A Few Snippets

Thank you everyone for the Birthday wishes last week! We had the social at a cool ice cream Shoppe nearby.

  It was a bit chilly to eat outside in the courtyard but nice enough for a little pinata fun afterwards.

I used Martha Stewart stickers and some ribbon to spruce up the party hats a bit.

And I was pretty excited when I found the ice cream cone nail polish and erasers for the goodie bags. Mr. 65th Avenue surprised me by making a CD compilation with the little ones face on the cover. Too cute!

For the table centerpiece we made some easy edible flowers out of construction paper.

 The weekend was a lot of fun and now we officially have a four year old!


  1. I hope you had a wonderful birthday! Love the favours and sweet paper flowers...

  2. You are just too clever! Love the centerpieces! How cute are those? Your daughter looks so cute trying to break the pinata. How sweet!

  3. Love those centerpieces!!! It looks so fun and what a cute picture of your daughter!

  4. So cute! I always went a little crazy when I would plan my daughter's b-days. I found I really enjoyed getting creative and coming up with different ideas for favors and decorations. I would always bake this big elaborate cake. One year it was a 7 layered castle cake, the next a dragon cake. Now, I am not a baker but couldn't stop myself! I was of course up till 1 a.m. the night before the party!

    It is so much fun having a little one to do this for. Now it is roller blading parties or laser tag. I still find ways to sneak in a bit of creative fun! Enjoy her 4 years of age!


  5. Okay, I think I lived down the street from that for 9 years!? And grew up less than a handful of miles away. I don't know why I never thought to have a party there but what a great idea! And I think we may just be neighbors :)


  6. Thanks for the comment on my blog! So glad to meet another chicago area blogger! I actually grew up in Orland Park (so close to Plush Horse - which is delicious!). My husband and I now live in the city. Love your blog!
