I gave him his own cupcake, which he took one bite of.
I used the only decorating trick I know for the cake for everyone else. And he opened gifts and played with balloons.
By the end we were all exhausted and went to bed early. Entertaining is not a joke, and I can't imagine how tired I would have been if we had invited more people. Having it this way kept the cost down from the comfort of our living room.
So far his favorite gift is this motorcycle his aunt got him.
We had a late lunch at his party which consisted of:
- Hawaiian Ham Sliders
- Sweet & Sour Meatballs
- Mixed Fruit
- Sweet Potato Fries
12 Hawaiian rolls
1t yellow mustard
1t poppy seeds
1t Worcestershire sauce
1t minced onion
1/2 stick butter
Mix the last five ingredients in a bowl - this goes on top of the bun. Split Hawaiian rolls, add a slice of cheese and piece of ham. Close bun. Repeat until all rolls are filled. Brush mixture on top of all the rolls. Bake at 350°F for 10 minutes or until cheese is melted.
Sweet and Sour Meatballs:
1 bottle Sweet Baby Ray's BBQ
1/2 jar grape jelly
Mix all together in a slow cooker on high for 3-4 hours or low 7-8.
Mix Grapes, Cantaloupe, Strawberries, Blackberries
Sweet Potato Fries:
I found these in the freezer section of the grocery store. I followed the instructions on the bag and added cinnamon and brown sugar when they came out of the oven.
