The perfect party

A social worker by trade, my friend Gloria is the Martha Stewart of children's parties. Her celebration of her daughter's 2nd birthday was the cutest kid's birthday party I've ever attended. The bugs-in-the-garden theme was extended from the invites to the cake to the sand table stocked with plastic bugs and silk flowers. There were stations for customizing your own straw cup with crayons, creating a leafy crown with stickers, and adding a segment to a paper "memory caterpillar" of warm wishes for the birthday girl.
Z had a blast, although I think she was a little disappointed to find her best bud too preoccupied to want to play just with her. Fortunately there were plenty of little babies to adore. And she does love babies. Check out all of my photos from the event.
