The Birthday Cake
I bought the cake at Walmart! It tasted great and was much cheaper than going to a bakery.
I don't care for cake but I loved these cake pops! I'll post the recipe later this week.
To make the bags: I bought purple gift bags and cut off the handles. Then I printed the backpack faces using this template on colored paper. Then I cut out the face and glued it to the bag. I put craft foam at the bottom of the bags to hold the sticks and decorations in place. Then I stuffed tissue paper over the craft foam and placed purple flowers on top.
Dessert Table Decorations
I found these large cups at Party City. I put craft foam at the bottom to hold the sticks in place, and tissue paper and flowers on top.
I found these cute tin purses at Walmart around Valentine's Day. You could tie balloons from them for decoration. I knew my girls would want to carry them around so I just set them out by the desserts.
I bought the party hats at Party city and decorated them with pom pom balls.
Number 4 Collage
I printed pictures of the highlights of Ava's past year and arranged them in the number 4.
