We kicked off the week with a really fun combined party for our twins' 3rd birthday and my little nephew Elias' 4th birthday which was also this week. The kids had a wonderful time with papa and linda.
Will even got some pirate action in between the birthday activities. and the "fin fin" friends (pictured above) were a huge hit all around.
A couple of days later we got to go to Elias' "blue's clue's" party. My sis pulled off a really fun time complete with notebooks to jot down the 3 blue's clues which led to a fun surprise for all the kids. Elias even got a "thinking chair".They all LOVED it!
Then at the end of the week we had the girls' party with the other side of the family.
(nana and girls, grandma, aunties and uncle, little cousin gideon who is man enough to proudly wear a pink party hat and auntie bethany)
Here are a few more of the party decor etc. The girls asked for a "pink party" several months ago and although there were a few times that sophie broke rank and announced she wanted a "brown and blue party", i pretty much held them to it since it sounded like such a fun and easy theme to go with. And rest assured, i'm fully aware that most of this was done as much for me as it was for the girls. i'm positive they would have been completely happy with just about anything as long as it included sugary cake and 3 candles. The fact is i enjoy this kind of therapeutic outlet way too much to let the opportunity pass by. There are so many great ideas out there. i'll try to give credit where i can. :)
i got directions for the poof balls from martha stewart online. the bunting is just scrapbook paper sewed together and i used the template from jonesdesigncompany for the party hats
the menu was really simple- just 3 kinds of sandwiches: pb&honey, egg salad and meaty sub, chips, then grandmas brought fruit and veggies, and we had punch and juice boxes for the kids
