It’s official…I knocked this one out of the park!
M’s birthday party was this past weekend, and I promised some pics and a play by play so buckle up cause here we GO! GO! GO! GO! on an adventure! The thinga-majigger is up and away!!!
M’s outfit was perfect! Black leggings with red and white striped legwarmers with a mini hat in red… it was awesome and everyone loved it! The decorations were killer – red and white twisted streamers from the ceiling, pompom flowers, fish and hat cut-outs all over the room, balloons, signs, goldfish centre pieces, candy table, cake & cupcakes (made by a friend who did a totally amazing job), and cake-pops (made by another friend and they were perfect!).
The food was awesome (all done by my Mom, for 65 people…yep 65 people!!) which included Hooey Gooey Lasagna, Green Eggs and Ham Quiche, Cindy Lou Spring Mix, Whoville Penne, Grinch Greek salad among a ton of other goodies! People were asking who we got to cater the food Ches’ Mom! Our friend’s come hungry, they know how we roll.
The Cat in the Hat made an appearance to read the little guys the book. After they had their face painted, put on their stovepipe hat and had their picture taken in my make-shift photo booth (which everyone loved by the way).
Overall it was a total success! Everyone had a great time! It took 8 weeks of planning for the quickest 3 hours of my life! Everyone seems to think I missed my calling by not being a party planner! So if you’re looking for some ideas or have a theme and need some suggestions shoot me a message. Take a look at a few pics and let me know what you think! How’d I do??
