Saturday was Alethea’s polka-dot cupcake birthday party.
I had so much fun putting together the decor including my homemade happy birthday sign and table confetti:
Of course, cutting out so many circles took some time. Good thing I had endless Royal Wedding coverage to keep me distracted from Thursday night into the wee hours of Friday morning. I now know more about Kate Middleton than any reasonable person ought to.
When Saturday arrived, Alethea donned her polka-dot party dress. I know I’m biased but I think she looked smashing!
We only convinced her to come back and finish opening her gifts by telling her there was more stuff for her baby dolls in the remaining packages. She ended up with a fantastic assortment of new accessories including a feeding set, two potty chairs and a bathtub! Alethea was positively in heaven!
With so many new toys around, Alethea declined any interest in eating lunch, even though we had pizza, her favorite food. She did consent to take a break from playing long enough to blow out her birthday candles.
The cake turned out cute, although I naturally had visions of grandeur in my head when I was planning it. Despite the fact that it was more ‘homespun’ than I had originally hoped, it seemed like everyone thought it tasted good:
Can’t believe how old she sounds when she talks! Yikes! I’m the mother of a two year old!
