A Very DIY Birthday

We celebrated my niece's 4th birthday this weekend. She wanted a princess horse party so that's what get got.

~The Cake~

My bff made a very fun castle cake with lots of candy, princesses, a pony, and the number 4. The kids loved picking the candy off the cake.


I made cake pops for the first time. They are red velvet dipped in purple (the niece's favorite color) and pink candy melts with sprinkles.


~The Party Venue~
The party was at a petting zoo. There were lots of animals to feed and pet as well as a train ride. Every time my nephew circled passed me he waved and said, "Hi Heder." So cute!!!!!


The niece and her cousin prefered a to scream every time they circled around.

 
I was in charge of the glitter tattoo station. Stars were most popular but I also did a dolphin and some butterflies. My station happened to be in front of a part of the petting zoo that had a painted "Miss Heather's Hotel."  We thought the coincidence was funny.
 

 
~Gifts~
I love that my niece's love homemade gifts from me. I attached my niece's lost "L" to the outside of her package. Her mother got a big laugh about that.


She was very excited to get her own baby doll blanket (in purple.)


I hope that you are having a great week. You've all been so quiet lately. You must be busy making vintage sheet gifts for your loved ones. ;)
