M requested a Tinkerbell themed birthday party a couple of months ago. I had a lot of fun planning it with him. This was his first “real” birthday party, as opposed to just family coming over. Usually I do the specialized cake thing and homemade decorations, but we went a little more commercial this year and I was ok with that.
M was insistent that we have red velvet cake. I think some of his friends were a little scared of it because it’s a non-traditional color for young kids.
We had a “fancy tea” of apple cider, muffins, and fruit. Then the kids got to make their own prince/princess crowns.
Afterwards, we had cake and ice cream, then opened presents. 90 minutes. Low key.
It was a fun party and I’m proud of M for what a great job he did. It was awesome to see him having fun
