birthday craftiness

We hosted a “dress-up” party for Stella’s girlfriends at our house this morning. I feel a bit like I’ve been hit by a truck. Individually, they are sweet, polite little girls. All together, in our two-bedroom apartment, they’re like a pink, sparkly Tasmanian devil.

We kept the decor and such low key, but Stella and I did make a garland for the door.

And we made these cute balloon cake toppers.

I ruined the cake. I used three frosting colors to make an ombré effect, but once I put the sugar on top it covered up the lightest shade. I was so mad. It still tasted good though. The cake was this one, which has become my go-to chocolate recipe. And the frosting was this vanilla version.

We had a great time, but I’m glad it’s over.
