Since the packers are coming the day after little bit’s birthday, we went ahead and celebrated with her friends a few weeks ago. It always amazes me how decisive she is. Aidan never cared about his birthday party theme until this year. Neely chose Hello Kitty last year, and this year, she requested a Minnie Mouse party. As usual, I had lots of fun decorating and planning. 🙂
I used scrapbook paper and Minnie Mouse birthday printables purchased on Etsy to personalize drinks. (almost typed “drunks” there, tee hee!)
I used paper straws from Shop Sweet Lulu to make color-coordinated cake pops. Yum! (Note for future reference: cake pops are not a good idea at a four-year-old’s birthday party. Major mess on the floor from pops falling off sticks.)
Cupcakes, of course! Those printables did double duty for this party.
My big girl. She looks so pensive…like she’s thinking up a really good birthday wish. Those fun candles are also from Shop Sweet Lulu.
Blowing out candles…
Cousin Lycie is excited for her. 🙂
Enjoying the goodies…
Everyone went home with a polka dot cookie. I know. It’s shocking that after last year’s debacle with the Hello Kitty cookies, I actually attempted decorating sugar cookies again…with much greater success. It still probably won’t be a regular thing. I wouldn’t have done it this time if my “friend who makes cookies” hadn’t just had a baby!
