Simple Hungry Caterpillar Party

Here is a little look at the party we had for our 3 year old. 
You know something....it's hard to be the hostess, be 8 months prego, take a ton of pictures and keep little fingers out of the cake all at the same time :) 
It was a success and she sure enjoyed her party....made it all worth it!!

I sooo cheated this time!!  I made the cupcakes and the cake from a box...
then headed to my local bakery to have them make the frosting and dye it the right colors for my caterpillar. 
I then went home and frosted the cupcakes and added a small detail to the top.
It was sooooo worth the $5.00 for less stress and yummy frosting :)
I have such great family and friends! 
Instead of having them bring a gift I asked if they would bring something to share for lunch.
We had such a delightful menu. Veggies, fruit, potato salad, bean dip, chips, and I made chicken salad sandwiches.
Then of course the cake and ice cream for dessert.  It was fabulous and so fun and simple to put together!!
We also gave each child a little bag of sour gummy worms as a thank you for coming....of course my fingers were not fast enough to get a pictures of those :)
Here is were I first got the idea for my cake
Simple table decorations made out of paper circles, empty tuna cans, floral foam, wooden dowels and easter grass. 
Happy Birthday Kidos!
