Backyard Birthday Party

Sophia will be 4 on Monday!!! I can’t believe how fast the years are flying by. My little girl is growing up right before my eyes. She is so excited for her birthday and couldn’t wait to help me plan her “Friend Party.” She and I went shopping and she wanted to pick every single detail herself. She chose a unicorn theme and picked her decorations, plates, and napkins. She was so excited picking out her goody bags for her friends and hand picked every single candy to go inside of her piΓ±ata. ” My party is going to be perfect she said!”

Of course as her mom I wanted to be sure I made her party special. Yesterday I worked hard on creating the most adorable cupcake ice cream cones, cupcakes, and a mini cake. All with my famous marshmallow butter cream. I love making homemade frosting, I actually can’t imagine eating a cake with store bought frosting.. eh.

This morning I prepared a fruit salad but made it in the shape of a rainbow on my cutting board. It came out adorable and was a big hit at the party. I would love to say I thought of this all on my own, but I have to give Pinterest a little love on that one! I think having a good variety of healthy snacks at a birthday party is key. While the kids played outside they had options of pirates booty, goldfish, and fruit to snack on while we waited for pizza and cake. It was perfect for the backyard setting. We planned ahead and ordered pizza to be delivered at the party… what kid doesn’t love pizza! After lunch it was time for the piΓ±ata…. that was so much fun!

The kids had a great time today… and seeing the smile on Sophia’s face was worth every minute! Tonight before bed she looked at me as she she wiped her tired little eyes and said “Mama do you think my friends liked my party?” I said ” Yes baby, yes I do” She just smiled and fell asleep. I looked at my husband and said I am so happy she had such a good day. These are the moments we live for as parents.
