THREE is TERRIFIC

January 24, 2011...Emma turns THREE!

Our celebrations started on Saturday. Emma hosted several friends and her cousins for a Snowflake Princess party.

Although there is not snow on the ground here right now, guests were greeted by snowflakes galore!

Emma's Patsy made her a beautiful Snowflake Princess dress just for her big day.

And Emma's MiMi and her great-grandmother made her a princess castle cake:

It was so yummy! Those towers are made out of rice krispies so that you could also eat them...delicious!

I worked with Amber from Party On Boutique to create the printable paper decorations! She did a great job, and the colors were exactly what I wanted.

We had so much fun creating original works of art with pre-painted blue canvases, snowflake foam stickers and snowman sponges.

I had a few other activities planned for the princesses, but they just wanted to play with Emma's kitchen instead.

Look at these sweethearts...the most grown up and the youngest princesses at the party...

After playing, we all sang "Happy Birthday" to Emma, and she blew out her candles...one.at.a.time!

Everyone waited so patiently for the cake...

Emma especially LOVES icing...she left the cake, but not a spot of icing was left on her piece.

And the ladies took home a treat bag with a snowflake wand, snowflake tiara, candy, and custom paper doll set from Studio 71 Designs.

Emma actually told me last night that she loved her party. I am so happy that she did. Since we missed Emma's first birthday with her, I hope that all of her birthdays are wonderful for the rest of her life.
