But he was still hungry.... Char party, part 2

Remember this little guy? As promised, I will guide you through a tour of his gluttony, and likewise that of our party guests. (I will acknowledge that a close-up of fruit wedges falls short of thrilling some people. I'm glad you're not one of those people.)

You may suspect that Erik's hand was at the scissors for these tags, but no. If you recall, much of Eric Carle's artistic appeal to me is his wonky non-perfectionism. In fact, when making the food banner, I had to force myself to cut crooked sometimes! Being an utter slob by nature, this artistic allowance felt splendid.

I go to Mish for all my baking needs.

Yes, leaves buried in what else but more fruit! Char had such a fun diaper the next day.

I was originally planning on a bundt cake type caterpillar, but it turns out I don't have a bundt cake pan.

The same friend who made Erik's dinosaur cake offered her talents again and whipped out these whimsical pretties, which are much better than a bundt cake.

Not as well balanced a spread as I prefer to serve at parties, but everyone got their eight-fruits-a-day!

Next, since I did technically do this for him and not for food and streamers, Charlie makes an appearance at his own birthday party.
