Kermit the Frog! The first character that my kids became obsessed with. Our Muppet movie collection started with Muppets Take Manhattan, The Great Muppet Caper, and Muppets in Space. We have since added The Best of the Muppet Show, Muppet Christmas Carol, Muppets Christmas Letters, and Kermit's Swamp Years. There was a period of a few months when they wanted to watch Muppets Take Manhattan or The Great Muppet Caper ALL DAY LONG. Thankfully they've since discovered Cars, Elmo in Grouchland and the ever-popular Mickey Mouse. So when we find ourselves singing of Miss Piggy's love for Kermit when the movie isn't on we can take a break for a bit.
Now for the good stuff - Birthday Brainstorming! Bullet-pointed for ease of reference.
First the overall scene. The party will most-likely be family at our house for cake and presents. The colors will be lime green and hot pink.

and hot pinklatex balloons and hot pink curling ribbon
- Can use hot pink squares of fabric from wedding
- Wrap gifts in lime green paper with hot pink ribbon
- 6" round cakes for each of the girls embellished with their first initial. Chocolate cake with mint icing for Julia. Strawberry cake with vanilla icing for Amelia. Cupcakes in the same flavors for the guests all with home-made kermit cupcake picks.
These are the actual plates and fabrics I bought.
