When you have a teenager, turning 15, during a global pandemic you get creative.
My girl loves to bake, but our dreams of having all the girls over to bake and decorate cupcakes (and do other crafts) in our kitchen just didn’t seem safe or smart, all things considered.
So, we moved it outside. Anna-Laura baked the cupcakes ahead of time and then we used a painter’s palette to hold all the toppings and each girl got her own bag of icing. The girls all sat on their own blankets, decorating cupcakes, drinking sweet tea and enjoying some good ‘ol fashioned conversation.
We included a few extra snacks in the shape of cupcakes, added some pretty flowers, decorated the sweetest farm table in our driveway and called it awesome.
It was easy, safe and memorable. Hey, you do what you gotta do!
