O.K. I know, it's been a while.
I'm sorry. Really, I am. Sometimes life just gets the best of us and days turn into weeks, and weeks turn into months. But I'm back, (to let you know, I can really break it down....). Alright, alright. I'm focusing, promise. These are the long awaited photos of the b-day parties!
Zander was born exactly 6 years ago on August 25, 2006. That day when my little boy was handed to me, I knew I was in love. We celebrated that special day with a bang. Pirates were his theme, and he generously shared his special day with his lil sis, Piper. (I doubt I'll be able to get away with that for too much longer). Piper turned three on August 28.
I always knew my favorite color was pink, but on this day it was justified. She was so beautiful.
We celebrated her birthday with a mermaid theme.
The food was so much fun to put together. We celebrated their parties at Landfall Country Club. I came up with the ideas and Mrs. Judy ( a god-send) made it happen. I perused several blogs and stayed up late night Pinterest stalking party planners. The kids loved it!
The ocean water was just the reg with blue food coloring. The candy bags consisted of rock candy, gummy worms(fish bait), and salt water taffy. We did a watermelon fruit basket (bucket and shovel), pirates booty (nom, nom), gold fish (catch of the day), and jello with oranges (pirate ships in the ocean). All of this was a hit!
Zander wanted a pirate theme, so we pulled out all of the stops. He had so much fun!
The gift bags were fun to make! My blush girls helped a ton!
Piper felt like a princess in her mermaid tail. It was wearable and oh-so-cute! I loved the jelly fish umbrella, nice touch, Mrs. Judy. She also made the necklaces with pearls in them!
The little girls fell in love!
Better late than never! The balloons made a grand enhance just as the party was getting started!
Our friend Josh Lee came dressed as a pirate! The girls were swooning.
The party was a blast. The kids had fun, and the adults got to watch without lifting a finger.
That is a success in itself. This was the first year that I was able to enjoy myself.
Hire it done, people.
Sutton Grier is next! She will be two in November!
Everyone loves a party, what are some of the themes you've used?
Do you have any original ideas?
