Amelia's 2nd Birthday Party
The party festivities started early on Saturday morning. The theme for Amelia's second birthday party was The Very Hungry Caterpillar...red and green were everywhere!
I, initially, wanted to have the party elsewhere but then squashed all those ideas and decided to have it at our house. I'm so glad that we had it at the house because Amelia got to be an active participate in the preparation and it was so sweet to watch.
We made the mini-cupcakes the the round cake before bed on Saturday so they would be ready to add the icing first thing. Amelia helped add cake batter to the cupcake holders and helping Mommy watch for when they were finished baking.
The decorations were pretty simple. We had a balloon caterpillar in our doorway, our beanbag toss game (remember us painting that weeks ago), our homemade favor bags and lots of confetti sprinkled around the house.
