What?! i'm actually blogging?! Well, the little girlies turned 4 this month and we finally had a party this weekend.
Earlier in the month we discussed themes and preferences etc. Here's a snippet of our conversation:
Me: "So, girls, you are going to have a birthday party. lets talk about what it should be."
Madeline:"i yike bunnies and pincessess! i want a bunny party! i want a pincess party! i yove pink and red!"
Sophie:"i DON'T yike pincesses. i yike doggies and pirates. I want a ninja party... my favorite color is brown and green and black. I reawwwy yike pirates. my doggie is a pirate and so am i."
Sophie: "I also want a star wars party"
Me: "you don't know what Star Wars is sweetie."pinned and decided the easiest tie-in would be their favorite animals. Thankfully, they are just 4 so in the end they probably would have been thrilled with any kind of party!
They loved the little details. One of the sweetest moments came the day before when i had just finished drawing on a pirate patch to Sophie's dog shirt. When i showed S. she exclaimed, " is that a PIRATE doggie?! Do i get to wear THAT for the party?! Mom, i knew you could make the best pirate doggie shirt ever....do i have to wear a skirt with it???"
Anyway, we went with a brunch theme...mostly because kids are happiest in the morning aaaand its the only time that we get lots of natural light in our house. :)
****yes, that cute server at the end of the table is Handy Andy. He was baker extrordinaire for the party. Whipped up scones and egg cups and looked super cool while he did it.
