I know I am over a week late, but I had a good reason. I have been enjoying some time away with Lee and Reese. I started to write this post several times while we were away, but each time I sat down I had heavy eyes. We are safe and sound back home with suitcases to unpack and laundry to wash.
Now onto Reese's Sweet Party.......
I use an old framed print for the back drop of the dessert table. I spray painted the frame pink, removed the glass and covered the print with a piece of vintage sheet. The aqua "R" is from Reese's room. I used aqua mason jars (thanks to my mom and dad for letting me have them) to hold fabric pinwheels. I filled the jars with candy and wooden spools of thread.
Cake bunting made from vintage sheet scraps. Lee requested a Ho-Ho cake, and it was one of the big stresses-I have made it numerous times, but the top layer decided to break into 3 pieces and fall off. I was running to Target to get eggs and bake another layer at 11:00 and the party started at 1:00. It came together in time thankfully!
Reese made it very clear that she wanted pink cupcakes with sprinkles to put on the cupcake stand (found at Macy's). I made the pinwheels out of paper and glued a cute, little button in the middle. I then attached them to sucker sticks.
A big thanks to Aunt Denise for making Reese's Cinderella cake. She was so thrilled when she saw it for the first time!
Cute vintage cards. The one on the left was from me and Lee. The one on the right was from my sweet friend, Jessica.
Jessica also made Reese an adorable hat. I LOVE it and it makes my heart smile every time I look at it. She sells them if you need one :)
Reese was beyond thrilled with this little chick that came with her hat. She kept sneaking it off the table every time I turned my back...Thanks for a special treat, Jessica! Reese loved all the fun, girly thing you picked out Miss Grace!
Also, Papaw and Mamaw brought this fun blow up house for all the kiddos....it was a huge hit! Thanks Papaw and Mamaw!!!
Happy Birthday Sweet Reese. I am so glad that you enjoyed your party...even if it wasn't what I had planned orginally!
