I ordered the invitations from Graham Cracker Designs on Etsy. They were designed to be printed and mailed, but I just emailed the pdf out to the party guests. Green. Simple. Lazy.
If you're familiar with the book, you know that hats play a key role. There is a fabulous over-the-top hat on the last page that I recreated for Penny.
We did a reading of the book and colored dogs made by tracing little hands.
I made a round, pink layer cake, just like in the book. This cake is relatively healthy and super yummy. It is my go-to healthy cake recipe, and it totally passes for breakfast food at a 10am birthday party. I will post the recipe in a separate post soon.
It was a fun and sweet little party. Thanks, Olive, for so graciously letting us celebrate Penny's birthday before your arrival!
And extra thanks to my friend Sabrina for taking most of these pictures. The ones that are grainy with bad lighting were taken by me, but she took all the gorgeous shots!
