Hello everyone! Happy February! This month is going to fly by super fast...considering its the 7th of the month before I even get around to blogging! I have lots of stuff going on right now, and I have some possible personal life decisions coming up over the next week, and I will have to sit down and figure out all of the pros and cons of the situation to see which path to choose. I'll talk more about it later. :)
Right now I wanted to show you some highlights from Emma's 5th Birthday Party last month. She had a Princess Tea Party theme, and we made some tea party snacks together and a few simple decorations that the girls absolutely loved.
We created red velvet cupcakes, complete with pink frosting and pearls and flowers on top! The flowers were created by rolling out gum drops and gummy rings! The girls really loved helping make those.
Next, we made tea sandwiches, I bought a loaf of white, and a loaf of wheat bread, then used my flower shaped cookie cutter, and of all things a shot glass to cut the middles out of each flower! I then swapped the colors so the bread was flip flopped! We smothered them with cream cheese and strawberry preserves.
We also made little baby skewer with meat, cheese and olives. The kids devoured them instantaneously (OK, the adults did their fair share too!)
I don't have a good photo, but I also made a fruit platter with raspberries, cantaloupe and pineapple, and using a heart shaped cookie cutter we cut out some very special heart shaped pineapple pieces. We opted for apple juice instead of tea, and we have a heart shaped ice cube tray, and I added raspberries to the water before it was frozen. Lastly over there in the right side of the photo are pickle wraps. I never thought anyone would like them until a friend of mine made them once.... so simple, diabetic friendly.... all it is, lunch meat, spread cream cheese on it, then placed a long sliced pickle in the middle and wrap them up. It really is good!
I didn't have the best quality of photos because my camera screen broke, so for right now we are down to the smart phone! If you want to take a peek of photos from the rest of the party HERE.
