"A birthday party with butterflies. That's what I want when I turn five, mom." And so, a butterfly birthday party she got.
Sweet and simple. Less is more. Right?!
Mission accomplished. In spite of hurricane Joaquin - with wind and rain all week but the day of her party.
Simple. That's how we operate.
Because my husband is a rock-star he agreed to hold the pinata if it broke too early; I stuffed it with stickers, bubble gum, and raisins instead of just candy; and with gale-force winds outside the garage ended up working just fine instead of using a tree.
Um, no, actually, I can't. And because I'm too cheap to pay a friend $40 to make one for you, we'll have our local grocery store manage butterfly cupcakes instead.
All the right colors. All the right arrangement. Totally a win. (Phew.)
Sweet and simple - it really is true.
