Hey all! Today’s post is letting you into a little bit of my life. My daughter, Lila, turns 4 this week and we had her “Mulan” inspired party this weekend. (Last year she had a “Belle” inspired party!) For the record–my son gets parties like this too, I just never get a chance to get them into a post because his birthday is at a crazy time of year! (December 31st)
♦ BBQ Pork Sandwiches (hot dogs for the kids)
♦ Salsa/Hummus/Homemade Guacamole
♦ Strawberries & Dip
♦ Veggie Sushi Rolls (# fail. Will discuss later)
♦ Sushi Krispies
♦ A Mulan Cake!
(I would’ve loved a party with Asian themed food but I don’t have enough confidence in cooking it and didn’t want to order it in!!)
We dipped fortune cookies in pink chocolate and then dipped in sprinkles. Added a nice twist to the normal cardboard taste of a fortune cookie!
Sushi Krispies! Make a pan of rice krispies, then break into circles and oval shapes. Take a fruit roll up, slice up and put around and top with Swedish fish!
These look great but we made them the night before and they were mushy and runny. Yuck. I decided not to put them out, however, my mother in law and husband ate them and loved them! Recipe here.
My mother in law always makes our birthday cakes and will do whatever theme I ask! This is what she came up with for Lila and I loved it! The inside of the cake was cherry and strawberry. YUM!
Paper Lanterns, chinese fans, and chinese take out cartons were fun touches!
