Butterfly Birthday

It was my niece’s 2nd birthday last Friday and we celebrated with a party for her on Saturday.  My sister is the queen of throwing parties.  Every year she amazes me on what she comes up with. I tell her she needs to do this for a living.  She puts so much time, effort, and thought into making her girls’ birthdays perfect.  This year Alice requested a pink butterfly birthday party and it turned out so beautiful! It’s tradition that I spend the Friday before the party helping my sister bake, cook, and clean in preparation.  All of the recipes for the food we made were found on Pinterest (of course).  The drumsticks were uuuuuhmazing.  And I couldn’t stop eating the corn dip!  Needless to say, these recipes are keepers 🙂

Butterfly Birthday



Carrots and celery with ranch in shot glasses happen every year 🙂


 Seriously, this corn dip was SO GOOD.  And it took less than 5 minutes to make!  Get the recipe HERE



I loved these honey teriyaki chicken drumsticks.  They were full of flavor! The sriracha gives them a nice kick. We marinated them over night and cooked them on the BBQ instead of in the oven. Get the recipe HERE


 This creme brûlée cake from Martha Stewart took us SIX hours to make.  No joke, six hours. The cake was delicious, although we were a little disappointed with the caramel flavor as it wasn’t present enough.  But the consistency of the cake was fabulous and it turned out beautiful! Get the recipe HERE


We made chocolate dipped pretzel sticks for thank you treats for all the guests to take home.  We dipped the pretzel sticks in milk, dark, and white chocolate and drizzled with more chocolate and sprinkles. 


 My oldest niece’s birthday is in April and is having a fairy party!  I’ve already got a little sneak peak into what my sister has planned and cannot wait to see it come together!  I’ll be sure to post pictures and recipes 🙂

      Thank you! The cake was delicious 🙂 Sometimes I think, what did I do before Pinterest?? Things were a little more simple back then.
