Last night saw the beginning of a new tradition... frantically making school costumes at the last possible minute! I forgot all about World Book Day - something I still haven't been forgiven for - so I had to try and redeem myself with an Easter bonnet. Even if we had no eggs or chicks lying about.
We went for a spring theme instead, with the netting off a too small Tinkerbell dress up dress serving as the foliage. Next came a collection of clip on birds, party string, and a random ornamental bobble which Marianna decided was clearly an egg.
Finally, I had to add a butterfly and a few trailing ribbons. It might not be the most Easter-ish of Easter bonnets, but at least she can be sure that none of her friends will have one just like it!
