Little Sesame turns 2 tomorrow and we had her party on Saturday. It was a hot, sunny day but luckily our backyard had plenty of shade.
Here’s her birthday banner in action.
There were plenty of friends for Mike and I to hang out with but little Sesame had some buddies to play with too.
There were cupcakes to be eaten. They’re carrot-pineapple cupcakes with a little cream cheese frosting and since the birthday girl loves birds (or bees, as she calls them), I decorated them with bird’s nests made from kataifi (shredded phyllo dough) and little jelly bean eggs. The frosting is colored with natural colorings- raspberry for pink, blueberry for lavender and turmeric for the yellow. I made a ton of cupcakes and only had one left after everyone went home. I want some more!
There were also a few presents to be opened. Sesame loved all her things but her stuffed dolphin and Hello Kitty purse and wallet were definitely the biggest hits.
I actually made her pretty party dress! It’s the first thing I’ve sewed using a real pattern and with things like gathers and buttonholes in a long time. I got the pattern from that*darn*kat on Etsy and it was really easy to make. I want one in my size!
It was a fun birthday party and I can’t believe my little girl is (almost) 2!
