Somehow, Sleeping Beauty is Hannah's favorite Disney princess, and she loves the movie. (Imagine me scratching my head in puzzlement.) Her absolute favorite scene is the one where the good fairies try to make Aurora a birthday cake without using magic. It turns into a huge, leaning tower of cake layers, blue icing, and prematurely lit candles, which eventually falls over - in spite of the broom Fairy Fauna tries to prop it up with. When Hannah imagined her upcoming birthday party, that cake was all she could see.
We sent the invitations pictured above, which are part of a garland we bought from Williams Sonoma. Hannah licked all the envelopes herself. And I'm pleased to invite you to join me in a behind-the-scenes look at the party planning, including the infamous falling-over cake.
