My girlfriend Jen just hosted a socially-distanced birthday party for her daughter outside that we sadly missed — but I was dying over the La Duree macaron cart she put together for it. Totally and unabashedly piggy-backing off her idea by starting to daydream about a candy-themed birthday for my own girl, turning four in three months! We won’t be having a party for it, but I am now planning to transform a little corner of our apartment into a candy cart for her to celebrate the day. The idea is quickly snowballing out of control, but I had to share so many precious finds I came across for the occasion, starting with this beyond adorable play candy cart and outrageously darling details like these candy-accented straws. OMG!
I always love Proper Peony birthday dresses for mini — this one is precious, as is this one, which mini wore last year. Also swooning over this hand-smocked ice cream style, this gorgeous handmade one (the pink and white stripe!), and this baby girl one that reads “too sweet” in hand-stitched embroidery along the bottom. Beyond! It is dawning on me that I probably do not have many more birthdays where my girl will tolerate such frou-frou-ness!
P.P.S. Things I love about my girl
P.P.P.S. I feel weepy reading my thoughts on waiting for her to arrive nearly four years ago…
