When we were living in England, Doug and I had a favorite little out of the way antique store where we bought several fabulous books. One of my favorites was a small book called The Butterfly's Ball and The Grasshopper's Feast written by a Mr. Roscoe. I have loved the story and the illustrations for years now and thought it would be the perfect theme for Anna's 9th birthday party. I meant to do so much more but just ran out of time. I had a ton of help from Doug, my mom and stepdad, and our friend Amanda. Anna had a great time at her ball and we loved celebrating her special day with friends and family. (Following excerpts are from the story...)
Come take up your Hats and away let us haste
To the Butterfly's Ball, and the Grasshopper's Feast.
