Chocolate Cake with Chocolate Chips
We made it! We were able to celebrate Finn’s 3rd Birthday this weekend without having to worry about any new brother showing up. We pushed up Finn’s birthday party a week early to prevent any tiny party crashers and it worked out perfectly. Since my energy level is hovering around 0 these days we had a really low key party, which ended up being one of the nicest parties we’ve ever hosted. Instead of going totally nuts on party decor like I did last year, I just focused on a few essentials, one of them being Finn’s cake. Would you believe it if I told you that this is the first birthday Finn has actually eaten his cake. I guess he has an aversion to frosting, but chocolate icing is not frosting, it’s just chocolate, and adding “chocolate chips” can’t hurt either. The cake was a success and got 100% totally eaten.

Glad's and Decorations
I also purchased a few simple rice paper daisies, paper straws for the lemonade and Gladiola’s from the farmer’s market. Three totally cheap and easy ways to liven up this par-tay.

Chips & Pinwheels
Snacks were served in lieu of hosting a BBQ with all the fixins’ like we have in the past. This was huge in keeping this party low key and simple.

Homemade Pinwheels
Finn and I made these pinwheels the night before his birthday, a simple and inexpensive DIY that we’ve done two birthday’s in a row. I will be including a how-to post in the next few days.
