Thomas the Tank Engine Party

Thomas the Tank Engine Party

T is very excited about trains now days, so he got a Thomas the Tank Engine party.  I had a lot of fun preparing for this party.  It ended up being a lot of work, but turned out super cute!  I found blue, green, yellow and red balloons that said “Happy 2nd Birthday”.  I set up the party outside which wasn’t super smart since we are having a record high summer (over 100 degrees many days already.)I made little engines for...

J is now 6 years old and getting into superheros and technology.  He chose to have a Transformers cake this year.  I made a 9×11 sheet cake and frosted it with gray street colored frosting.  I added smaller squares of cake for the buildings and made windows by cutting mini marshmallows in half.

Bugs Party

We had a bug themed party for T’s first birthday!  I made bug balloons by filling latex balloons with helium and using rubber cement to hold them together.  For the Bee Balloon I used 2 yellow balloons and wrapped some black electrical tape around for the bee’s stripes.  Then I used tissue paper for the wings, black pipe cleaner for the antenna, and googly eyes for eyes.  I added a mouth with black sharpie.  For the Ladybug...

Diego Party

Diego Party

J is 5 now and loves Diego.  I tried my best to transform the living room into a jungle with twisted crepe paper vines, poster board and balloon trees, and stuffed jungle animals all around.  I try to decorate while he is not around so that when he enters the room he has a big surprise, I just love seeing him when he enters the party room.  I also set out his Diego books and toys for the kids to enjoy. We had rainforest kabobs with fruit,...

J loves to watch The Backyardigans and play dress up.  I had a mirror set up low for the kids with a basket full of fun hats for them to try on and see themselves.  We played The Backyardigans theme song and the kids danced with their hats on.  J also loves music right now.  We decorated with our usually crepe paper and balloons around the room.

Blue’s Clues Party

Blue’s Clues Party

J totally loves Blue’s Clues right now so I decided to give him a Blue’s Clues party for his second birthday.  I decorated with lots of blue balloons and crepe paper.  I love going crazy with the decorations while he is still so little because when he comes in the room for the first time his face lights up and he knows something special is happening.  I had his party right after his nap so before nap the living room looks normal...
