Party On a Budget! (Happy Fourth Birthday Paige!!)
Happy fourth birthday to Paige!
We had a little last-minute party for her last week at the church building. We weren't going to do much in the way of decor, but then my mom came over for a visit and brought the party with her! Mom's are so great at that.
Our theme was sort of "whatever we have", so it became a pink party with a subtle asian theme.
My mother brought lots of beautiful hand-crocheted little roses for the tables and some pink lanterns she bought on clearance. Leftover paper butterflies from easter were pinned to curtains I had in my closet for a backdrop to the present opening "throne". Leftover easter egg filler toys from her church's easter egg hunt became favors, which we put in little paper bags with pink notes on them. And mom and I stayed up the night before, laughing and folding paper fans out of scrap booking paper. She also brought a chocolate cake from Costco which we added white-chocolate chip "polk-dots" to.
But the best thing she brought with her? A homemade organic gluten-free, dairy-free, processed sugar-free chocolate cake! Which was enjoyed thoroughly by Paige and her cousin Jack, who both have some food sensitivities. Cake is a big deal to them. :o) (Thanks, Mom!!)
She was a very happy, twirly girl! :o)
Happy birthday little darling. I love you, four year old Paige.
