Thursday was Annaliese's fourth birthday, and her best buddy Kylie turned five the day before her. Valerie and I decided to throw a joint party this year since many of their friends overlap, and that was held this afternoon. We decided not to go with a character-based party and instead picked an ice cream theme. Carlin put together a great invitation for us. Valerie researched party games, recipes and bargain shopping. My goal was to make them matching shirts!
I found this adorable ice cream cone applique from Sew Terific. Actually it was originally a one scoop cone, but I modified the design to make it a two-scoop.
Here are the girls before the party began:
Valerie used the ice cream cone design throughout the party...
We played pin the cherry on the cone, and she did a great job reproducing the image. (And obviously Annaliese did not win this game, though in another blindfolded game she scooped cotton balls from one bowl to another like no one else!)
And Valerie decorated their personal cakes with two-scoop ice cream cones, too:
Despite rain that kept us indoors, things went well and it was a fun party!
