Happy Birthday, Miss C!

Miss C turned 5 during the last week of school. So between end of the year activities and party planning, I had to figure out preschool birthday snacks. Her birthday party that weekend was going to be Strawberry Shortcake theme, so we ran with the strawberry theme all week.  

Her preschool snacks:
Easy Strawberry Mini Trifles
Using clear party cups, layer the following:
- cubed angel food cake
- vanilla pudding
- strawberries w/syrup
- a dollop of whipped cream. 

Her birthday lunch! 
"Cake" turkey and cheese sandwich 
blueberries, grapes, veggie and snap peas chips. 
The cake cutter is from the SWEET set from LunchPunch.

She also wanted to share a snack with her lunch buddies at her extended preschool class. Since I know that all of the kids will have packed lunches, we just did mini strawberry kabobs with flower marshmallows for that little sweet treat.

That weekend, Miss C had her Strawberry Shortcake themed birthday party!

Desserts included Strawberry Cakeballs, Strawberry Wafers, Strawberries & Cream Cupcakes
Strawberries Shortcake Push Pops, Strawberry Trifle and The Cake (chocolate)
Happy 5th Birthday, my sweet C!


  1. All the food looks amazing! I love the Strawberry Mini Trifles and the Strawberry fruit snacks she brought to school! Also that Strawberry Shortcake Cake is amazing!! What a great birthday celebration! She is beautiful! Happy Belated Birthday!

I don't really care if my husband gets teased about his lunches. I don't think he does either. He rarely eats lunches, so when he was participating in the Crossfit Open last March, he needed to maintain a healthier eating routine, I was a little more giddier than he was to pack his lunches too. I didn't take many pictures of them, since he didn't care much for presentation, but with EasyLunchBoxes, it was easy to arrange the food in different compartments.

Last weekend, he participated in a mud/foam run in Chicago with the some of the athletes at our Crossfit box. It was a 2.5 hour bus ride each way, so he needed to pack lunch and a post-race dinner.  Of course I jumped on that opportunity to pack his lunches too. :)
