Party Highlights

  • What People Ate

    Cupcake-shaped sandwiches (thanks to cupcake cookie cutter), yogurt, berries & fruit, candies

  • What People Drank

    Pink lemonade

  • Best Dressed

    Birthday girl wore custom made (by mommy) bonnet and dress, made from the fabric used as tablecloths at her 1st birthday party the year before.

  • Desserts

    Cupcakes of course!

  • Budget

    Under $100

  • Thrifty Secrets

    Using vases, dishes, jars and baskets from around the house kept things classy, but cheap. Plastic tablecloth went fancy with a small fabric runner on top and inexpensive tulle draped in front. Tabletop & cupcake decorations were simply printables taped to lollipop sticks.

  • Best Moment

    Birthday girl sneaking a taste before the party started

  • Special gift

    I designed and made a fluffy, pink fleece, hedgehog pillow as her birthday present. It sleeps in her bed with her every night.
