I think I've mentioned before that half-birthdays are a pretty big deal in our family. I guess we just love any excuse to celebrate...and eat cake! This year, I cheated a bit and bought a mini vanilla bundt cake at Whole Foods. It was so cute and just the perfect size for a "half" birthday. I whipped up some pink icing to drizzle over the top and decorated it with a variety of colorful sprinkles...
To add to the festive feel, I added some pastel confetti,
mini party hats,
and a sweet little birdie garland...
If you personally don't embrace the whole "half-birthday" thing (although you really should!), this mini party would be great for just a regular old birthday as well. :-)
