My daughter’s birthday came and went and I am embarrassed to be posting about it so late. Sorry Mom!
My daughter is a wonderful little girl with a good head on her shoulders. I am not eloquent enough to share all her remarkable qualities however the one I can say with certainty is that she knows what she likes. This year, planning her party was her main focus. She decided on her theme. “Cowgirl in the West,” she said. She got out the box of crayons to show me the colors she wanted to use. She selected 5 colors and I decided to use 4. No need to go crazy! 😉 I came up with a design that she tweaked (3 revisions) until she was happy. She planned the food and what activities she wanted to do. She helped decorate and set things up. This is the first year where I felt like the helper and she was the designer. It was a lot of fun to work with her and let her take ownership in the effort we put in. I could tell she was super proud of the party.
The colors she chose.
The cake was a four layer chocolate cake with buttercream frosting. The hat was made out of fondant which I used rice crispies to form the hat.
Piñata and painting was their activities.
Of course the big brother was the one to crack open the piñata.
I placed the candy from the piñata into party favor bags with a cute tag that said Thank ye’ kindly. They also got to take their painted masterpiece home.
The thank you cards.
