She's seven and wanted a girly little party at home with a couple of friends. She picked out the decor, the cake flavor (strawberry), the dinner menu (spaghetti, cucumbers, and lime-aid, because one of her friends likes green), and the games with much deliberation and list making. It was fun to see her enjoy the party planning so much and see how opinionated she was about everything, right down to where they would sit and which balloon should be tied at each chair.
I let the girls help make the cake, which was really fun. Eden was quite the little baker and a faithful assistant until the end.
These three amigos were just too cute giggling together
Messy but delicious. You can't go wrong with strawberries and cream.
Judging by her face, I'd say she had a good day. We love this little girl who is quickly becoming a young lady full of grace and deep thoughts and lots of sweetness.
