Liam’s 3rd birthday was so fun this year. At the time of his birthday, there was pretty much nothing else on the brain except Winnie the Pooh. Mr. Pooh has been a favorite of Liam’s for a while, so I ran with the theme so he would know that the day was all about him. The menu was simple but substantial, because we were going to be swimming. No tiny hors d’oeuvres and dainty desserts to be found at this swim party, as we had a hungry group to feed. We had Honey BBQ Chicken Kebabs, Piglet’s Pasta Salad, Rabbit’s Garden Salad, Honey Comb Cereal (to snack on), Fresh Squeezed Honey Lemonade, Rice Krispy Treat Honey Hives, and Honey Cupcakes with Honey Cream Cheese Frosting. I threw in a few Bit of Honey candies in jars here and there, because they’re so good and also a throwback to my childhood.
Liam believes that a birthday party wouldn’t even be a birthday party without party hats. He talks about “bird-day hats” all the time. When he has something that is shaped like a birthday hat, he puts it on his head and tells me, “Look Mom… bird-day hat!” When he is holding an object that does not at all resemble a birthday hat (or any sort of hat for that matter), he’ll put it on his head and make the same exclamation. Theme or no theme, I knew that birthday hats were a must.
We swam in the swimming hole, had a picnic, and busted open a beehive (piñata) in search of sweets.
