And yes, I did have to go buy a new Scrabble game for the letters. My brother asked me this when we were opening gifts so I thought I'd answer that question here too, haha. I checked several Goodwills and Arcs, but didn't find anything except a cheap kid's version with bright cardboard letters. I guess Scrabble is just a classic that people don't give away!
Here's what I did...
While I was at it, I thought it would be fun and festive to make a little cake bunting too, out of the paper that I used for the picture frame background. So I just cut out little flags, strung them together, and stuck it in the cake... and it was a German chocolate cake so it matched perfectly :)
So that's what I did for the most wonderful mom in the world! Happy birthday one more time mom!
