Craft Hope: February

the pink party

For Fidget's third birthday, the only request was 'pink'.  So a pink gingham tablecloth and polka dot napkins followed.  And balloons.  And streamers.  And a cake. And little bowls of pink candies.  That was it.  Three year olds are pretty easy to please.  They must be. Because just before we started everything, she said to me, " Mommy, thanks for making my party."  Melted my heart like buttah.

I was particularly happy with the cake.  I used a yellow cake mix for the three tiers, but made several batches of the real homemade bad-for-you-but-oh-so-good white crisco frosting for a nice thick layer.  I followed Inchmark's Dot Cake directions for the royal icing dots.  What an easy trick.  There were even some dots left over for the cupcakes we took to school today.


The party's over but the balloons remain.  I love that birthday haze that lingers for the few days afterwards, where there is still cake to snack on and remants of the fun we had can still be found around the house... 

Here's to another year, sweet Fidgie.  You make momma proud.



What a sweet & elegant birthday party for such a sweet little girl! I can't belive she's 3 now! LOVE the cake! Sounds yummy too!


Happy Birthday, Fidge! Your mama sure knows how to make her girl's special day all the more special.

Happy birthday, Fidge! What a pretty party.


Love the pink theme! You did a bang up job. Can I have a slice of that cake??....yum....


Looks like a wonderful day! Tell my "littlest girlfriend" Happy B Day from Auntie Liz!

Love the dots. They turned out just right.


I would like to be 3 years old just to have a so FABULOUS PINKIE PARTY!!! WOWWWW!!!

You are a great mom! :-)


wow you take such beautiful photos!


i initially thought the dots were fruit flavored mentos, which are about the same colors and are the size of a nickel. so if anyone is interested in going the lazy route, swap in some mentos!
