Baby Gia's 2nd Birthday Celebration!

We have a TWO year old! Since my little nuggets birthday was last Monday I decided to have a quaint party for her on Saturday.  I'm already feeling the guilt of not inviting 37 people but our house is just not cut out for that.  Plus, I wouldn't have been able to enjoy Gia's day, and that is what it is all about!
My other little nugget flaring some serious nostril, and favorite cousins.
 Having a birthday so close to Christmas, I tried making her day and week as special and festive as I could.  I put away the Christmas garlands and hung her special pink and blue ombre hearts. I puffed up some poms, which was harder than I thought it would be! She would barely keep on the glittery crown, but none the less she was adorable!  Trying not to go overboard with pink can be a challenge so I added in blues and her favorite yellow guy, Sponge Bob!  Daddy bought her some balloons but she was terrified.  We had to keep them in the bathroom shower, haha.
My husband even wrote on the chalkboard, talk about sweetness.  Yes, wrapped around the finger...

 On the menu, I made a spicy honey ham and homemade macaroni and cheese.  You cant go wrong there! I always order the girls birthday cakes.  It can be a bit overwhelming trying to do everything.  I did bake up some cupcakes and found these cute Sponge Bob toppers.
So once again Miss Gia was able to have some birthday cake and blow out candles.  She had to huff and puff pretty hard, I didn't realize putting two candles not that close together would be so difficult. Oppsy!
Gia Christina Scarsella, you are such a growing wonder.  We love you so very much! Words could not fully express the deep and overwhelming feeling of adornment and love I have for you.  You have made our lives so complete.

Thank you for reading.  Much love, Linzi


  1. Sooo sweet. You did a wonderful job decorating (the house an the cupcakes). That is so thoughtful that you made it her special day and removed some Christmas decorations to make it pink and extra-special for Gia. I have some friends born around Christmas and I know they would appreciate people going to extra lengths for them.

    Looks like you all had a wonderful time!

  2. Everything looks beautiful! I love the garland and the food looks delicious. I'm sure she had a great time! And you did a great time with throwing such a cute party!!

  3. You are the sweetest mom!! The girls are so blessed! Loved everything :)

  4. The chalkboard note from her daddy is just the most precious thing!

  5. Glad to see the little girl celebrating her birthday with all. My mother's kitty party and her birthday is in coming next month. Thinking to arrange a party at venue NYC near our place on the same day. A well managed luncheon with cake and desserts will be a great idea for a superb celebration.
