Belated Birthday Post: Lily's Go-Green Garden Party!

Sunday, August 12, 2012

Eeep! I'm about a month and a half late on this one, but better now than never, no? 

Since Carl was in El Paso for his internship during the month of June, I threw her a birthday party in San Antonio to celebrate with all her little friends before we flew to EP so celebrate with family. I'll be posted photos of both, but first here's a recap of her party here in San Antonio.

The venue was the San Antonio Public Library Foundation's garden and cottage. This party was a mostly DIY project, and I'm thrilled with how it all turned out. Happy belated birthday, my sweetness!

this is the garden where we threw the party.
sadly, our photog didn't snap a pic of the whole setup, but this gives you an idea...

i baked organic, gluten-free cupcakes with chocolate buttercream frosting from scratch. they don't look all that great, but they were really tasty, if i do say so myself..

  1. such a cute little party! i love all the diy elements.

  2. Thank you! It went by way too quickly. I'm already thinking of themes for #2...

  3. These tend to run bigger than othes so if you're not ready to move up to the next size they help. I've had a few leakage issues though but that wouldn't deter me from giving this five stars. They move well too, when they get wet they don't become overly bulky.


Thank you for visiting! I love receiving comments and try my very best to respond to each of them.
