I had been planning an ice cream social birthday party for her. We didnt have the money to do as big of a party as her first with all the food. We kept it simple with the ice cream sundae bar, cake and cupcakes, and drinks. I made the ice cream cupcakes with some help from Kamii and the beautiful cake was made by my good friend Tracy.We invited mostly family and close friends. It was a perfect day.
My friend Juliet came over really early to help set up the sundae bar. Sarah and N'tima came and hung ice cream garland and helped finished set up. It was really nice to have all the help. My Mom and mother in law were chasing around the girls getting them ready as well. I of course was planning and setting up until the last minute and needed to throw on some makeup. I always procrastinate and end up looking like a mess by the time people show up.
Ryan's cousin Tara loaned us the toddler jump house. Olivia LOVED it! She barely left the jumper. She was so cute and red faced from it. We had to trick her to come in at the end of the day so we could put it away.
The kids loved all the toppings and enjoyed playing outside. We had a bubble station and bean bag toss. My father in law made the bean bag toss and my mother in law made the bean bags. My friend Sarah made an awesome ice cream pinata. It was a big hit with the kids.
Olivia had a wonderful time and we thank everyone who came and celebrated with us.
