa and Laura said...

Happy Birthday SF! You are SO hot for 40. Absolutely fabulous.

And Katie, is that your pet squirrel? Whatever happened to him anyways? And you're such a good friend/southern belle hosting a tea party for your bestie's b-day. Love it.
