I don’t know who is more excited for their birthday party this weekend, me or the boys. All of us are counting down the sleeps.
You can be sure I will give you a full report post party but I wanted to share a few things with you before the big day.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. I can. not. believe my baby is 5 and then a mere two weeks later my other baby turns 3. Not to mention the melt down I had when I realized sister baby is 8 months. Can you believe it?!
You may also remember me proclaiming my adoration for navy, mustard (deep golden yellow), and gray. Well yes, they are coming to the party too.
These numbers were made with hundreds of small tissue paper squares that were wrapped around the eraser of a pencil until they looked like a small flower blossom. They were then glued to a cardboard frame.
These handsome boys will be atop chocolate and vanilla cupcakes that are filled with caramel pudding and topped with vanilla bean buttercream.
My husband is to thank for these adorable flags. He designed it in photoshop then printed the boys onto adhesive label paper. I then carefully wrapped them around lollipop sticks. With plenty of extra stickers you can be sure there will be these sweet faces all over the party.
Speaking of cupcakes …
… these are their hats.
Fondant circles in white with fondant legos. I’m doing some mini cupcakes as well.
Their friends will be going home with these beauties …
… boxes of treasure …
… loaded with a pirate finger puppet, coins, tattoos, stamps, an x-ray gummy fish, and candy necklace.
I wanted the party to be reflective of what my boys are excited about these days. Legos and pirates appear throughout. I already anticipate the joy we’ll feel as we stumble upon the images from the party years later. We’ll remember the days of pirates and legos and the uninhibited excitement from the little things like juice boxes and giant gumballs. As I said, we are all really excited.
And she wanted to say hello too.
Have a wonderful weekend!!
