Party Recap

This was my first big, themed party (I did a bit of a farm-themed party for my son when he turned one, but it was outdoors and FAR less work!). This was a ton of work and (with a few unrelated illness and work emergencies thrown in) ended up meaning not much sleep, but I think it was worth it!


Party Highlights

  • Desserts

    Cake(s), cherry pie, lollipops, fruit

  • Party Favors

    Caterpillar craft and decorate yourself butterfly wings

  • Best Moment

    Lily getting her own slice of chocolate cake!

  • What People Ate

    One apple, two pears, three plums, four strawberries, five oranges, one piece of chocolate cake, one pickle, one slice of cheese, one slice of salami, one lollipop, one piece of cherry pie, one sausage, one cupcake, one nice green leaf (plus some buns and some white cake).

  • What People Drank

    Bug Juice (cherry limeade) and Butterfly Nectar (peach tea)

  • Most Touching Moment

    Lily loved playing peek-a-boo with tissue paper from her gifts (seeing big brother, Sam on the other side was more fun for her than getting presents).
