I proposed the idea of a butterfly theme birthday about a month ago. I was trying to find a cost effective way to throw a party. I had this cute butterfly cake pan from her first birthday and thought it would be fun (and inexpensive) to use it again. Here's how the conversation went:
Me - "I thought it would be fun to have a butterfly birthday this year!"
A - "Hmm, I was thinking that I want a princess birthday."
Me - "But, you've had princess parties for the last two years. Wouldn't a butterfly birthday be fun?"
A - " Yeah, I was thinking princess..."
I finally convinced her. ;) You know fairies and butterflies both have wings. She ended up loving it and I got to use the cake pan again!
The girls made coffee filter butterflies...
And she opened up gifts. She received so many great presents from her friends. There's a lot more princess, fairy, craft and butterfly things in our house now!
And she even got a brand new pair of Crocs from Grandma Rose, complete with light-up Fairy Jibbitz. She loves them! I think she had a great birthday! (And thanks Cindy for taking pictures for me!!!)
