A Perfectly Pink Birthday
February 28, 2012
Strawberry Shortcake doll theme for her birthday this year. (Next year, she wants a Pokemon party. She’s into collecting the cards now. She’s never seen the show or played the video game, mind you. Nothing like planning a year in advance!)
So I decided that if this was the theme, we were going PINK IT UP.
Pink party attire, if the kiddos wanted to wear it. (10 little girls? OF COURSE THEY DID!)
Pink tea sandwiches (Strawberry cream cheese).
Pink ice cream. (Strawberry, but the kind with the most artificial color.)
AND THE PINKEST CAKE YOU HAVE EVER SEEN. If you want to see more details and the recipe for the cake (OF COURSE YOU DO!), hop on over to Pink Sparkle Fun. It exceeded my pinkest strawberry dreams and my kid lost her mind over it.
So we wallowed and reveled in PURE PINK AWESOME.
(Note: Having parties in your house for relatively small children means that YOU are the entertainment. I think they were entertained by our games and whatnot, but oh the tiredness. The party was over a week ago and I still have not cleaned off our dining room table or taken down all of the balloons.)
(There’s Rosebud sneaking down the stairs. Andrew says our cats have mastered the art of photo bombing – which is when one skillfully manages to insert oneself into any given photo.)
There was a lot of hugging.
Hiding in balloons after the party is also fun! I think a good PINK time was had by all. You’d think that all this pink would have put me off pink for awhile. YOU’D BE WRONG.
(Note: To get the cute Strawberry Shortcake party supplies, instead of modern less-cute Strawberry Shortcake, I had to order most of it from Ebay. It all came quicker than quick and I got it for really great prices.)
