Recently I’ve started planning the girls 1st & 3rd Birthday party, and if you know me and parties, than you know I tend to go overboard.
Not overboard as in, I’m renting a zoo and a circus, but enough to make me question whether or not I’m actually planning a wedding…or a birthday party…for a baby.
I really do love throwing the birthday parties because honestly I don’t get out much. I’m a stay at home mom who cleans 24/7, despite how my house may look, I live vicariously through trash tv, and I’m surrounded by pink princess toys and sassy attitudes on a daily basis. I am head over heals in love with my life and my family.
But I also love to be creative and work on projects, so it’s only fair that I drive my family crazy for a good 2 months as I gather and create projects until my fingers bleed and I’m crying.
(Please ignore the intense dramatic explanation…)
So if you are wondering what this year’s birthday theme is going to be, I urge you to look through the past year of posts and pay attention to my almost 3 year olds outfit of choice on a daily basis.
Luckily the majority of the things we own in this household are pink, including our vaccuum, so the decorations itself pretty much taken care of. BUT the food has become a challenge for me.
It is all going to be Pink…ish.
This doesn’t mean I’m going to be dyeing foods left and right with pink food coloring, but I’m going to be making a lot of food with naturally colored pink ingredients.
Naturally the first thing that came to my mind was Pink Lemonade. But since we’ve already been there with this Sparkling Strawberry Lemonade, I thought we could explore a different path.

Next year I think I’m going to call my friend Chuckie Cheese for some party planning help… 🙂
