We had a great time celebrating Emma's second birthday this weekend. My lovely sister was kind enough to take some photos for me. Enjoy!
I made the bunting for her cake using this tutorial. I love how it turned out!
Emma blew the candle out all by herself!
The bottom two layers are actually red and then orange, but you can't tell in the photo. I was really pleased with how vibrant the colors turned out.
Emma loves to draw with crayons, so I covered the coffee table with a white paper table cloth and put a big box of crayons on it. It was fun seeing what everyone had drawn once the party was over.
|Not a party decoration, but I had to include this photo of my sweet Jack. He's getting so big!|
Emma loves balloons, and this kit from Target made it easy to add some. We tied some with the typical balloon ribbon, but used twine on others. I love how it looked!
Since the party was at 2pm, I didn't go crazy with food. My mom made some great white pizza dip, my cousin assembled all the rainbow fruit kabobs, and my sister and mom did the animal shape sandwiches for me. It was great having so much help!
It's easy to get lost in the fun of making decorations and cakes, but I worked hard to make sure Emma knew that everything was for her, not for me. I think it was a success :)
