The party is a little over a month away but I've taken advantage of some major motivation I've had to get things together and thought I'd share some of the highlights...
"Look whoo's turning 2"...yep, that's the theme...cheesiness to the max...but shouldn't it be for a 2 year old's birthday party?!?! We are going with the owl theme this year which was completely inspired by Addie's halloween costume last year (here are some pictures). Bright pinks and oranges will be the colors and we are planning to host a much smaller gig than last year. Here are a few sneak peaks of some decorations I
made purchased (let's be honest...i'm trying to reduce my stress levels these days;)) for the party. We are planning to keep the food pretty simple and as always there will be plenty of sugar to go around. BBQ sandwiches (or maybe sliders...depending on how on fancy we decide to get), Miss Vickie's chips (a household favorite), mom's pasta salad, and red skin potato salad will serve as the main course....and for dessert (who are we kidding...thats what people really look forward to) it will be cupcakes and owl-shaped brownies (wish me luck on that endeavor) and maybe....just maybe some cake pops and/or oreo truffles (game-time decision on those). I'd love to hear what you guys have planned so feel free to share your ideas or thoughts!!!
I can't wait to share all of the post party pics and give credit to the wonderful folks who were able to make my decorating dreams a reality!!!
