Yesterday we celebrated Emily's 14th birthday. It was very, very... zebra.
She received so many wonderful gifts - and there was definitely a strong zebra theme. Right down to the socks on her feet:
And some really great things for her new room, like this cute zebra wall hanging, made by her sister:
More original art, by her little brother:
And of course, new bedding and curtains:
I felt like I had really splurged to make the curtains (the fabric cost around $40) until I found some almost identical zebra panels at Target that would have cost us $100 to buy.
I can't take credit for the bedding, though. It's from the Seventeen Posh Collection at JC Penney, where my older daughter works. It's absolutely perfect for Emily's room!
What a great day! Many thanks to her grandparents, aunties and uncles, brothers and sister for giving Emily such a fantastic birthday!
