A photo essay of Bella’s 10th birthday:
Her cake, decorated by my mom in our family tradition of choosing a theme that reflects the birthday girl’s interests that year – so of course, Bella’s theme is books!
The tissue pom flowers I made as decoration – they didn’t turn out as well as the ones on the directions, but I like them well enough.
Per Bella’s request, we served Voodoo doughnuts (a Portland icon) at her Sunday morning party with her friends.
Check out the ones topped with Captain Crunch, Oreos, Coco Puffs, and bubble gum!
And finally, because it’s just too amazing not to document, Bella’s birthday list – this is only a partial list mind you, she added so many sheets that it ran on to the next wall.
She has thoughtfully categorized her wish list, and in many places, lists the catalog or website where the item can be found
