Color Coordinated Sandwich Wraps Add Festive Flair

My daughter-in-law Amy throws a terrific party and once again proved herself at Kyra’s 5th birthday party. The age-appropriate theme- Pinkalicious. Guests dressed in various shades of rose, and all decorations and food had a pink tone.

As hostess, Amy chose to serve sandwich “wraps” as the luncheon entrĂ©e. But, she didn’t leave them in the plain paper as prepared by the deli. Amy cut scrapbook paper to the size of a wrapper, added the pieces around each sandwich, and secured with a toothpick. The assorted colors added a festive flair to the table. What a terrific tailgate idea- surround “wraps” in bold school colors.

Amy and Kyra baked individual cupcakes in place of a large birthday cake,. They frosted them, coated with sprinkles, and then topped each with a bright Maraschino cherry. A fun mother-daughter activity and very pretty!

Kyra, the pinkalicious star reigning over the event, was truly delicious. She delighted in celebrating with friends and family.
Happy birthday princess!
