Seersucker & Sunshine

Put together by Atlanta mama, Bunny Hilliard, this seersucker and sunshine party is one for the little sprinters. Inspired by her little man’s love of being outside and playing in the sun, she created a fabulous spring birthday. Fresh lemonade and mint? Yum! Check out the DIY methods that Bunny used right here.
