Hannah's 5th Birthday...Strawberry Shortcake

The Strawberry Shortcake Party was held this weekend and it turned out great.
Lots of sweets, games, presents and fun!
Here are a few pictures from the day.
The tablescape ~

Placesetting ~A close up of the napkins.
Hannah helped me with them.
She cut out the rectangle SS and wrapped the silverware.
(I had to tape the paper to the tablecloth because of the wind)
A Strawberry Shortcake tattoo ~
The sweets table~ mmm
Cake made by Hannah's mom.
Hannah was pretty specific that she wanted Strawberry cake with SS's face on it. ~Strawberry Marshmallows dipped in chocolate and topped with a strawberry whopper~
Coconut Strawberries, my favorite ~
(Notice the cup/cakestand is taped to the table....it was that windy!)
A close up....just because they are my favorite :) ~

Strawberry lollipops made by my daughter ~

Chocolate dipped fresh Strawberries, Hannah's favorite ~

Strawberry squares ~
Dipped pretzels ~
The birthday banner that the wind had a great time with. ~
The finished pinata ready for the fun.
The kids really enjoyed this and I would show pictures of them hitting it, but I do not have permission from the parents to show their pictures online.

Hannah painting her Strawberry Suncatcher ~Sierra frosting her Strawberry cookie.
I had to show this picture...it's just adorable and she's my niece so it's ok. :) ~
More frosting ~
Other things we did were ~
Stick the gem on SS's crown
and a
Strawberry hunt.

We decorated with streamers and balloons but the wind was just bad so the streamers flew off quickly.
Very disappointing.
But the kids did not care....they were there to have fun and celebrate!
