By all definitions, this was a sticky affair. Luci’s s’mores 3rd birthday party was the perfect backyard event to celebrate our girl – despite off the charts humidity. Even though a s’mores party wasn’t my original idea for Luci’s big day, it did end up being the best one. It was simple and fun and filled with lots of treats – a clear win on Luci’s barometer for any party.
Luci loves pink, so when planning for the party, I knew she would love some pops of pink…balloons, plates, bowls. I’m all about a good color scheme, so I went with a chocolate brown, pink and orange. I lucked out by scoring a huge Michael’s clearance sale, where I was able to pick up some fun decor on the (obscenely) cheap.
I tried my hand at baking again this year – I don’t think I ever ate one, but then again, Luci probably ate enough of the cupcakes for both of us. Thanks, Pinterest, for the s’mores cupcake adaptation.
The main event was the s’mores, of course – with both kids and adults getting in on the action. I think the last thing we needed that night was a fire to heat up the patio even further – but everyone was a good sport about it and the s’mores hit the spot on a hot summer night.
We sent everyone home with a little s’more love. It was the perfect end to such a fun celebration.
I can hardly believe our Luci is 3 years old. She will tell you that 3 is her number 🙂 We are so lucky to watch this fun little girl grow and change and learn. She’s now onto pre-school and seems to be getting older by the moment. Someone once told me (while I was trying to feed Henrik at the park and chase my toddler), “The days are long, but the years are short”. I am realizing just how right they are. It may seem silly to document these birthdays in such a way on this blog; but as these years seem to go by faster and faster – I like to think we will be able to look back on these cherished memories in a special way.
Lucija, happy 3rd birthday. Mes tevi milam and we couldn’t be prouder of you. Looking forward to a lifetime more of looking at this silly smile….
