Candles, streamers, balloons, blowhorns, friends and icing all made this girl very happy on Saturday. Putting on a child's party is harder than I thought it would be considering you have to cater to the food likings of both adults and kids. I was a dimwit and didn't take a picture of the table before hand, so all I have is a sad looking display of what once were apples, homemade scones, crackers, mac&cheese bites and an empty cake platter. Oh well, I guess we were too busy with friends and the birthday girl, which is what mattered most.
Silly Evelyn, though. The girl didn't even touch her cake during the party. After everyone left we went for round two and she was still hesitant. There are few things that she will eat with her fingers these days and apparently cake was not one of them. I had to fork it to her. Once she realized that the stuff was amazing, I let her sit on her own and she was stabbing away. Haha, even toward the end she was licking the crumbs off her plate. I told you little lady it was good ;)
p.s. my mom made Ev's linen birthday dress. She did amazing, especially since she had to eyeball the measurements seeing that we live two coasts apart. I wish these photos showed more of the detail, but thank you mom for making this day extra special!
