  1. Wow! How awesome! I'm afraid I won't be any help, though - with the exception of Strawberry SHortcake, I love them all! The crayons are amazing; I love the beach idea; the tea party is also way cool! Good luck figuring it out! :)

  2. I think the strawberry shortcake one is the cutest, but does she know who that is? Not sure what 'them kids' like these days, don't have kids of my own!

  5. Ha, we all have a different opinion. I love the purse! My daughter is turning 5 next week and she is all ABOUT girly stuff. :o)

  6. Traci. I love them all, but think that Strawberry Shortcake is def the cutest and the single serving cupcakes could feed the guests and the big Strawberry Shortcake can be enjoyed by your family. :o)

  8. Grammie loves the purse or the flip flops...too cute!
    I think I may like the flip flops the best.

  9. I love the crayons. You can do an artist theme with loot bags that have canvas and paint (from the dollar store). The kids could paint, draw and other art things. Kids love to murals. Have a large butcher sheet taped up and have crayons and markers available. Have fun.

  10. I like number 2 and 3... But my favorite is #3 Beach Theme. I know my 4 year old would love this:) Love all the pink on it. Such a great cake.

  11. I love the Ice Cream Theme! I would love to do that for my daughter! Payton wants a " Junie B. Jones" Birthday party... Have any suggestions for that??? Thank you again for all your wonderful posts. I have not been commenting lately but I have been reading!

  13. I love the beach one (and all of them actually!). I am trying to decide on my daughter's party too (though hers isn't until January and she will be 5). I am actually leaning towards a pool or beach party. I mean normally a January birthday it will be cold for in the place we prefer to live, so while we are on a tropical island I figure we need to take advantage of that!!
    Your carosuel cake was so cute! And I actually did that same type of castle cake for my daughter's last party- though our was Cinderella's castle so it was blue with some purple. Very cute!!

  14. Oh, for me I'd go with the beach theme! I love the tea party theme.My daughter's favorite parties were the extravagant tea parties with dress up and real tea in tea cups. She had one for her 7th and 8th birthdays.

    I like the each theme and the purse. You are so clever. I know it is a labor of love. I always like doing the fancy cakes....they are fun.

  16. I'd choose one that she wouldn't choose later on when she's older...like the crayons or ice cream cone. They are all adorable, so you can't really lose. Enjoy the cuteness and simplicity of her age while you can!

  18. Beach parties are awesome for summer bdays, but October... i dont know :) Id say Strawberry Shortcake would be fun at this age. Or purses.

  20. Traci, had to get in on this one! Like I'm suppose to know, me with two boys!!!! I love the Strawberry Shortcake. Keep her little as long as you can. I loved the other cake you had made, they were precious.

  21. I love them all, but I especially love the flip flops.

  22. I like the strawberry shortcake one the best just because it says 4 year old girl the most!

  23. Your daughter is adorable. And what a Mom you are. I lean towards the Strawberry Shortcake theme.

  24. I don't think you can go wrong with any of these! My fav is definitely the crayon cake!! :-)

    Love seeing all the other party ideas too. You're so creative!

  25. Your soon-to-be-four-year-old is sooo adorable!

    All those cakes look pretty and delicious. They're cute, especially those sandals. But, hey, it's not my birthday... :)

    My soon-to-be-four daughter (turning 4 this year, too), upon seeing those cakes, shouted STRAWBERRY SHORTCAKE!!!

  28. Every 4 year old loves a good old tea party!! I know mine did. Actually, mine is 13 and she STILL loves tea parties!

  29. A beach party in October would be FUN! My bday is in October and I would have loved that as a child. I always did wish I could have a waterpark party growing up. :)

    You are an awesome mom! I love last year's theme. Fabulous!!!!!

  30. I like the beach theme but... you could do some really cool stuff with the purse. Like a spa party and paint their nails.

  31. Wow! Love her bday parties! :D They look like fun! I love the purse/tea cup or the beach party. I did a beach party for my daughter when she was 4, I think. :D

    Have a blessed day!

  32. I think the beach theme could be lots of fun - you could have those cool palm tree balloons, etc. and shells /sand / candles center pieces! The sandle cake is just A-DORABLE too! My second fave is the tea party one :)

  33. I asked the girls - Sydney likes all of them but the beach and tea party the best. Michaela was dead set on the ice cream parlor party and she was excited about possibly making her own ice cream sundae. Now that I picture that it does sound REALLY cute!

    ReplyDelete
  34. OH the crayons!!!! The theme could be all types of coloring! They could color white t-shirts with permanent paint pens...there could be all sorts of "art stations" set up around the room - I LOVE IT! (and crayons are still cool at 4...by five they may not be. (sigh))
    That's my vote :)

  35. I like the Strawberry Shortcake one the best. My second pick is the flip flops.

  36. I did this type of thing, too....when my kids were little! I really like the crayon box myself!!

  37. Wow girl, you got some amazin' decoratin' skills!! As long as it's pink, I think your kiddo will be happy. But my personal faves are the cute purse and the sandals. Just can't decide which one! :)

  38. For her age, I would have to vote for the Tea Party Purse. I think it would be so cute to have a Tea Party theme! Have fun, they grow up so fast. Im planning my babies 9th Birthday, she wants a sleep over!
