A Divine Easter Sunday

Monday, 5 April 2010

It was an absolutely divine Easter Sunday at Rodney's Nursery yesterday here in Canberra. Thanks to the exquisite stylings of Katie Dawson from MissChief Maker, who threw this event to raise funds for the 4TylerFames Fund, around eighty kids and their families enjoyed a perfect sunshiney afternoon of fun and games.

Whilst intrepid egg-layers set about laying their finest foiled chocolate treats, I kept the kids busy outside the MissChief Maker shop (below left) with a story-reading of Riley and the Sleeping Dragon. Then it was off and running for treasure!

I was stunned when Ella and Riley simultaneously unearthed (literally!) the great golden egg (above). They were absolutely delighted.

As crowds milled around, the excitement began to build for the Easter Bonnet Parade. Ella, with her 100% handmade creation, below left, was super-excited to get started, as Emma from Brindabella Baby (below right) began gathering together the talented little bunnies who entered.

Emma has just moved her shop to the stunning grounds of Rodney's Nursery, just down from MissChief Maker - but more on that in an upcoming post.

Katie Dawson (below left, second from right) got busy marking off all registered entrants as little ones gathered in their festive creations... SO wonderful to see boys entering their fabulous hats!

I don't know how the judges made a decision. Just beautiful. And after the bonnet parade, kids also enjoyed a colouring-in competition and lots of prize giveaways thanks to generous sponsors. Be sure to check the MissChief Maker website for updates on the event. Well done, Katie, Emma and everyone ivolved!

Great photos! My favourite Easter bonnet was the little boy in the gold sparkly hat.
