Esther’s Mrs. Tiggy-Winkle Party

Monday, October 7th, 2019

Sept. 14: This year Esther came up with the idea for a Mrs. Tiggy-Winkle party. This is one of our favorite Beatrix Potter tales. I knew what I would do for her cake.

Esther knew exactly who all the hanging clothes belonged to. Squirrel Nutkin’s tailcoat (no tail), Tabby Kitten’s mittens (though Mrs Tiggy Winkle actually only irons them), Sally Henny Penny’s stockings (heels worn out), Mrs. Josephine Rabbit’s hankerchief (smells like onions) and Peter Rabbit’s blue coat (shrunk).

There weren’t tons of ideas on the internet for me to draw on but knowing a bit about the show/manga gave me enough.
