  2. Did you make the aprons and bonnets yourself? Did the girls get to keep them as favors?

  3. Hey Becky–I bought the bonnets off of ebay and my mother in law kindly made the aprons for me since I couldn’t find any to buy that were what I wanted. I didn’t let the party guests keep them as favors, but if I did that party over again I would let the girls keep them.
