My Tiny Dancer

My daughter just turned three and started ballet class. I can't believe how fast the time goes. Just two years ago she was my tiny dancer and we were celebrating her first birthday...now she's a little girl who is sweet, sassy, funny, generous and incredibly wise beyond her years. She tells me I'm her best friend every day. I'm the luckiest mom in the world. I love you baby girl!

And now...

Backyard Tea Party

My baby girl turned three last week and requested a tea party. Here are a few of the photos from the event, which we had in my brother's backyard.

My first teapot cake. I made it using the Wilton ball pan.

The girls decorated their own tea hats with birds, flowers, bumble bees and jewels.
I made sugar cubes using candy molds. It was so quick and easy and they came out really cute.
For the menu, we served PBJs, ham and cheese, curry chicken salad on croissants, deviled eggs, crudite platter, scones with jam, fresh berries, Caprese salad and pink lemonade. Everyone chose their own tea pot and (decaf) tea flavor.
I made a teapot pinata using this handy online tutorial.
