Sofie's Sweet Shoppe

Today was the big party for Little Miss Sofia! If you know Sofie at all, you know that "candy" should be her middle name. She loves anything sweet and sugary (much like her mother), so a "candy" party seemed fitting.
We had 20 little shoppers in the "Shoppe" today. They started out with making their own pizzas for lunch.
Then they moved on to making their very own custom candy bracelets.We played some games, sang some songs - especially the "Happy Birthday" one to Sofie.
The cake turned out fun. I made it very "sweet" just for her! The candles were sent to her by Auntie Di. The flame is the same color as the candle - it was cool to see them glowing their various colors! Thanks Di!
She loved opening her presents, and spent the entire afternoon/evening playing with her fun new toys and crafts. I was, however, happy to hear the answer to one specific question. "Sofie, what was your favorite birthday present?" Her answer - CANDY! I suppose it was quite perfect for her. She had to brush her teeth 3 times tonight, because she kept getting into the candy after she'd been sent to bed.What do you do with all the candy in the jars you ask? Well you send it home with the guests - of course! Each child packed their very own "goodie bag" of treats to take home.
They each received a fabric "candy bag" with candy lip gloss, candy stickers, candy hair clips (girls), candy notebooks and mini pens.As usual, a huge shout out to Jane, for her fabulous photography of the event. What would I ever do without her?

Happy Birthday Sofie!
SWEET DREAMS!
