Phew, parties sure are a lot of work, aren’t they? Some parties are a lot of work and don’t pay off [i.e. our zombie party circa 2009] but this party was FUN! We just had family over. Just family with us is almost 25 people so I’m sure you can imagine it gets a little crazy–but crazy is fun sometimes, right?
Let’s start with the decorations.
I made a little smash cake for holden. I wasn’t sure how he would take to it but I was hoping it would go crazy and get it all over himself. This, however, was not the case. He sure looked cute, though!
GiGi got holden that vet clinic above [from target]. he LOVES to open the doors and play with the different tools. it just so happened that mr. monkey needed a check-up during the party so thank goodness Dr. Asher was there!
It was so so much fun but I am glad it’s over. I think next year I might scale back a bit ;) You learn a lot from the 1st birthday party, I think.
Thanks to Samantha from Papermints for doing such a great job on the banner, food labels, and cupcake toppers!
Thanks to Lori & Julie, my fabulous and talented sisters, for taking the pictures!
Thanks to my mom, Lori, and Allan for helping me set everything up and Jeff for helping us move a thing or two!
Thanks to Lori for helping me decorate the smash cake. It’s a tradition between me & her to decorate our kids’ birthday cakes together. Started a few years back and we’ve had some interesting results…
And thanks to my mom for icing the cupcakes. Didn’t she do a great job?!
