Anthony’s real birthday was this past Sunday. He is now 2. I can’t even believe it. I feel like being pregnant with him was only yesterday. It is crazy. Anyway, Christopher’s birthday is this upcoming Friday. So we celebrated both boys this weekend with my husband’s family. Since it was the house party, I did not have to do all of the goodie bags and as many decorations. There was only a few kids, so I tried to keep it simple. Next week’s party will be more involved.
Believe it or not, I didn’t snap as many photos as I wanted. You know how that goes…..when you are hosting, you never sit.
We went with the Lego theme……here was our inspiration.
Of course I needed to make both boys Lego birthday party shirts. I created the image on the computer, printed on iron-on paper and just sewed a border around them. Anthony got a crown with Lego heads since it was his ‘real’ birthday….LOL!
I used my new Silhouette SD machine to make some of the decorations. I posted this on the door…
There were Lego heads and bodies all over the place….
I also got square plates from Walmart and used a Sharpie to draw a face. Yes, there were some relatives that questioned this. But, it doesn’t come off. Oh, well, you ate a little bit of marker : )
We had two cakes….the top one is from the bakery. But I wasn’t sure that the kids would eat it since it had cannoli filling, so I made chocolate cake for the kiddos.
And finally….I was able to get one shot with each of my boys.
First party is done and was a success. Now on to the next!
Thanks to delia for all of her great party ideas!!
