It can take a village to throw a party and we love the community spirit of Gabe's. Valerie shares: The party was pulled together by members of the Arroyo Time Bank, a community of people who share services in exchange for time dollars in North East Los Angeles. The food, cupcakes and decorating help all came from the time bank.
Location: our yard in South Pasadena, CA
Theme: "light" cat theme (in the fabric, cake and sidewalk chalk paw prints). The cat fabric I found at Michael Levine's in downtown Los Angeles' garment district. It had a color scheme of red, yellow and blue. I liked focusing on the primary colors. They are also gender neutral!
Cake: Applesauce, vanilla and cream cheese cake. Raspberries colored the frosting for the mouth. Fruit toppings.
