birthday party

is it already the 17th?
didn't i talk about a giveaway being
held here today?
i know, i know
but not gonna lie
summer has gotten in my way
and i've completely lost track of time
so how about we surprise you
with a giveaway in the next 2 weeks?
sound fair?
that way i don't have to feel guilty
when the next date rolls around and i'm still not ready

now that's off my chest
my sweet little LuLu (hence the blog name)
had a big girl birthday this weekend

here are a few of her
2 year old pictures

headbands by Cozette Couture
romper by Pearl and Pauper
photos by Missi

and now on to the party
i did a little dessert table
cause my baby loves her sugar
nothing too fancy or too expensive
everything was pretty much made by me

a little bit vintage
a little big girlie

waffle cones dipped in white chocolate
and then sprinkles

pink cupcakes with pretty little
felt pennant flags
(just glued onto toothpicks)

white chocolate dipped pretzels
with sprinkles of course

a simple chocolate cake
with a paper pennant flag on two sticks

a banner with pictures of her
and doilies
held on by mini clothespins

i wrapped a cardboard "C"
in yarn and crocheted a flower
(this was my favorite thing i did)

pink lemonade of course

and the sweet girl with her sugar table

i hope you liked it
lots of sugar was consumed
and my baby gal probably won't remember
much of it, but that's what pictures are for!
i'm sure i'll be linking up, so check out all the parties


  1. awwww darling! it all looks so cute and yummy :)
    great job gen!!

  2. That's adorable Gentri! Good job with everything. Cadence looked adorable.

  3. My little one just had her 2nd birthday earlier this month, too! Your little girl is adorable! I love the outfit and all of the dessert table details!

  4. Loving the yarn-wrapped "C"! Of course I'm biased, it's my favorite letter. I made a yarn-wrapped ampersand but it was so complicated to wrap. I had to cut it up into 3 pieces & glue back together!
