Ruffles & Roses

My little girl turns 2 this week and we celebrated a week early with a Ruffles and Roses birthday party.  (I like taking advantage of having a girl).  She had an absolute ball and couldn't believe all of her friends were in one place.  I took a LOT of pictures and had trouble narrowing down the list of photos to post, so I figure the best thing to do is post all of my favorites ;)  *Be forewarned this post includes a LOT of pink!
 My parents have a great entertaining space - I wish I could host an event here every week.
 The kids table.  It's really a wonder what you can turn an old lego table with a science fair project board on top into!
 Yes, each girl had a place card.
Sandwich boxes
I love these mason jar kids' cups.  I took the flat metal lid off and replaced it with a laminated piece of paper punched with a hole for the straw.  Much more colorful.
Strawberry yogurt parfaits - Adelaide's favorite!
Chicken salad croissants
Dessert Table
The little girls' favor bags on the left held together with a barrette.  They also got to take home a sugar cookie with their name on it.
I found these fabric roses on sale at a craft store and just had to use them, so I found some brown ribbon and made the girls a bow to include in their bags.
I made the cupcake stands from little wooden candle sticks and pre-cut wood circles.  So easy and cute.
These are Starbucks frappuccino glasses I saved and took the labels off after making my husband drink them.  He had no trouble helping me out with this ;)
Talk about a labor of love.  These rose pomanders and cupcake wrapper poms took SO much time to make.  But well worth it.  I'm going to hang them in A's little girl room eventually.  I just love them.
I made the accordion banner out of one of my Dad's Real Estate study books from the 70's. 
We moved the kids table up to the porch when the rain came where the girls worked on their coloring :)
Love this sweet little girl and can't believe she's 2!
