Happy Birthday Bento

Today is my youngest's 6th birthday so we made her a birthday bento to celebrate! This lunch is packed in the "lovely" box.

  • 2 PB&J on whole wheat cupcake sandwiches (stacked). Cupcake decoration is made from cheddar and provolone cheese, a CHERRY tomato, and some sprinkles.

  • Cherry tomato balloons

  • Cucumber slices with ranch

  • Red and green grapes - a couple with faces made with food markers and party hats

  • 2 starbursts
