I’m posting from my hotel room in Chicago this weekend, and going through my daughter’s birthday party photos makes me miss her even more, and I’m getting a craving for some sweets.
Aliyah's 3rd Birthday Party

“I’m a kid in a candy story, … And I’m living out a major fantasy.”
~Dean DevlinAliyah's 3rd Birthday Party

We definitely made the kids feel like they were in a candy store at Aliyah’s 3rd birthday party, and I think most of the adults lived out a major candy fantasy.
Now, if I could just stop eating the leftovers.

The Birthday Girl liked to hover by the candy buffet as we were setting up… and frankly, so did I. On the menu were mini cheeseburgers and curly fries, served up in these snow cone cups on a tray of tootsie rolls.

The kids loved having their own tables to sit at while noshing, and I loved these lanterns made to look like giant candy hanging in the trees.
