Handmade Pink and Purple Princess Themed Birthday

My Baby Girl turned 3! Three years full of joy, laughter, exciting moments, and challenging times for us as parents. I wouldn't trade it for anything. Becoming a 'Mami' (Mommy) has been the best thing that has ever happened to me.

A few months ago she told me she wanted a Pink and Purple 'queque' (cake) with 'cremie' (cream). She also mentioned she wanted a Princess cake. So basically she chose her theme this year.

My Mom made all the pom-poms out of tissue paper and arranged the balloons into bouquets that hung right above the back drop.

The cake was the product of lots of team work. My Mom made the sugar flowers, my husband baked and decorated the cake, and I made the buttercream frosting for it.

Around the table I used sparkly pink tulle to contrast the purple plastic cloth. It looked so cute!

My daughter wore ruffled pants that I made using Viola Lee's Pattern. For the top, I made matching ruffles and sewed it as a collar to the shirt.  I also made the party hat for her with matching fabric.  She looked like a real princess wearing her favorite color, purple.

Here she is showing us how old she is now.

Happy Birthday, my princess!!! This will be a great year for you with lots of new things to learn!
