Sweets & Treats Party

For his 5th birthday, Little Man requested a candy theme. I figured, why not? A lot little sugar now and then wouldn't hurt anyone. (Which technically isn't true, since the day ended with an early bedtime and a belly ache.)

We baked, frosted, and dipped sweets all through Friday night. Our kitchen was covered in sprinkles, chocolate, and bits of cookie. But the end result made the kiddos drool.

There was a candy buffet:

There were cupcakes to be decorated by little hands:

Whoopie pies to munch:

And even more candy from the pinata:

There was also lots of non-candy related time spent at the playground, in the sand box, and playing with new toys.

But when all the sugar-buzzed children went home to their own parents, I was definitely happy to sit down and rest. And can you believe I didn't eat any of that candy???

You're amazing! You make all of my parties look so cheesy! Sugar or no sugar, those things look AWESOME!

Looking at and smelling candy is enough for me... don't actually like sugar. But the kids.... why not let them gorge themselves once in a (very long) while? They'll learn from their bellyaches. And it all looked so good! The kids were thrilled, I bet. =)
