So much has happened since the girl's birthday party that I haven't had a chance to blog about it. I knew I'd get around to it eventually but I didn't think it would take me a month!
They had requested a rainbow/my little pony party but by the time I got around to prepping for the party I just didn't have time (to be read as "want") to incorporate the ponies so it was all rainbows and the girls loved it!
Their invitation was a labor of love. I went through 3 drafts before I came up with a design that I liked. I also printed the envelopes to match the invitations. Since their birthday, like mine, is around 4th of July, I decided to have the party the weekend after their birthday.
I purchased most of my party supplies and paper goods at Wal-Mart. I love that they have good quality supplies for close to $1!
I had the Spritz White balloons in my party stash and I made the tassel banner using tissue paper from my gift wrapping stash. The Rainbow balloon was purchased from Amazon and is still floating around in our family room a month later!
I used plastic table cloths to create the backdrop behind the sweets table. Right before the party I found the white trays at Target and thought they'd be perfect to hold the cookies and cupcakes.
I decided to go easy on the food menu and just order pizza. The cupcakes were a pinterest find that I had a local bakery duplicate. I could not figure out how to get the candy rainbows to keep their shape! The rainbow fruit cups were a huge hit!
To keep up with my tradition, my beverage station was stocked with Crush sodas along with tea, water and juice boxes.
I can't believe my babies are FOUR and starting Pre-K in a little less than 2 weeks!
