Party time!

As you may have noticed in the past I like to go all out for birthdays. So I decorated a little different than usual, but I think it turned out fun. We were going kind of Rapunzel themed. Since I don't do characters, I mostly went with flowers. I hand sewed fabric flowers and hung them, also hand sewn fabric garlands, which took some time, but I thought was a cute addition. The tissue paper balls, I already had, so why not use them.

I stole this idea, (Thanks Chelsie). Except she used 12 and I used about 24 of her growing up, It's hard to choose when they're all so cute.
This is kind of, one of the trends in birthday party deco, (if there is such a thing). So I had to do it as well.
I even made the party hats, because I didn't want cheesy character ones. That was easier than I thought.
Here's the birthday girl!

I had a hard time deciding what to give her, because she already has all of Reese's stuff. And Christmas was just barely, but we figured out a few things.
This is mostly what happened, Reese, Kennedy and Hadley, opening and playing with her toys, and her trying to see.
This is what I bought her, although everyone thought it was a bad idea. Yes, it is a little steep, but I think she'll like it as she gets a bit older.
I was so preoccupied, I didn't take any pictures of any of the party guests. But Tayler took this one of Reese and her bf Macklin. Reese has a total crush on him I think. Tayler's got some competition.
Here's the cake. I think this is my favorite one I've done so far.
I didn't want to make an actual Rapunzel, (since you saw how good the incredibles turned out), so that's supposed to be her hair coming out the window. And that's little Pascal.
Here's the smash cake, Ashley (Jeremy's sister) gave me the pan for Christmas, and I was excited to use it.
We went next door, to Jeremy's grandpa's house, for desert and cake, since they can't come to us.

I had no doubt Rylee would go for her cake, she's such a grabber. And I was right.

She mostly ate it like this, and she had to come up for air. It was so funny! The cake was clear up her nose. I loved it.
This doesn't really show how messy she got. Luckily the frosting and cake were mostly white.
I know she mostly doesn't know what was going on, but she knew something special was going on. And I think she had fun. Altogether it was a great party!

Pretty decorations, and that cake is amazing. It's so tall, how in the world did you manage it. I loved the photos of her eating the cake!
