this weekend we had a little fourth birthday party for m.
it was really poor planning,
since matt was out of town for friday and saturday.
somehow i thought i could manage corralling two small children
and making a party happen.
matt and i are usually a good team when it comes to parties,
so i was missing him.
luckily this party was smaller than the ones we usually throw, and i had a lot of help-
(my mom took the girls for part of the day on friday
and then yesterday before the party i had helpers come early to help me out)
so just maybe i come up with visions for how things should look at a party
(former roommates and husband are not allowed to comment on how true this is) ;
when m told me she wanted gold & pink, i embraced it!
(since the alternative was princesses, which i was not as excited about,
i was happy to make pink & gold happen.
plus i showed her a pretty glittery cake on pinterest and she loved it,
so i got out of making a cake covered with "princess faces and dressees"
like she initially requested.)
a sneak peek at the decorations:
i glitter sprayed these pink globes we had and strung them up in our livingroom
and made bunting out of pink and gold glitter paper i got at the craft store
to string throughout the downstairs.
then i made a pretty pink cake for m...
i sort of loved how it turned out!
i made hearts out of the extra bunting paper &
sprinkled the top with pale pink sanding sugar over the white buttercream frosting.
the kids decorated party hats
i told matt yesterday that our children are vessels of destruction to our clean house.
me, trying to get ready for party?
them, destroying every area of the house that they can,
as usual, ruby takes tumbles here and there.
