This all started with idea of pink gumballs and it snowballed from there. I ordered bulk gumballs because I only wanted pink, Maddie’s favorite color. Searching the web, I found the best price for pink gumballs, but I neglected to really pay attention to the number of gumballs. Three days later, a 1,000 pink gumballs landed on my front step.
Pink, circles, and gum balls were the theme of Maddie’s 4th birthday party. The gum balls decorated the red velvet cake and I found the recipe on Design Sponge, one of my favorite sites. Bird Dog Press made adorable letter press coasters to be used with the pink lemonade. And from Bird Dog Press’ design, I had some cute buttons made by Shut Your Button for all the guests to wear. Between the pink balloons and the beautiful flowers from Brighter Day Floral, Maddie’s party was pinkfully successful.
Feeling sad for how fast my little girl is growing up, I made a photo garland with photos from each stage in her life. My plan is to put together a book of the images for her to keep and look through to see how big she has gotten. Maddie’s sweet smock dress was mine growing up. My mom kept all my smock dresses and this will probably be the last birthday she can wear one. I guess we will need to start a new family tradition next year.
