And neither does our daughter!
I spent most of the morning setting up. We had a vegetable tray, fruit tray, and cheese tray. Light food for the holidays, it’s true, but it was perfect for a little afternoon party!
My mother made every one of our birthday cakes. Continuing that tradition, I made my little girl’s cake, or cupcakes rather. They may not be beautifully decorated, but they melt in your mouth. They are green apple caramel cupcakes. I put them in this cute little Cupcake Holder from Target. We played “Saw Evelyn do it” Bingo. There were BINGO cards on the table, as well as a photobook from Shutterfly.
We had everyone write a little note to Evelyn in the white space of the photobook so that she can read them in years to come. And of course, her candle is burning brightly in the middle of the table!
From wooden blocks, to applesauce cupcakes, to ride able dinosaurs and singing birthday cakes – She was showered with tokens of love from family and friends.
Thank you to all of our wonderful friends and family who were able to come. Those of you who weren’t able to make it, you were greatly missed! I can only hope that every one of her birthday parties for years to come is full of as much love and joy.
