We always have so much going on in the months of May and June. We have 3 birthdays, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, end of school parties and planning for Canada Day too. Often by the time we get to Ava’s birthday at the end of June I’m exhausted. This year she requested a friend party, and the rule is if you do a friend one, the family one is simple and sweet. So this year it was exactly that.
I actually had to work on her birthday so we did things a little differently this year. I had everything set up and ready to go when she got home from school. We opened presents and ate cake in the afternoon, which felt weird. But who doesn’t like dessert before dinner.
I made a really simple banner by ripping fabric into strips and just tying it on some string.
Her koala bear stuffy was lonely for some Australian company, so we got a kangaroo to be her friend.
Now onto my favourite part, the cake.
I looooooove cake!
I scraped off the red coloring around the edges and colored it purple with a sharpie marker. Then I randomly glued buttons, sequins, beads and any other random stuff I had lying around. I filled in the bare spaces with sliver glitter and voila! Custom candle.
And this was Grey after he ate the candle.
Her friend party was celebrated at Michaels, and it was so much fun. I’ll post pictures from that soon!
