It All Started With a Dream of Mint Green Shoes

 
It all started with a dream that my daughter had.
 
In her dream, she bought some mint green shoes..."AND THEY WERE SO CUTE!"
 
 
 
She would have no luck finding mint green shoes in the small village she lives in,  so she travelled to the big cities up north in pursuit of mint green shoes.
 
 
 
Although she looked and looked, her pursuit was in vain, no mint green shoes could be found in the big cities.  She settled for a turquoise pair of shoes'
 
The girl who had the dream had a very special birthday party coming up...she was turning Sweet 16.
 
 
Since she couldn't find mint green shoes, she decided to have a mint green Sweet Sixteen Party.
 
 
 
She and her mother prepared the food with care.  The girl who dreamed about mint green shoes made sure that the cake frosting, the cake pops, and the cookie icing were just the right shade of green...like the green in her dream.
 
 
Her mother tried to make everything "just rosy" for the special girl who had turned 16.  She made a mint green rose cake for the girl who had a dream about the shoes.
 
 
Since the girl couldn't realize her dream of buying mint green shoes, she twisted her dream and had a mint green party.
 
 
And so the beautiful birthday girl with the dream about mint-colored shoes blew out her candles with many good wishes for the future.
 
 
 
And the mint-colored cake tasted very good.

 
 
 The End

Happy sweet 16 to Tati! Joni, that cake is just gorgeous. xo (PS I have in the past searched for special shades, too. I would wind up dyeing the shoes, sometimes it worked sometimes not!)

Beautiful cake! I love the mint color!!

The mint green shoes certainly inspired a beautiful party. The cake and pops are so pretty, and the cookies clever. Wonderful idea for a Sweet 16 party. You two are so clever!
Perhaps those mint green shoes will find Tati soon. You never know what awaits those who are patient. ;-)

And I can tell it was SWEET! Tell the birthday girl to search online where you can find your heart's desire of any color shoe you want! Happy Birthday Sweet 16!
