have a berry good time

Due largely to the picking of 23 lbs. of strawberries, little e’s birthday party this year was (loosely) berry themed–a berry covered cake:

Berries to snack on, strawberry wafer cookies, and strawberry Twizzlers to use as straws to suck down berry lemonade:

Due to my inherent laziness and lack of ability to plan ahead, the decorations were minimal.

Party hats that my mom and I constructed:

“Strawberry” balloons:

A Happy Birthday banner that I lovingly constructed out of cardstock and felt.  Unfortunately, the wind kept whipping it all over the place:

As she doesn’t really have any friends of her own, save her cousin and one other sweet little family friend, her brother’s friends that she always plays with filled in the void.  So, a sweet strawberry party quickly became a raucous affair.  Maybe by next year little girl will have a few more friends of her own so that her birthday party will be an event of her own.
