The One Where She turned Four

Olivia turned 4 years old on June 22. While I did not write her a birthday letter and blog about her birthday on her birthday this year, rest assured we partied in style and its sure to be a birthday she won’t forget! Having boy/girl twins its hard to throw parties because they have to be gender neutral. Well I guess they don’t HAVE to be but I hate dislike birthday parties enough with out having to throw two different ones on the same day or even the same week. Twice a year is really pushing it for me :)

So, I’ve never been able to have a really girlie kinda party and this year I thought it would be super duper cool to do a fancy tea party for my baby girl. She LOVES to play tea party, we play it often and when I mentioned it to her she was thrilled! So I stalked Pinterest for a few days pinning any and everything that caught my eye and took ideas (big or small) from several different pictures and threw the best stinking tea party 7th Ave has ever seen :)

 I made this cake and I didn’t threaten to cancel all birthdays for the rest of our lives while
in the process either. It was the easiest time I’ve ever had making a cake and it only took 8 years
to achieve this goal!! You may remember the twins 5th birthday that included the Barbie cake
and the Angry Birds cake and my admittance of seeing myself as cake baker extrodinare when
in reality, I’m so not :)

These pictures are all fantastic...amazing cake, beautiful decorations, simply lovely. BUT, the VERY BEST THING ABOUT THIS POST is that pair of gloves on James!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

That is so adorable. You need to come and do a party for mine. :) I will pin these great ideas, and then it's just like whatever. I have accepted I don't have the awesome party gene. Ruth turns 5 next Friday, and she would LOVE this.

I totally agree with Becky though, James in gloves is too funny.

You never cease to amaze me! This blog certainly needs to be somewhere in a children's magazine!

You did an AmAzInG JOB!!! The cake is beautiful and yes, you have progressed in this skill for sure... (personally remembering mickey #1)
