I know my daughter well, and she doesn't do great with strangers (ok, she doesn't do well with many other people other than myself. She has MAJOR separation anxiety!). So because of that, I knew I would be holding her throughout the party and I wouldn't be able to take any pictures (imagine my horror!!!). I hired a wonderful local photographer and she captured the party for me (Monica Wharton).
Because I love to plan celebrations, I will share with you many of the highlights....
(with the exception of the invitation, the following photos are Monica Wharton's)
These were the goody bags. They are ladybug themed "I Spy" bags which can be found here
The delicious cake (covered in fondant- my FAVORITE!) from the Danville Bakery
The smash cake!
Cute little ladybug topiaries (found here)
Yay- a picture with Mommy!
One of my best girlfriends always does a candy "bar"- love the idea (and so did the kids)!!!
One of the few smiles of the day
Look at the little toes!
And the crying begins (again.....)
