This year’s party evolved because of some fabric I found on one of my crafting hunts. I wanted to make a fun tutu kinda skirt as my little lady would wear a tutu every day of the week if I let her. We had to narrow it down to Tutu Tuesdays a day when she wasn’t going to be playing in the mud or on the playground at school nor have to ask others to deal with all that tulle. The fabric I found had owls and sweet girlie colors all over it. I made it into a tutu for my birthday girl to wear.My good friend Julia at the blog A Little Bee Told Me came thru for me yet again with adorable invitations.
Time to set the tables. A quick trips thru Michael’s craft stores for wooden owls and stickers were perfect to be sprinkled around the table. I like to have a special area for the cake to be displayed before we get to dessert. People love to take a quick peek at the design, as well as it gives me a place to make sure all items are out at ready like plates, candle, knife etc. My sister was away for the party this year but she found and sent along a special owl plate that the birthday girl used. Did a little set up of fun activities around the yard for the kids and adults to keep all entertained. Made the sweet little owls out of paper lanterns and construction paper and a flag for the top of the swing set in the same fabric as the birthday girl’s tutu. Let say it was a lesson in sewing triangles and took a few tries.
Playing with Uncle Steve at the sand table is so much fun. The sand table was also filled with purple glitter to match our theme.
Time for cake! Thanks to Audra at Mad Hatter Bakery the cake and cupcakes looked adorable and oh so yummy.
Everyone left the party with giant bouncy ball (pictured above) and owl loot bag. It made for tons of fun all party long in the yard, and it was a gift that would get used by a kid of any size.
A wonderful time with wonderful weather. Until next time, a year that will surly fly by. Enjoy being 2 little lady.
