My little girl is quite a little lady!
She loves pink & lavendar . . . whimsical ladybugs & butterflies . . . hearts & pretty bows . . . flowers . . . and all things shiny!
Her femininity at such a young age makes being the mom of this little girl so much fun!
She even makes decorating our home ~ whether for a holiday or special occasion ~ or just because ~ a delight! At the young age of 3, she notices and appreciates every detail . . . and comments with pure excitement.
So when it came time to planning her 3rd birthday party ~ I was sure to remember all that she adores!
A unique and special party was planned that started early in the morning with waffles. Yes, we hosted a "Birthday Waffle Breakfast" that included an 18-item topping bar fit for a princess . . . rich syrups, ice cream, fruits, various chocolates, sprinkles galore, and Valentine heart candies.
Tables were covered in white linens and pink with white polka dot covers. Buckets of pink flowers ~ each holding tall standing beaded hearts ~ centered the tables. Valentine candies were generously sprinkled about ~ only to add extra fun and splashes of color. A special, hand-made "Happy Birthday" banner was streamed across a tall armoire ~ full of vibrancy and charm. Chairs were generously wrapped with pink tulle ~ and then finished off with big bows. And finally, feminine ivory chargers supported beautiful white plates of which guests were invited to fill with vanilla confetti and/or rich, chocolate waffles. YUM!

We couldn't end her party without cake! My extremely talented and dearest friend ~ Alex ~ who finds inspiration from other Cake Artists and then designs & creates her own cakes ~ made this adorable ladybug and garden-themed cake! She adorned the whimsical two-tiered cake with all those things that my little girl loves . . . . ladybugs, butterflies, caterpillars, snails, and other whimsy critters. A site to behold, with a most adorable ladybug perched atop ~ my little lady absolutely loved her birthday cake, as seen by her big, beautiful smile every time she saw it!
More fun treats were to be had . . . Ladybug Cake Pops! I lovingly made these strawberry cake pops with a special surprise tucked inside ~ a maraschino cherry! Dipped in white chocolate and adorned with a petite ladybug and green sprinkles to look like grass ~ these treats were also hit!
Happy 3rd Birthday
my sweet, little girl!
