This past Saturday we threw Alex a Buggy Birthday Bash… and not just one bash, but two bashes! Before I go any further – I do not recommend throwing two parties in one day – way too much stress. Party #1 was 11am – 1pm and was geared towards Alex’s toddler friends. Party #2 was for family and ran 4:30-8pm.
First off, the invitations were designed by the one and the only Christine from Leap Frog Lane.
She also designed a banner.
I also used the A from the banner for the Loot Bag thank yous for the kiddies.
Some other decor…
(inspired by Christine again… isn’t she great?)
With the buggy theme we had gummy worms and butterflies for the kids, as well as a fun bug hunt. There was a problem however – it had rained all day on Friday leaving a pile of water in our back yard. I tried to contact the parents and warn them to bring rubber boots, but sadly many did not get the message in time. There were a few wet and muddy bums, but for the most part the kids did not mind.
And as always, I seemed to forget to use my camera most of the day. I was seriously worn out by the time the party began!
Dessert for party #1
By party #2, I was really tired and forgot to take pictures… again… even of the cake balls! And the ones I did take were not very good. I did catch this one. I think Alex liked them.
Thank you to all our friends and family for celebrating with us!
