Pink and Chocolate Party!

For several weeks I have been scouring the blogs for party ideas.  Our beautiful daughter turned 3 this week and we wanted a party as sweet as she is.  We decided to do a pink and chocolate party.  The idea was that we would have a yummy party that made our daughter's heart happy.  We had a great turn out and she had a lot of fun.

This beautiful cake was made for us by Jessie Mancha.

We let our guests make their own goodie bags.   
I think the kids (and the adults) had fun doing this.

Here is the left side of the yummy table!

Here is the right side of the yummy table!

Here is a closer look at some of the yummies.

I have seen a lot a adorable pics in blogland of DIY Photo Booths and I knew we wanted to do one.  So, my fabulous hubby constructed a back drop out of PVC Pipe and a brown velvet curtain.  Then I made some props out of felt and sticks.  We also found some great chalkboard speech bubbles so we put two of them on sticks.  I found some old pictures at the thrift store.  I took the pictures and glass out of them and painted the frames in fun pinks.  Here are some of the pictures that were created in our photo area of the party.  Some of them used the backdrop and others just grabbed the props and had fun.

This is Mia the Birthday Girl!

Here are is the name topiary that I posted a few days ago.  I just wanted you to see it in action.

We had an incredible day and so appreciate all of the love we received from our friends and family.  I can't believe that our daughter is three years old.  We met when she was 15 months old, and since that day, our hearts grow larger every moment we spend with her.

I am linking this project to the following parties:
