Meanwhile, LO's birthday planning is in full swing. I decided after a five minute trip to Michael's that I am going to make LO's cake! For no other reason than I want to and I think that I can and I like to take on stressful projects. This is what I would like:
This is similar to what I am going to shoot for:
This is my worst case scenario:
I am going to say RIGHT NOW that it will be cheaper to buy a cake by the time I am finished. I am also going to say RIGHT NOW that it will be easier, less stressful and avoid one, possibly two fights in my house. I don't care as I think I have a future in cake decorating based on my five minutes in the cake aisle.
I also bought this for LO's party:
We have a water table which I plan to fill with plastic balls so they can use the basket or just throw them. I plan to bring over the blue rocking dog as well. In addition there will be a balloon artiste making animals for the kids. I think we are good on entertainment and no one will run away saying they were terribly bored. There will also be plenty of color coordinated red and turquoise treats! I think that I look forward to her party more than anyone.
