Madeline's Birthday Party

Today instead of yummy tailgating recipes, I am sharing my little girl's 3rd birthday party! Our theme was cupcakes! The idea was to have the children decorate gift bags and cupcakes...then they could take their completed cupcakes home with them in the cute decorated bags =) I had so much fun at this party watching the children come up with their masterpieces =)

When the children arrived, I had them decorate their gift bags. I had markers, glitter pens, and stickers for them to use. Once everyone completed their decorating, I brought out the cupcakes. I baked A LOT of cupcakes and iced them all. I then had an assortment of toppings for them to use...gummy worms, m&ms, sprinkles and crushed up oreos. We gave the children each a spoon and let their creativity flow.

Below are a few of the pictures from the party:

What a great web log. I spend hours on the net reading blogs, about tons of various subjects. I have to first of all give praise to whoever created your theme and second of all to you for writing what i can only describe as an fabulous article. I honestly believe there is a skill to writing articles that only very few posses and honestly you got it. The combining of demonstrative and upper-class content is by all odds super rare with the astronomic amount of blogs on the cyberspace.
