So, the party was wonderful - many kudos to the director and staff of Latah County Historical Society and all their volunteers. My Littles had a fabulous time making tags and cards and just soaking in the atmosphere of the old home. Here is a pic of the tree. The small round things were roses made from crepe paper. I wish I would have taken a close-up of them.
Here is a close up of the fans I made. The papers for the roses were chalked and tea-dipped to achieve the same tones as the wallpaper.
And here is one version of the paper filigree snowflakes.
And the display in the Gift Shop.
Which just goes to prove, you never know where you'll be when inspiration grabs you!
