Natalie's Birthday

I think this is the first birthday part of Natalie's that we've had at home and got to decorate for besides her first birthday.

She loooves unicorns now so we had a unicorn party for her.

It was a little bit of a bummer of a party because lots of people were sick and also the weather was terrible that day... so we had a bunch of people who weren't able to come.  But it was still a fun day and she didn't mind.  I was actually sick too sit was kind of nice to have it be a little calmer and less crowded.  I was looking forward to seeing everyone, but I guess that's one good thing about having your birthday around Christmas time.  We got to see everyone soon after her party day anyway...

I guess I didn't take many pictures, but here are a few:

I was really determined to make her a unicorn cake because I've been seeing them alllll over instagram and I am in love with them all.  I have never really used fondant before so I didn't know what to expect.  It was a little harder than I thought but I figured it out enough to get a cake out of it.  I was going to draw eyes on it but figured I better stop before I ruined it.  I also wanted to paint the horn with some silver metallic dust that I bought and then totally forgot about it.... Maybe next time.  Claire now says she wants a unicorn party for her next birthday... of course.

Unicorn horn ice cream cone cupcakes.  I really wanted mini ice cream cones for these cupcakes but I couldn't find any.  They would have looked cuter with small ones, but oh well.  Still cute.  And apparently delicious according to Michael.

Birthday + Christmas decorations... It works.

I got these Unicorn balloon kits from Land of Nod when they were on sale that were fun to make. 

Unicorn straws from Target.

 Napkins from Target.  Plates and letter balloons from Shop Sweet Lulu.

I love this girl.  So proud to be her mom... It's ridiculous.
