TIARA COOKIES/ Princess for a Day

It was all fun for a bunch of little girls attending a spring birthday party. Our grand-niece is now 4 years old. As mentioned in an earlier post, Preppy Turtles she celebrated her birthday with her little brother in a beautiful, downtown park along the Potomac River. (She thinks her little brother is the best thing Mommy & Daddy ever brought home.) The young lasses colored pinwheels, danced and played with their gal pals. Pink, glitter, tutus and sparkly shoes are cool with these young hipsters. So, it had to be pink and purple tiaras for these little princesses.
