Polka-dot Birthday Party

Marisa had her birthday party today! It was a polka-dot birthday party. I got the idea from her birthday party invitation I made. Everything was pink, orange, green, or red and everything was polka-dots. Her cupcakes and birthday cake were polka-dots and had polka-dot sprinkles. The ballons, the confetti, and the decorations were polka-dots, and to complete the theme, her party favors were bubbles with the outside decorated with polka-dots!
I also made the cupcakes, the birthday cake, and the chocolate frosting. It was my first time doing all that and they turned out delicious! Much thanks goes out to Haylie my niece for helping me make, bake, and decorate!
The party was suppossed to be at the pool but, of course, on the day of her party, sunny California decides it wants to be cold. So we moved the party to my sister-in-law's house and it turned out beautifully. Thank you soooo much Matt and Kari for opening up your house! We love you guys so much and we don't know what we would do without you guys.

Yummy cupcakes with chocolate whipped frosting and pink sprinkles!

Lots of yummy food!

Strawberry lemonade!

Happy Birthday!

Lots of pink, green, orange, and red polka-dots!

Marisa invited family of course to her party along with her two little friends Emma and Cruz and their parents. They loved playing on the trampoline, with legos, and the balloons! They are all so cute together.

Thank you to everybody near and far for the birthday wishes and gifts. Marisa is so lucky to be loved by so many. Thank you for making her day a special one!

Banging on the drum!

Finally, Marisa loved her second birthday cake. She knew exactly what to do this time around. She loved her cake so much in fact, that once she was full she just laid back in the highchair and lounged. haha

Blowing out the candle!

Digging right in!

Oh yeah!

One happy and full tummy!

Hey it's Kristen. I just ran across your blog and I hope you don't mind me commenting. I have often wondered how things are going in your new life, and am so happy to look at your blog and see everything is awesome. Your daughter is beautiful, and you look stunning (as usual!). I'm soooo happy for you, and hope everything continues to be so great in your life!
