Birthday Rosettes

Wow, I’ve been featured again!! This time at Make it Monday by Brassy Apple. My African Flower Tutorial was the most viewed project this week! Thanks, Megan!

I live in the Netherlands and there people celebrate the birthday of the queen. And the queen’s birthday is today. Well, actually it’s not her birthday, but the birthday of her mother and predecessor, who’s passed away a couple of years ago. Because the present queen is born in January (she celebrated her 74th birthday this year; oldest head of state ever in this country) and people here like to party outside, they still celebrate Q-day on the 30th of April. Chance of good weather will be more likely, that’s why.




I made these Q-day rosette decorations for my little daughters. The whole country will be turned in the red, white and blue of the national flag. The orange stands for 'Van Oranje', the family name of the royal family (which means, good guess, orange). That’s why I chose this colors, but of course every color, for every kind of birthday, will do.
