Last year I had mentioned that Casandra's creative side was blossoming, but let me tell you, this year it has fully bloomed. She was in full control of what she wanted and her vision for her baby girl's b-day party. The truth is she has party planning gene, but is now truly inspired to use it. I really loved her ideas, and I added more of the smaller DIY details to her vision via signs and little homemade extras. It was a lot of fun!
It always works in Katarina's favor that her birthday lands right around Valentines day because the candy assortment and heart shaped marshmallows made available are so easy to gather and then place into pretty mason jars or candy kabobs. And fruit kabobs are always an easy and healthy addition to any table scape.
Casandra had set up a hot dog and sausage bar with all kinds of fixings and variety of breads (even pretzel bread rolls- omg!). She also had this amazing homemade Mac-N-Cheese recipe that was the absolute bomb even for the adults along with Soup Plantation broccoli salad. Yumm!
After all the set up was done it was time to take pictures of the birthday girl...
She was a little overwhelmed with all the fuss so the smiles were not readily available,
but she's as cute serious as she is when she's not.
These are my favorites...
All in all, she had a lot of fun playing in her jumpy with her little friends and that's all that mattered to us. It turned out to be a beautiful afternoon for this beautiful 2 year old little girl who continues to steal our hearts.
Happy Birthday Katarina! We Love You!
From my corner to yours...Have a nice weekend.
