An Emerald City Birthday

My daughter was about to turn three. Her current obsessions include Wizard of Oz, the Grinch Who Stole Christmas, and Daniel Tiger. So when we asked her what she wanted for her party, she exclaimed she wanted to be “Dorofee with a Emerald City cake.”

It took no time to head to Pinterest for ideas and we threw most of the decorations together ourselves. Below are the results of our inspired home made decorations and the Emerald City Birthday!

It all began with the ruby slippers!

Black and white striped straws and molded marzipan shoes. (Straws were $1.00 and the marzipan in white was around $5.00 in the baking isle.)
