Celebrating Leona's 2nd birthday

Celebrating Leona's 2nd birthday

In honor of Leona’s 2nd Birthday, we celebrated last Sunday at the Lee Farms in Tualatin just outside of Portland. I had found the place online here and drove there to see what it was like about  a month ago. It was very quiet then. Yesterday in contrary it was super busy with tons of activities and lots of people visiting. There were two hay mazes, a bouncy castle, pony rides, hay rides, a pumpkin patch, goat petting zoo, little baby chicks and calves nestled in a little hay-stall a carousel. It felt more like Oktoberfest then pristine farm – but was lots of fun none the less. We gathered at 3pm to set up, cheered with drinks at 4pm and had Leona open her lovely presents afterwards.

I had made cupcakes (with flour and sugar) but used the vegan frosting that i made the week before for Leona to take to school (waldorf mind you therefore sugar, dairy and gluten free). I used the babycakes recipy book and they turned out quite nice but resembled muffins more then cupcakes. For yesterday’s celebration i kept to the tried and trusted to be on the safe side before i continue to experiment with the alternative. And because this was Leona’s birthday and Andy doesn’t spare any cost for his little girl – i was able to pick up this beautiful black ceramic 3-piece cake stand at noun. I love this little shop that has just a lovely selection of beautiful finds.

As party favors, we had created these customized name-bracelets inspired by Bead Simple. It was a very fun to make yet inexpensive treat as i snatched up the wooden beads from Knittn’Kitten for $0.50 the bag! Hurray!
