We had Ellie’s birthday party today! We invited a few friends and family to come spend the afternoon with us. Since we’re still in our apartment, we decided to have an open house so that we wouldn’t have so many people in our small place all at the same time.
I ordered some customized confetti from etsy, but then I made the rest of the decorations. I had so much fun putting it all together for our sweet girl.
We had sandwiches catered from Jimmy John’s. We ordered a birthday cake from Mulberries’ Cake Shop – the same place that made our wedding cake.
The food and the company were great. Ellie had a wonderful birthday party!
Ellie tore up her birthday cake – though I’m pretty sure she only got a small taste of the delicious cake! Maybe next year she’ll enjoy the cake a little more!
Here’s a small video of her making a mess of her cake:
Later we opened presents and then Ellie hammed it up playing with her toys and the balloons!
What a precious girl! She brings so much joy to us!
