i've been without internet for a long time but finally have it back. i am so behind in blogging that i don't know how to catch up. but my goal is to do it. i have to blog my birthday, easter, disneyland with the family, etc. i thought instead of trying to catch up tonight i will just go backwards and share a recent 5th birthday party that i helped plan with a friend. she really did most of it but it was so fun to contribute.

one day awhile back i happened upon the cutest ice cream parlour party (from eat drink chic) and i fell in love with all the little pink details. so when my friend said she wanted an ice cream bar at her daughters party i couldn't wait to share this one with her.  

my photo won't enlarge if you click it but if you go to eat drink chic's site here it will

every detail is so cute and pink and perfect for a little girl's party! her site has all the label downloads for free here.

ella's birthday turned out so cute and it was so fun to be apart of!
stripey straws here and here. i'm pretty sure the silver trays are from the dollar store and the cotton candy bags are from wal-mart.
my friend julie (birthday girls mom) homemade the pink cookie flowers
i cannot tell you how good the mini cupcakes tasted. chocolate cake filled with chocolate chips and cream cheese frosting. uuuummmmm yummm!
glass candy dishes at michaels
i really liked julie's scalloped spoon holders
party compete with face painting by the talented hannah
all the kids painted their own bird house
fruit cabobs with sugared ends made by julie's sister
ella the birthday girl. she is so cute. i used to watch her when she was just 2 and i've always loved her. she's like so cute with a squeeky little voice and girly but can sure hold her own because she has 2 older brothers.

now i wanna have a ice cream parlour party, wanna come????
