Carolina's Colorful Birthday Party!
I originally had chosen "Wonderful World of Color" for Carolina's birthday theme - based on another Disney book and idea... but since we did "worlds" last year - I just stuck simply with "colorful". She is a very colorful little girl and I thought the theme would be cute, but also easy to pull off - Pinterest did a good bit of help. I won't narrate the whole thing for ya... there are about 30 pictures here, so it'll be long enough as is :)
|Color treats: candies, Oreo pops, vanilla sandwich cookies |
(pretty much to die for), & tons of cake and ice cream.
|Linda made the cake - isn't it purty? And weighed about 30 lbs.|
|Instagram pics banner - printed|
straight from my phone to Walgreens.
|I just loved the colors - so pretty to look at.|
|Mom put together the rainbow fruit skewers!|
|Mantle decorations included a felt ball garland I made, |
a print I made from a watercolor, a few cute pics and decorations from her room.
|Easy-peasy, colorful decorations from Target!|
|For dinner we had two pasta bakes - a sausage and marinara version, |
and a 3-cheese alfredo version - plus salad, fruit, and Izze's to drink.
|We opened presents after dinner.|
|The only rainbow leggings I could find were the kind that were true |
leggings (not pants) - but it made for some pretty cute butt shots.
|Classic bag-on-head party gag.|
|She did not disappoint.|
|Then, the best part - dessert!|
|Her face, while we are singing to her.|
|Blowing out all 2 candles.|
|This boy was ready to dig in.|
|This girl just helped herself.|
|New toy fun.|
|Had just about the whole family here - including Great Grandma & Grandpa!|
|We were lucky to have nice, warmish weather that day - so the kids |
enjoyed some outside time to run off the major sugar rush.
It turned out to be a fun, relaxed, filling, happy birthday for Carolina and all of us! A big ol' thanks to everyone who came and celebrated two wonderful, colorful years with us!
