"Princess Sienna" is the daughter of my close friend and business consultant, Sabrina Velandry. Last weekend our "Little Princess" turned two. For her birthday, "Auntie Cathy" made her a very pink and very magical "Tiara and Fairy Wand". Pink and sparkly as always, the Princess looked divine in her birthday finery.

Her adorable tiara graced her head long enough for her to blow out the candles on her lovingly, home-made birthday cake. Daddy wasn't quite the expert at putting on frosting, thus Sienna had what is now known as the "Cookies and Creme" cake. Lots of bits and pieces of chocolate cake mixed in with white frosting gave this One-of-A-Kind cake it's name and will be known forever as such. Princess Sienna didn't mind one bit because at the ripe old age of "2" ANYTHING SWEET is GOOD!

I would love to turn 2 again, even if just to get to wear such a pretty pink party hat!

Hi Cathy,
I was so happy to see your comment & thank you for adding me to your blogroll. I have added you to mine as well.
I absolutely LOVE the crown that adorns sweet little "Princess Sienna". What a treat for her to have such a talented "Auntie Cathy"! I hope that you all have a fantastic time in Chicago this weekend. I get a treat myself because I get my sister for a week!!
Take care & have fun,
