So the planning begins for Ella’s 3rd birthday — well, mostly brainstorming. I found some super cute and creative ideas and although some may be a little bit too ambitious for me (i.e. the Keroppi sushi rolls), these ideas serve as food for thought as I begin to put some ideas together for Miss Ella. Since Hello Kitty is a pretty “girly” theme and Ella has a good number of boy cousins and friends, I decided to have a Hello Kitty & Keroppi party for her. I had to do a little bit of web research to confirm that our frog was in fact “male”. LOL! This year, we’re having it at our house and it will be a small(er) event than say her 1st or 2nd birthday celebrations.
