This weekend I threw a little party for the girls in my daughter’s youth group. It was a little Back-to-School bash. I knew I wanted it to be pretty and totally girly. I’m not really good at over the top girly. I have 3 brothers, so lace and flowers were really not my thing. I wanted this to feel a little more on the shabby chic and feminine side, and I think that was achieved.
We had treats, a little devotional and then a little craft. I had the girls all make their own personalized pencil cases with pom poms.
I did lots of baking this weekend and this is what I served:
Fresh Strawberry Cupcakes
Mini Cheesecakes topped with Blackberry Curd
Sugar cookies topped with Pink Buttercream
Homemade Vanilla Bean Marshmallows
A mini candy bar
Sparkling Pink Lemonade
I kept the decorations really simple, I used the pom pom bunting from Olivia’s first birthday and I also made a really quick bunting out of some cute floral print doilies that I bought when we were in Ireland (be sure to check out all their fun patterned doilies). And then I used some cute washi tape (from Michael’s) that matched my doilies really well, to decorate the the milk bottles and straws.
