Our nephew, Dylan, also Kayo’s godson, celebrates his birthday the day after Summer’s. So our family has been on party mode all month. Dylan’s party was held yesterday and his Mom, Amy, came up with the coolest party theme: Farmers Market! She put all the effort in putting together a delicious food buffet and it really turned out looking great. There were fresh fruit and vegetables, candied walnuts (winner!), bread, corn on the cob, homemade baby back ribs (another winner!), muffins, fried tofu, a bottomless supply of yummy dalandan juice and instead of the traditional birthday cake, Dylan had homemade apple pie (always a winner!).
Amy asked help with decor and had market signs painted. I gladly agreed and made them using watercolor. Lately, I’ve been enjoying painting white on black paper so I also made a couple in that style. I had so much fun making them that I ended up making more than what she asked for!
