the no party birthday party
My favourite way to celebrate a birthday is to keep it a simple little affair. Just the five of us. A cake was whipped up that day, complete with a quick icing and five minute, old golden book mini bunting. (I used this recipe, doubled, substituting a little of the butter with coconut oil) A few cards, a crown from the kids and a simple present was all that was really needed. Though, to be honest, it does go a little over their head at this age. Older brother and sister certainly enjoyed the little party though. And one day, I expect Miss Violet will very much enjoy looking over her birthday photos.
Thank you to all those lovely birthday wishes yesterday. You really made our day!
