Kristin's Birthday Party

Kristin had a Strawberry Shortcake Birthday this year. I found these little Strawberry Shortcake puzzles (which Kristin happens to be putting together right now) and used them as invitations.

Here she is waiting for her little friends to come. I love this picture...

My mom made all of the girls a personalized apron. The girls LOVED them. Aren't they cute?

I found all of these great SS items at the Dollar Tree and Target. We (I say We, but really Heidi made them while I was in Korea) made individual cakes for all the girls to decorate. This was a HUGE hit! I found a bunch of stuff to decorate them with. M&M's and strawberry fruit snacks, and they all had their own tube of red frosting. I got cake boxes, and the girls all took their cakes home with them.

We stuck candles in Kristin's cake and sang her Happy Birthday! It took her quite a few tries to blow the candles out - which is nice for the photographer!

We opened presents and the girls played, and then we sent them home with a huge bag of Strawberry Shortcake goodies! I will say, I went a little overboard with the goodie bags. Oh well, it was cute. I can't believe she's 4! Happy Birthday Kristin!

You really outdid yourself, but the party was a huge success...I can't believe you were up to doing one the day after you got back from Korea! You are amazing!

I can't believe she's 4 either. What a fun birthday. I love the aprons and such a fun idea to decorate their cakes. I can't wait to have a girly birthday party one of these days. I'll for sure have to borrow some of your ideas as always you creative genius!
