We had Madeline's birthday party Saturday night. We had a small turn out but Madeline had so much fun! A lot of her friends were out of town or sick, but that's to be expected this time of year. Honestly, it made for a super relaxed party. Terry even got to watch football!
Anyway, the theme was strawberry shortcake per Madeline's request. I'm not a big fan of "characters" but her party isn't about me, is it? Terry says it is for me, which is kinda true. haha I can't help myself. Anyway, here are the pictures from the party - actually they're from before the party because I never touched my camera after it started. Bad mom...
|Food table - we had pizza, goldfish, grapes, strawberry shortcake skewers, and cupcakes.|
|Strawberry shortcake skewers - I made pound cake because I thought it would hold up better on a skewer. These were a huge pain but I think they looked cute!|
|Cupcakes...I ordered the fondant toppers from Etsy, and I thought they were adorable!|
|This was my favorite decoration of the whole party. Terry used our old gate to make this back drop for me. I love, love, love how it turned out. He even put grass on the bottom of it.|
|The Madeline mantle - I got a Cricut for Christmas and Terry and I used the heck out of it for this party. It was so fun!|
|The favor table|
|I made playdough and tied a cookie cutter to little Mason jars for the favors.|
|My sweet girl and me before her party started. She had so much fun!!!|
It dawned on me that this will be her last birthday party in this house and probably her last in San Angelo. We are so thankful for our sweet friends!
