That said, we had Mika Lynn's second birthday party on Saturday. It was everything I imagined it would be. She was all smiles so I think she felt very loved and quite special. I decided a few months back to have an ice cream social for her party. It was tons of fun to plan and made for a fun party!
So here you go. A few pictures from my baby's special day.
I couldn't have pulled this off without the help of my sweet friend, Vickie. She helped with the fabric flowers, boxes, everything and she let me bounce ideas off of her. Thanks girl!
I made yummy cupcakes with a delicious frosting recipe I found on Pinterest. Topped with pearl sprinkles, they were the perfect girly cupcake. I thought the patterned boxes were perfect holding the cupcakes.
Garland, "ice cream" banner and balloons. I love how balloons scream "Party!"
Ice cream sundae area. Chocolate sauce, caramel sauce, homemade strawberry sauce, strawberries, chocolate banana chips, cherries, candies, sprinkles and marshmallows. And don't forget the whipped cream.
I ordered the ice cream cups and spoons here. I stamped some of the spoons with Mika's name. I love fun details like that.
I used twine and stickers to dress up the jars a little. Details.
For some reason, two dozen cupcakes looked like a lot on this table. Ha! We had plenty left over this morning that we took to church to share.
The table. I loved the pinks with a hint of yellow. I also made cake batter balls from another Pinterest recipe. Delish.
How cute is this? The ice cream sundae bar was so fun! I loved working with the idea of an ice cream social.
The birthday girl with her Mimi and her big sister. Sadly, my camera lost the sweet pictures I took of Mika and her birthday table.
The girl with her gifts. What a blessing!
It was a wonderful day and the birthday girl loved every minute of it! I still can't believe she is two. I want to thank everyone who celebrated with us and everyone who helped me make the day so special for my baby girl.
Hope you all had a wonderful weekend.
