They are cousins, born only days apart in the month of March. It was only natural that we would expect them to be close, but in those early days it seemed a little doubtful.
They turned four this month. We don’t always do combined parties but this seemed like a good year to do one. Their very first all-girl party. We asked them what kind of party they wanted and we got a one word response… PINK! Very well then…
On a beautiful spring day we set the party table up on Jessica’s back lawn. Seven little friends would be there soon with their party frocks on. We planned a small art project, a luncheon filled with girly-pink foods and of course; pink birthday cake.
The two birthday girls waiting anxiously for their guests to arrive.
We put the party favor baskets down the length of the table. In my head this seemed like the perfect solution but in reality it was a constant source of temptation and confusion for the girls Fortunately everyone went home with their favor baskets in tact… mostly.
We started the party off with a craft project. I found a free Birthday Crown printable on the internet. Jessica and I bought lots of fun paper flowers and glitter to decorate them with.
The grandmas stayed to help with the party. You never know how art projects are going to go when you have a lot of little ones to help, but it went fantastic! Jessica came up with the brilliant idea to use small bowls of glue and q-tips for application and that made all the difference in the world! The girls carefully decorated their crowns and we left them to dry in the sun as we finished the party.
This is just a shot of the little hair clips I made to put in their party favor bags. Right now you can buy these little crocheted flowers at Michaels. A package of 12 only cost $2.00! I think I need to go back and get a bunch more!
