Seven is supposed to be a lucky number, I told Matthew today. So, since you just turned 7, this should be a really great year. He was unimpressed. I’m slowly, and sadly, beginning to realize that the older he gets, the more uncool I become. When did being 7 get to be so big??
For his birthday this year, I decided to go low-key and have just family and close friends over for dinner and cake. To be honest, last year’s party was very time intensive, and I just wasn’t up for that this time around. (You can check out the Star War’s theme here. His 5th birthday party was dinosaur themed and I didn’t put on the blog for a reason I can’t remember, 4th birthday party was shark-themed, 3rd birthday party was “The Very Hungry Caterpillar,” both which can be found here, 2nd birthday party, and 1st birthday party. Phew!)
So, he asked for a blueberry cake, and I ordered these super cute sprinkles to go along. (In fact, I order all my sprinkles from her. They are unique and beautiful.) His favorite colors are turquoise and orange. Lucky me I found sprinkles with both.
The recipe comes from Sweetapolita’s cookbook, which is fantastic, by the way. The only change I made was adding lemon curd in-between the layers of cake instead of frosting. And the frosting is my favorite–Swiss meringue buttercream.
It was a great day to celebrate, and I was thankful that family and friends could be there. Happy birthday Matthew! xoxo
