Another Year, Another Little Girls’ Birthday Bash

Today we celebrated Annabelle and Daisy’s 7th birthday (official birthday was a few days ago) and Lilah’s (upcoming) 5th birthday.

My friend/the twins’ teacher, Caryl, came to help.  Thank goodness!

A dozen little girls arrived and were served pizza and fruit for lunch.

This year’s party theme was: Cake Decorating.  Each partygoer got a personalized apron – these were super easy and fun.  I bought the children’s aprons in bulk (5 aprons for $20) at Michael’s and decorated them with iron-on patches (also bought in bulk from Michael’s) and wrote each child’s name in fabric marker.  Easy squeezy!

We started with Sara Lee pound cakes . . .

Each child got her own on a cake board and went to town:

You want some, don’t you?


Yes, we will be picking sprinkles from the floor for the next two years.  That’s okay, it was worth it.

Each culinary artiste got to take her masterpiece home.

And then it was time for the real birthday cake –

Until next year!

    I am so totally stealing this idea next year! Looks like a great party, thanks for sharing.

    I don’t see any other adults besides you & Caryl. Even with all kinds of “please drop off your kids” messages, so many of the parents still stick around for our parties. I can handle a dozen kids, but I can’t handle a dozen parents in the way.
