Bella Turns Three

This past week, our little Bella girl turned 3 years old. THREE! I can hardly believe I just wrote that. These past 3 years have been some of the best of my life and have also gone by in a whirlwind. She's taught me so much about myself and about life, her smile and her joyful attitude are some of the sweetest things and make our days so much brighter.
We had her birthday party a few days early (on December 4th) and as usual, she had a blast! I always love throwing her a birthday party and making the day all about her and making her feel special. Last year we went with a nutcracker theme, but this year I wanted something a bit different. If you've been following along with me over on my Pinterest and instagram Stories, I'm sure you can guess what the theme was. Gingerbread!

I made a gingerbread naked cake from scratch (you can find the recipe on Pinterest here), I also handcrafted the little gingerbread house from graham crackers, icing and gold sugar beads! And the "trees" are actually rosemary (from our garden) that I turned upside down and "flocked" with powdered sugar. It made for the coziest little alpine chalet or cottage scene, don't you agree?

This party color theme was all about lots of gold, white, forest green and fresh greenery (again, more rosemary grown in our garden) with most of the party supplies from Jamboree Party Box over on Etsy (thanks Cassi, they totally made the party!). Cassi sent over the gorgeous custom white/gold/forest green tassel garland (she doesn't currently offer this custom one she sent me, but here's a similar one) that I hung over our dining room table, the sweet little wood and glitter forks (perfect for scooping up a bite of the gingerbread cake), the little "take-home" Kraft brown treat paper baggies that were great for guests to take home some extra goodies, and the lovely gold popcorn boxes (I filled them with dark chocolate popcorn that was sooo tasty). She also sent over some Kraft brown paper straws, a cute balloon filled with confetti and that adorable (and huge) gold number 3 Mylar balloon. Seriously, if you have a party coming up, check out Jamboree Party Style on Etsy, she has literally everything you need and in every different color and party theme!
The day was a perfect one and she had so much fun. Happy Birthday our lovely little Bella, we love you!
