Cora's birthday carnival brunch


Baby Cora just turned two!  I guess that means she is not a baby anymore ... but we can just go on pretending, right?  The carnival theme came about because 1) when Cora arrived, our lives turned into kind of a three ring circus, and 2) I really wanted to reuse those decorations from Oscar's school carnival.  :) 



Of course, I used my favorite tool, Silhouette CAMEO for most of the decorations (banners, labels, vinyl, food picks, etc).  There are a few days left to enter the giveaway, and your odds are pretty good!  Also, I'll be posting the Black Friday deals on Thanksgiving day this year, so watch for that.  This sale is going to be the best they've ever offered, so you won't want to miss it.


I have to say, serving brunch was the easiest party food yet.  We skipped the cake all together and just served mini-doughnuts.



 For the rest of the spread, we had mini quiche, croissants, sausage, tiny yogurt cups, little pancake stacks, and apple fritter bread (which is crazy delicious, and you should totally try the recipe!).


The pancakes were my favorite.


But you know what was really my favorite from the party?  This girl.  She is a total nutter, and we love her to bits.


I made her a Geranium Tunic using the Children on Parade fabric by Sarah Jane.  I've been hanging onto it for a while, so I don't know how easy it is to find now.  It is one of my favorite fabrics ever!


So all it all, it was just a really fun morning where we ate ourselves sick and clowned around.





 Happy birthday, Cora!

I love when you throw parties! Adorable. And I'm way into throwing brunch parties, too - the food is fun and easy to make and it also doesn't cut into naptime for the little ones. Win! :D
