Episode Review

The grand event is arriving! Strawberry's berry new cafe will be opening in just a few hours! She still has a couple of tasks to do and asks a few Berrykins to aid her in finishing in time. She sends them off to ask favors from her friends, while Custard goes with them in order to keep an eye on them and make sure they don't make a mess or cause problems for her friends. First they head to Plum Pudding's Studio where she is out in the back practicing her dances.

Unfortunately, the Berrykins misheard Strawberry and assume that Strawberry wants hula dancing. Using a nearby flower for a hula skirt, Plum begins to dance, then she leaves for the cafe.

Next, the Berrykins head over to see Raspberry Torte at her Boutique in order to retrieve the dress for Strawberry to wear. But they do not remember which dress that she wanted to borrow. Strawberry wanted the one with the bows, but the Berrykins think it's the one with the rose. Unfortunately, poor Raspberry has an allergy to most flowers and ends up in a sneezing fit. Briefly, Plum shows up at the Cafe and Strawberry realizes the Berrykins made a mistake.

At Orange Blossom's Orange Mart, the Berrykins can only remember that Strawberry wanted something that was orange and sparkly. Not recalling what though, Orange pulls out anything fitting this description, ranging from vases, tablecloths, and laundry detergent. Unsure of which object it is, the Berrykins just tell her to bring anything orange and sparkly.

The same thing happens at Blueberry Muffin's Bookstore. Strawberry only told them that Blueberry put all of the recipes Strawberry uses into one book. But not whether she wanted one copy to display, or a copy for all her friends, which the Berrykins assume. They do not remember which book though; fortunately, Blueberry realizes that Strawberry probably wants copies of her book. Back at the cafe, Orange shows up with everything but what Strawberry wanted and Strawberry begins to realize that something is wrong...

Meanwhile, the Berrykins are at the last stop, Lemon Meringue's Beauty Salon and do not remember what Strawberry asked them to do. They only come up with Lemon giving Custard a clown-themed makeover, when Strawberry really wanted fruit-themed crowns for the party. With everything finished, they return just as Blueberry is telling Strawberry at their lack of being able to remember much. Leading Strawberry to give a small lecture about listening to people when they tell you things. It's then both Raspberry and Lemon show up.

While it wasn't what she wanted, Strawberry makes the best of it, until she sees Custard begin to float away! As the girls watch in horror, the dandelion fluffs start to blow away in the wind and she begins to float closer to the ground. Strawberry suddenly has a plan and, grabbing a nearby tablecloth, she makes everybody grab an edge, then they hula dance to follow Custard around in order to catch her. The Berrykins believe it was their listening that saved the day, but Strawberry reminds them that it was teamwork instead. And the episode draws to an end as the party begins...
