I just can't help myself. I love any excuse to throw a party. And I like to party big. And I love themes. And my girlies' birthdays are no exception.
If you are not already familiar with the story, Pinkalicous is a book about a girl who eats too many pink cupcakes and acquires a serious case of Pinkititis, meaning she turns pink. The cure is to eat green food. Anything. As long as it is green.
All my girlies are wild about Pinklalicous. They have Pinkalicious dolls and we've read all the books about 187,000 times (roughly).
The party was perfectly pinkariffic and everyone seemed to have a good time.
Mental note for next year: Plan this party much earlier in November (her real birthday is November 9). Much too close to Thanksgiving, but our schedule simply didn't permit it any sooner...
A few highlights:
Green food goodie bags.
Ladybug guarding her pink cupcakes.
Lola. An unexpected guest, thanks to my sister and her family.
Birthday girl working on her Pinkalicious crown.
Getting ready for "Pin the Cherry on the Cupcake."
(Which seems to be a staple at our parties. In recent years we have also played "Pin the Nose on Larry the Cucumber" and "Pin the Heart on the Tinman." My girls really love this game...)
My sweet hubby is such a good sport about all the pink...
Party time. Putting my game face on.
And now that the party is over...
Grabbing a coffee, working on my grocery list and making a mental shift to turkey and pumpkin pie.
Happy Monday, Friends.
