The Winner of the 2007 parade - look familiar - didn't even need the bird poop!



























THE EASTER BONNET PARADE 2007
There were some fabulous bonnets!!!
But HEY!

Who would have thought it! We Won!
How, why, what are all words that come to mind.

If you read my last post you will realise that my daughter and I were running out of idea's.

Bird poop and huge nest did not go down well ..... she wanted pretty, delicate, colourful and full of eggs..... hmmmm just like last year. Well what could we do that was different??

A dainty little nest is held on the head with lots of pink net. The nest is filled with chocolate eggs. It has a thick velvet tree trunk coming out of the nest with roses and vines climbing up and over. Down in the trunk are many more chocolate eggs.

Hey .... the big fluffy chick from last year has returned, he is so big he is literally hanging out the nest calling for mama.


This is the back of the bonnet with more eggs to share with the class.

Below are all the lovely coloured eggs that filled her bonnet.










Well as soon as my daughter had won, off came the hat and a swarm of hungry mouths waited to have their eggs..... and then that was that they were all gone.... well for another year.

Congratulations! Beautiful!

My son would have thought the bird "poo" idea funny, but probably best that you went with this idea instead! ;)
