Annelise's Bday Prep
last summer, and their two favorite shows are Wild Recon and Zoboomafoo.)
I broke down and bought goody bag favors for the first time, (I've always made personalized cookies for the kids every year,
but all my special cookie cutters are also packed up with our house.) I got princess activity books and roll-on glitter :-) for the girls and Hotwheels activity books & a car for the boys.
Since my castle cake mold is packed up, we're doing the princess doll cake, (a round cake that looks like the doll's dress w/ a doll stuck in the middle,) and Will got Sissy this Ballerina Ariel today to go in the middle. (BTW - let me recommend this line of princess dolls! It was $5.35 at Walmart - the cheapest Disney or regular Barbie in the store, and the shoes & bodice are molded/painted on, so no lost clothes or shoes!!! Remember, that was Sissy's complaint about her other Ariel Barbie. :-P I am tempted to go buy the others and hide them for Christmas & future bdays! Since the bodice is painted on, that's a lot less icing work to do on the cake.)
I'm not incredibly thrilled with her invitation, but it's still mommy-designed, and I whipped it up in about 15 minutes, so I guess not too shabby:
(I just colored out a few things to post it here, since this blog is public.)
We're inviting my two best friends from growing up & their kids and my parents' neighbors who play with Will & Sis.
So, invitations sent: check. Balloons & favors: check. Entertainment booked: check. Cook-out burgers & hot dogs: check. Ariel/Hotwheels/flower plates & napkins: check. I think we just need to actually bake the cake, and we're set!
