Two little bees had a birthday this week and received this adorable card in the mail.  Having never heard of Meri Meri, we had to do some sleuthing!

Who knew that when Meredithe (who’s childhood nickname was Meri Meri) sat at her kitchen table 25 years ago with paper, pens, and a big pot of glitter that her whimsical creations would end up on the shelves of Bergdorf Goodman and Neiman Marcus

Since we didn’t receive the above invitation in time (sigh!), we thought we might throw a party of our own to watch the royal wedding.  Given the early hour (4 a.m. EST), the dress is pj’s and robes…
