A-chan's 9th birthday was this past weekend. I can't believe she's 9! How did she suddenly become so grown up? Her birthday party theme was Monster High which she loves. She's also dressing up as a Monster High character for Halloween. So we went all out with Monster High everything, including a bento. My girl even made her own birthday cake this year (with a little help from a great friend) which was, of course, a Monster High cake. I am so proud of her.
In the bento: Rice, veggie hotdogs, steamed broccoli, baby corn, grapes and a strawberry.
The Skullette was cut from nori, provolone cheese and pink egg sheet. The letters were cut from American cheese. I wanted to do a more complicated birthday bento, but kept it simple so that I could also work on making her school birthday treat.
For her school party this year she decided on a healthier approach to treats instead of cupcakes. I absolutely loved doing the rainbow fruit skewers! Not only was it fun but man was it easier than making 32 cupcakes.
