Nonetheless, we celebrated yesterday and we hosted the party at our home. My son is always saying he wants to have a party, so a party we had. It's a very common thing in our family to go all out for birthdays; decorations, yummy food, presents and just good times. So, I set out on the decorations while shopping with my Mom on Saturday. We were at Hobby Lobby and saw the cutest decorations...a Circus! The plates and napkins were so cute, I couldn't pass them up. When I started decorating, one thing led to another and my mind kept thinking of little items to add to it so that it felt more like a real Circus. My son dug out little animals from his closet so we could decorate the table, we bought Circus Peanuts (those orange marshmallow candies), Burnt Peanuts and we popped some popcorn. I was looking for cotton candy, but none of the stores in our town had any in stock. That would have been an excellent addition.
After presents we had ice cream pie and cupcakes (just what the above two Yaa-who's needed). I had little cotton candy picks for the cupcakes and one little candle for my sister.
And every birthday dessert deserves to be served on a silver platter. Happy Birthday Sissy, I love you!!
