Berry Sweet Strawberry Party

So, this past weekend we celebrated my baby girl turning 5 years old.....5 years old people! I just can't believe that.
She is such a joy and while I am a little sad that she is not still curled up lying on my chest, I am so excited to continue to watch her grow into a little lady and get to know her as a big girl!

She requested strawberry everything! We had a blast celebrating her. Hope you enjoy the party!
 We had a few little friends over for play time, a game, a strawberry craft and strawberry milk, cookies and strawberries of course!
The night before the party I always bake cakes, decorate and get everything in order so that I can enjoy the kids that day and not have to be rushing around like a crazy person!
So, I added dipping glasses in honey and then sprinkles to my list this time! I stuck them in the freezer until they were ready to fill with strawberry milk!
I found these free Strawberry Shortcake coloring sheets online and printed 2 off for each little girl. Then, I put together little craft bags with all of their needed supplies, cut and ready for them because I knew they wouldn't have time to do it all. I got my inspiration for the craft here. I changed it up just a tad by adding little rhinestone initial stickers to each bag.
I made several pretty little banners out of paper doilies and scrapbook papers. I really loved how they turned girly!
Now, we're moving onto cake and ice cream with friends AND family!
I also filled these little cups with ice cream and fresh strawberry syrup the night before; placed them on a cookie sheet and slid them into the freezer. The next day, I simply pulled them out and added whipped cream and sprinkles!
I feel so much better the day of the party when I am prepared. I am able to enjoy the celebration so much more.
She's 5!!! CRAZY!
I made this 5 by drawing a 5 on foam board, cutting it out using an exacto knife, and then wrapping it with strips of fabric. Then I added the little rosettes and ribbon. I did the same thing here for my little boys Sock Monkey party.

We had a berry sweet day celebrating my baby girl!
