My mom always made birthdays special. She created fun parties for both my brother and me. I remember this party as though it were yesterday- but it was close to 50 years ago! She made a cake with a Barbie in the middle of it and decorated the layers as a skirt. What a novel and unique idea way back then! She was forced to be creative as we lived in Aruba and the shopping was meager. Catalog orders were delivered by boat!

Today is my mom's birthday. I wish I was closer and could plan a creative party for her. (Next year I will be a little bit closer!) Happy birthday to my wonderful mom. I love you so very, very much! Now don't you wish you could relive this day? I do!

Happy birthday to your mom! What nice vintage photos you have of such a fun event. My mother used to bake rings wrapped in tinfoil into each slice of cake. I found that a lot of fun, but the Barbie baked into a cake would've been fantastic. It doesn't take too much to make something a little extra special.
