RYLEE DAY

This past Saturday was declared RYLEE DAY! It included opening presents, lunch at Costco, and ended with her first official birthday party.

PRESENTS
Ry was spoiled, not so much by us, but certainly by her grandparents and friends. Grandpa Chow and Venus got Ry her own set of golf clubs. Kev can not wait to get Ry out to the driving range this summer, if she can't be an Olympic skier she will be a professional golfer (no pressure Ry).

THE SPREAD
I was determined to make lots of goodies that Ry could eat. The challenge...have you tried doing lots of desserts without eggs and milk? We ended up with chocolate cake, cupcakes, sugar cookies, and rice crispies. We did cheat a little and serve ice cream to everyone else, I did not want to make our guests eat Rice Dream with their cake (tried it...not so dreamy).



Ry was loving the free for all sweet feast. That poor girl will watch her friends eat cookies, ice cream, or cake all the time and be excited to get a graham cracker.
RYLEE DAY was a success, except to maybe Sophie who apparently does not like when you put a big cone on her head.

Stef- I love your dessert table! It is a new passion and hobby of mine to make awesome desserts and make them look great. I've made a few table spreads myself and yours gives me some new inspiration.

I remember something with a cake a year ago, but I guess that doesnt compare to everything you did for this party. Holy Guacamole! Everything is so cute. Looks like a magazine.

Love your happy bday sign. Cute cake too. Looks like the birthday was a great success!
It is hard to make them watch everyone else eat the "real" stuff. Good job - what a great mom you are!

You are amazing! Poor Taylor, I am thinking a lot less effort for her birthday. Hmm maybe you need to come and throw her a party next month. Rylee is a very lucky little girl.

Liz said...

I think you look more talented than Martha Stewart! Can I hire you to decorate for our parties? Time goes by so fast with these little ones, Rylee is getting so big!

I'm so sad I ended up working and we missed out. You did a fantastic job decorating. So cute! And I'm glad Ry got something tastier than a stale marshmallow for this party...
