The kids and I set up a little Chinese New Year party for dinner. We went to T&T market and got some decorations and food. I was totally overwhelmed by all the food. I picked up dumplings thanks to Barb's suggestion and then Vietnamese Vermicelli dishes of all things because I knew I liked them. The noodles are long...for longevity right? LOL
The girls picked out these little girl and guy characters :) Kayleigh learned at school today that the color RED is lucky so she has been squealing and pointing at anything RED saying its lucky.
This is the table setting the girls made. I love the rocks :) They put Red Envelopes on each plate with little drawings/notes of luck in them.
This is our CENTERPIECE...its full of candy....yes candy...and the bottom is all FISH CANDY...YUCK...I didn't know that until I popped one in my mouth. Actually all the candy is gross. So we are going to take the towers apart, paint them and make jewelry boxes :) Yes crafting saves the day.
It was a very fun dinner :)
