    I LOVE your party! The peace sign cookies are great...any tips on how you frosted them? Did you use royal icing? Also can you explain how you microwaved the t-shirts? Super cute!

    @Kirstie--Thanks! as far as the cookies, i actually use a cream cheese frosting! I've been doing the cookies for a while, so it's been a lot of trial and error. I treat it like royal, but it doesn't dry hard so they can't be stacked. for the t-shirts--after the girls used squeeze bottle dyes (Tulip brand) on their shirts, I placed each one indiv. in a ziploc bag. leave the ziploc open a little to vent, then microwave until it's nice and hot ( i just did 1 min. increments and kept checking). it should be just hot enough that you can still hold it for a second. then rinse out all extra dye and throw them in the dryer!

    I would love to have these water bottles for my daughter's b-day party. Did you make them yourself or buy them? If you bought them, where did you buy them from?
