Miss Ella turned three last week! I can’t even believe that she’s this little human instead of the baby I picture her as in my head. It was hard for us to pin down a theme for this year, but I felt like Winnie the Pooh was a great classic theme that she would absolutely love.
The party took place at my parent’s house because ours is just not conducive to a large amount of people. Right as you walked in, we had a sign that I made on dollar store tag board. Isn’t it cute? The bees spell out the number three, which I came up with all on my own. Ella saw this before her party and was pretty concerned that piglet wasn’t with Winnie the Pooh. I guess they’re like peanut butter and jelly, they just go better together. But I told her that piglet was too scared to fly with pooh and the balloon. That seemed to work!
The balloons were an idea I found off of Pinterest. I also made Eyore, Rabbit, and Tigger. They were adorable, and only required some balloons, permanent marker, tissue paper, and some masking tape.
For the food, we had sandwiches, fruit, veggies, mini pigs in a blanket, chips, root beer floats, iced tea, soda, and cake.
Next up was the cake. My mother had these plastic characters from years ago when I was a child. The cake is in the shape of a three, which was a fun challenge for me. I made four nine-inch rounds and cut out the middles. Then I sliced the sides to make a three.
On the top is vanilla frosting (made green with food coloring), and on the sides is chocolate frosting with crushed chocolate chip cookies.
The treat buckets are from Target. There are some bubbles, colored bubble bath, silly drinking straws, and some fun little toys.
It was a wonderful time of celebrating such a beautiful girl who makes all of our hearts happy. Now for planning her bother’s first birthday party next month!
