Recently, my aunt hosted an Easter brunch, and requested a dish from each family member in a potluck sort of deal. I was given charge of bringing an appetizer. Sure! No problem!

Welcome back to the second day of my Disneyland Party Series! Today I’m sharing with you the adorable Disney birthday outfit I made for H for his first birthday party.
