I’ve never thrown a birthday party before so I was pretty nervous, but I’m pretty sure this one was a success though. I made Odin his little felt crown which we wore the entire day (he even wore it to sleep!). I also made a rainbow felt garland which I saw on Pinterest, a monster disco themed bean bag toss, and we set up water play and loads of outside toys. We were so lucky to have such a gorgeous day and a gorgeous yard to set up our birthday picnic in.
We’ve been very good about limiting the processed foods when it comes to Odin. We rarely eat anything processed ourselves and so it’s been easy. For his birthday cake, I made a raw cashew cake which was a variation of this recipe from My New Roots. It was a huge hit with Odin and with all of our guests. I cannot express how thankful I am for everyone who came and for all of the beautiful gifts Odin received. He’s been so preoccupied with his new things, he’s barely had time for me! Thank you everyone! (I will try to send out proper thank you cards this week!)
