Baby: birthday party!


We had a FABULOUS birthday party for our princess Sofia! 🙂

The perfect matching cake.

I found it online and it was just how I wanted~~~

decoration was minimal because it has been busy season at work so I didn’t have  time nor energy to do big planning (nor that I’ve ever done any!)

The party was held on Sunday October 6th at noon because Star arrived on October 5th. Mom and I spent half of Saturday cooking

we set up a Time Capsule station where guests  write down predictions of Sofia in 17 years! 🙂 We had a lot of fun with that.

More than 30 friends showed up to the party. The birthday girl behaved really well. She greeted to everyone, played with other kids and had fun the whole day~ 🙂 I was more than happy to be hosting. Many friends congratulated me for the nicely put food table and the ambiance, they even thought I made the cake myself. 🙂 hahahaha…

I am amazed by how this little girl, who slowly knows I’m her mom and maybe the one who loves her the most in the entire world, could have the power of bringing happiness and joy to our entire family~~~ I’m beyond thrilled and immensely grateful for the most wonderful gift I could have asked for.

I love you Sofia. No matter what happens in the future, I’ll forever love you and work hard to keep the smile on you.

    Aw the party looked great. This posts really made me realize simple pleasures like being with family and friends is important for the soul.

  3. What a great looking party! Sofia looks so pretty in her white dress with red shoes. So happy that Star could make it home to celebrate with everyone!

  4. Did I see Argentinean empanadas?! I am currently visiting Buenos Aires…it’s challenging to eat vegan here, but it’s really interesting to experience it though and I’m only here for a few more weeks and have been here for a month! What a fantastic and adorable birthday party! 🙂
