Here's a little scrap book from Greta's birthday party. This year the theme was pink and neon and whilst last year it was also kind of mine and my husband party too (we had both made it through the first year of parenthood!), this year it was only Greta's and her little friends.
We had all her favourite foods (to be eaten in no particular order: ice creams, olives, cup cakes, pizza, cookies and milk, pop corn and cheese sandwiches), and her favourite Gymboree teacher came over to play a special lesson for two year olds that involved Greta's current obsession (and the soundtrack to our home): Nemo.
I am not a cook or a baker so I bought everything from Waitrose and made everything look super pretty (I especially loved my milk and cookies bottles!). The party bags on the other hand were something I really enjoyed making, I brought back mini baskets from Tunisia and filled them with lots of goodies like ELC neon mini pots of play doh for the boys and wash off nail polish for the girls from Little BU.
Greta wore a floral dress that her godmother gave her, Crew Cuts neon hair clip (plus a gold glitter crown headband from Hennies during her birthday cake) and Marks and Spencer glitter lace up shoes... I got emotional like every birthday and shed a tear (or two) at cake time...
See the post earlier this week to see where I bought all bits and bobs
