Overdue: Amelia's Birthday Party Photos

OK, so this is really late, I know. I shared party pictures on Facebook, but I know there are some yet who haven't seen them. I decided that last year's party was such an easy success that I would just have the exact same one again for her this year. We invited friends for breakfast at the park, and had coffee for all of the grownups while the kids played. It was a lot of fun, and super easy. Maybe we'll do it again next year....
I made the cupcakes, cake, hard boiled eggs and fancy juice and then Joy made some awesome muffins and Amy brought strawberries. We bought some good coffee and called it breakfast. I wish I had a picture here of the lanterns hung up in the trees-- decorations for the birthday girl who was terrified of balloons!

She loves matryoshka dolls, so I put the tiny one from her set on the cake...

Something unique about Amelia is that she LOVES to anticipate an event. So we were talking about her party a month in advance. Every time I asked her what she wanted for her birthday party, she said, "A chocolate cupcake with chocolate frosting and a strawberry on top." I think she enjoyed all of the other aspects of the party too!The little birthday clip and apron were made by her grandma.
Enjoying her sugar high.
