I started thinking about Lil’s birthday theme quite a few months ago and nothing compared to a rainbow Unicorn theme with a touch of roses. A friend (that ended up having three boys) once told me she wanted to have a little girl JUST so she could throw a unicorn birthday party…so I HAD to do this if not for Lil (and myself) then for Brittney.
Thank goodness my mom and dad came in town for the occasion. As everyone knows, it is awkward planning anything right now, because inviting people over even if the gathering is outdoors is questionable, so…I waited until the day of to give a shout out to a few of Liliane’s friends. Surprisingly, we had some takers. I frantically started to prepare for 12 guests instead of 5. Getting helium in balloons, propane for grilling, baking and decorating cookies, a cake, highchairs and tables all in one day isn’t a quick and easy thing. I learned a thing or two for the birthday parties to come…
Fun new random thing:
I am adding to the end of each blog post my favorite book of the month! This month it is Hillbilly Elegy. What a great book to read at this time during all the protests for equal rights!
