A Strawberry Shortcake Birthday Party; A Reticent Reveler

When it comes right down to it, no matter how perfectly strawberryish your cake looks...


No matter how sweetly your homemade decorations are hung....


No matter how festively the table is filled with treats and sweets....


No matter how thankfully opened are the presents...


The birthday girl just might refuse to blow out her own candles, on principle. 


The principle of shyness, that is.  It's nearly impossibly to overcome with such an audience.  Nevertheless, Happy Birthday, Sweet Lauren!

  3. How did I forget that Lauren and Eli have birthdays so close together? (E's is on Sunday.)

    The cake was adorable and the party looked so sweet and quite fitting for an adorable 3-year-old. Happy Birthday to Lauren!
