I am finally getting around to posting about Gwen's 2nd birthday party! I am determined to always make a big deal of Derek and Gwen's birthday, since it falls right after Christmas. It's hard having a Christmastime birthday because people tend to forget with the busyness of the holidays.
We didn't have a "party" for Gwen this year, per se - we just had some of our immediate family over for cake, and to give her presents. Still, I see no reason why I can't have a birthday theme anyway! This year I had a couple packages of pink lemonade cookie mix in my cupboards, so I decided to go with a Pink Lemonade theme. It turned out really cute, and I think this was one of the easiest parties I've done!
For the party I just got some yellow and pink balloons and streamers.
I used some old scrapbook paper and made a few labels and a birthday sign for Gwen.
I made pink lemonade cookies from a mix, and I used the same mix to make a pink lemonade cheesecake - which was so good! I wish I knew how to replicate it without a mix.
Of course we also had to have pink lemonade.
I put a yellow tablecloth on the table, and got some lemons to add to the decor.
Gwen and I got all dressed up in pink and yellow! I just happened to have the perfect yellow dress and pink hair bow for Gwen's birthday outfit. I told you, everything just came together!
For those of you follow my photo blog, head on over there to see more pictures of Miss G at her birthday party! She is pretty adorable. I'll send out a link in my next newsletter as well!
