{Kate McRae} Sweet 6th Snowflake Birthday Celebration!

If you read this blog, you know that I've been moved by Kate McRae's story. I follow her mom, Holly's blog but often wait a few days between reading because it upsets me so much.
Kristina from Modern Frills emailed me offered to create a custom shirt for Kate's upcoming birthday. Kristina's email sparked the idea of contacting Holly to see if I could help with Kate's birthday celebration. I had always wanted to reach out to Holly, but I really never knew what to say. Holly accepted my offer and without trying to be overbearing, I offered to do whatever I could...decorate, cupcakes, a special outfit, photography, gifts, anything to make Kate's day special. I sent her links to my most popular parties, and Kate chose the Red/Aqua Snowflake party! It is likely that Kate will be in the hospital for her birthday. I will just follow Holly's lead with how she wants to celebrate. If she wants to wait until she is home, or do something to celebrate in the hospital.

In the meantime, Kristina with Modern Frills designed this PERFECT snowflake shirt for Kate. Isn't it gorgeous? The quality is exceptional and Kristina was so efficient and a pleasure to work with on this. Visit her SHOP to see more of her adorable designs!

I have several other offers to help with the party, and I will post more as things progress!
If you would have an item you think would fit with this theme, or would like to send a birthday gift for Kate, please email me at kim@thetomkatstudio.com!

Thank you, Kristina for this wonderful idea.
I hope we can help make Kate's birthday celebration her best yet!
