Gadding About at Leila's Birthday Party: The Food

In my last post about Leila's first birthday party, I mentioned that the food was so special that I had to devote a separate post to it.  Casey had chosen a "woodland" or "forest" theme for the party, and she, her mother, and her grandmother prepared the food perfectly to fit this theme.  It was really quite a spread---and delish!

The vegetable tray with dip was created to look like an owl.  Very clever.

Of course if you go camping in the forest, you will want to have a campfire to cook the hotdogs.  Gather up some twigs to get the flames going.

The dessert table continued with the woodland or forest theme: cupcakes to resemble mushrooms or ones covered with moss, and candy to represent "bear poop".

Casey is so creative, and I'm already looking forward to Leila's Second Birthday Party.
