Mother’s Day is one of the most important celebrations of the year. Our mothers have been there for us throughout our lives. Through the trials and tribulations of school, to our evolution into adulthood, our mothers have been there to pick us up and keep us moving forward. Mother’s Day celebrates all that our mothers have done and sacrificed for us. It is a day dedicated to giving back to our mothers and showing our appreciation for all they have gone through. It can be difficult to celebrate this wonderful day when our mother lives out of town. Making this day special when we cannot be with her is not always an easy task. Finding the right gift can be a challenge, especially during these economic times. Jewelry can be expensive, and flowers most often don’t show up until the later part of the day. The secret to ensuring a special Mother’s Day is finding the right catering company.
A select few catering companies, usually corporate catering companies, are able to deliver with a low minimum order – perhaps a lunch or two – and are invaluable on Mother’s Day and many other events. If you are having trouble finding one that delivers on a Sunday, send mom a special lunch to her work or home on Friday. She will be surprised and feeling special as she indulges in her gourmet lunch. If you worry about her feeling alone send two lunches – a perfect excuse for her to invite a friend along to lunch. Or send an extra tray of goodies to share with the whole office. Worried about too much sugar? Send a nice appetizer for her to share with her co-workers or neighbors. A nice breakfast platter is another way to create a special day for mom. Another option that a good caterer will offer is a gift basket. These can usually be delivered locally or shipped to addresses out of their delivery area. One of the most popular catering companies on the west coast is Ingallina’s Box Lunch. Finding the right catering company can make celebrating Mother’s Day an easy, enjoyable task.

When the party is over, Angelina can still wear the look by changing up the accessories: a marabou feather jacket, a tiara and a pair of thigh high boots! Here, Muriel is the ying to Angelina’s yang. Same technique, different look. This time we went for a longer tutu. But first, an underskirt. In many cases, the longer ballerina skirts are more dense. The challenge here is the transparency of the tutu you’ve just created. You will never be able to add enough layers to get the semi opaque look of the full scale. So, we had to make an underskirt. I made a gathered skirt cut from a sheer fabric so that it blends in better with with the tulle. In this case I cut up an old negligee and made a simple gathered skirt. You can also use organdy, organza, cotton voile, nylon or sheer non-wovens. 1. Super simple, this is a rectangle with a double row of running stitches at the top.
Pull the thread to gather the skirt until it fits around the doll’s waist. Use a strip of ribbon or lace as your waistband and lay it on top of the gathers. Then topstitch the ribbon onto the skirt. To hide the stitching on the backside, you can cut a tiny bit of sheer or tulle the size of the waistband and topstitch it to the back. 2. This skirt only has one seam which you can stitch up from the hem to about 1 inch (2cm) of the waist. Press the seam open. Close the waistband with a snap or hook & eye. 3. Here is our finished underskirt. You should not add a hem. In my case, the fabric doesn’t ravel which is perfect. But if you are using a material which does, apply “Fray Check” or a bit of craft glue diluted with a couple drops of water and apply to the edge with a toothpick. Tulle, by the way, never needed hemming! Before I show the result.
