My baby girl turned FIVE a couple weeks ago. I feel like if I blink she’ll be off to college tomorrow…*sob*. Ahem, carrying on! She requested a dolly party, then changed it to a princess party, then said a dolly princess party would be great, haha! So this is our interpretation of that!
This is the completed exterior of the Estoril Dollhouse. One day I’d like to replace the door and windows with wood, but for now, a coat of spray paint will have to do!
We’re going to tour the upstairs bedroom and nursery today! This is a large open attic space basically, so it’s a combined bedroom and nursery. I think it works well that way, since J is such an avid interior decorator. The wide open space makes it lots of fun to rearrange furniture!
My little boy turned one?!?!!! How on earth did that happen so fast? I’ve seen lots of Moustache Bash/Little Man parties, and knew that we had to have one for E. Pinterest to the rescue! I seriously can look back at my Pinterest page and basically see my party there. SO much inspiration!
So, you’ve seen the Chocolate Moustaches here,
These cookies were perfect for our Little Man birthday party – no decorating required! I was debating between these and sugar cookies, but it came down to time, and these were fine just as they are – no decorating!
Since I couldn’t find a moustache-shaped cookie cutter anywhere, I had to improvise. This was originally a round biscuit cutter that I had previously made into a strawberry shape. Since it was never going to be a perfect circle again, I figured it was a good candidate for reshaping. It was easily bent into a moustache, and then I just turned the ends up a bit more once the cookies were on the baking sheet.
My little boy turned ONE this past weekend and we threw him a Little Man party, or, a Moustache Bash 🙂 I’ll share more details of the party later, but I just wanted to post about these moustaches first.
They look deceptively easy. And really, they were, once I figured them out. If you browse Pinterest much, you’ll see these things all over the place. So I bought the mold, the long lollipop sticks and some dark and milk chocolate.
Little bit of a throwback Thursday here. I hosted a baby shower way back in…March? April? Ha, it’s been THAT long. Anyway, it was the Big Top theme. Perfect for a little boy 🙂
I found these little cardboard popcorn boxes at Michaels, and it all started coming together. We had plain and caramel popcorn (I love this recipe), pogo sticks and mustard, lollipop-shaped cookies, fruit, spring rolls, sandwich roll-ups, cupcakes and more cookies! The lion, giraffe and elephant are all from the dollar store 🙂 I put the lollipop cookies into mason jars. Easy-peasy!
