Having the right birthday party supplies can make or break an event. This is especially true if you have a kid. Everything has to be right. You have to have the right goody bags, the right ice cream, the right decorations, and most importantly, the right birthday cake. Buying birthday cakes isn't as easy as it used to be. Nowadays, people are so health-conscious that it is often hard to find something that everyone can agree on. Nevertheless, usually my daughter picks out what she wants. After all, her birthday is the one time of year where everyone celebrates her. She should have a choice of how it is done.
Daughter wants to do her own birthday greeting cards
This year, she even did the birthday greeting cards herself. We had just gotten back from the store where we were looking at birthday cakes, and she announced that she wanted to do her own birthday invitations. At first, I was naturally skeptical. My daughter is quite a creative girl, but she is not the most organized person, and she doesn't have much of a sense of follow through. Often, she'll start a project only to leave it neglected and unfinished. I figured that this would be the case with the birthday invites, but I let her take a chance and try it. I figured that we still had plenty of time to send out store-bought ones if she did not finish.
My Little Pony cards and cake
It turns out that the birthday invitations were amazing. She had particularly liked the way the birthday cake she picked out looked. It was covered with My Little ponies, and quite well designed. She drew it on the birthday invitations, showing everyone that, if they came to her party, they would get a big piece of my Little pony birthday cake. Needless to say, this approach worked. Every single one of her friends showed up for her birthday celebration.
One of the best ones
It was not one of the best birthday cakes we ever got. It was a yellow cake, and nothing special. Nevertheless, my daughter is at that age when the only thing that is important is frosting. The birthday cake had frosting in abundance. It even have little ice cream cones filled up with frosting in different colors. The letters were made of candy, and almost everything on my cake was edible besides the candles and the My Little Ponies. All in all, everyone had a lot of fun eating all the sugar they could.
