Of Food and Love romalise: 3rd birthday Oliva The Pig Themed Birthday Party Roma's party

In my napsack stash
Our precious little one turned 3 last month. But because her birthday is one of those that lands on Thanksgiving every four years…we had to wait until December to have the official party. (it runs in the family, these on/or near the holiday birthdays…mine being another, as it falls two days after Christmas)
So, on Saturday we set up shop and had Roma’s Olivia The Pig party. Decorations were simple and the company was perfect. I have found that I’m REALLY gravitating toward smaller gatherings when it comes to doing parties for my kids. It’s SO much work! I have a mind to just throw crackers and candy on the ground for the next party and have the kids eat like little animals. Shoot, we’ll call the “Ravish, Scavenge and Scarf It” game. hah
Anyway, crackers, cheese and slices of sausage were on the menu. Not too imaginative, but kids love finger food! Then, I had a plate for the adults. Cream cheese smothered in mango ginger chutney, surrounded by dried apricot. That disappeared quite quickly.
If the ceilings in our house were taller, the little “chandelier” that I made would have had at least two tiers, but one was just fine. My good friend, Angie, came over and helped me put it together. Thank goodness for her!
For the ruffled streamers on the mirror I used THIS tutorial.
Angie also made Roma’s personal little birthday cake along with a little extra for everyone else. It was the yummiest little vanilla cake, too.
All of her gifts were so “her”. An Olivia dress up kit, finger puppets, princess slippers, cute outfits with happy colors, a Dora schoolhouse. We were so blessed with the friends and family who showed.
