Since Callie isn't delivering a baby we decided to have Abby's birthday party early. Spring break is when her actual birthday is. None of her little friends would be here so we are having it now.
Callie decided to have a "Tea Party". I wasn't so sure about this for a two year old and her friends. Being adventurous we decided to give it a try. We went shopping for Kid Friendly food but tried to incorporate some healthy stuff in there too. I am for the "It's a party so junk it all the way!!!!" kind of party, but moms these days are much more consiencous than I was so we did our best.
We made celery filled with peanut butter and a fish cracker stuck on top. Very kid, very cool. We made crackers with cream cheese, topped with a cucumber slice, olives for eyes, and carrots thinnly shaved for a mouth. They were cute but not a fave with the kids. We had cheese sandwiches. We filled bowls with fish crackers and olives. Those did well, of course.
Callie found these stacker servers for kids. They worked perfect. I worked all afternoon on mini red velvet cupcakes topped with cream cheese frosting and sprinkles. They look nice on the little plastic pink plates. Callie only had a pan that baked twelve at a time. Not ideal as it took along time to get them all baked. Sure tasted good though and they were a big hit with the kids.
I bough these very awesome ceramic tea sets. The kids loved those too.
We had hats that someone gave Callie and all the kids wore hats and some long elegant gloves. Made for cute pictures.
Callie had a friend make the cutest fondant cake with a purse, necklace (made out of kixs) and lipstick. It was yummy.
Abby made out like a bandit. She got the coolest toys. Lucky two year old. Work for mommy to clean it all up.
We sent extra cake home in darling "to go" boxes. A great way to get rid of cake.
All in all, it was a success. Now we hope the chocoate will induce Susanna Cate to be born!!! Come on baby, let's party.
