We once again went with a Luau theme, I am a winter baby so how much do I love a summer birthday? so much!
We placed the chalkboard on the front porch to welcome our guests, this is always an easy touch.
I loved this simple icing style. Just smooth out the icing and then drag a off set spatula around the sides while spinning the cake, so simple and pretty.
I remembered I had a bunch of curtain rings that hadn't fit a rod , I used them to hang the streamers from the chandelier , this made for an easy installation. I just used a stapler to attach the streamers to the walls. Just two little pin holes were left behind.
The one thing about having both birthdays back to back is that I get a nice long break before we have to do this again . At least next year we will have a backyard to enjoy.
Oh I should mention one of the games I came up with for the younger girls. It was a balloon scavenger hunt. We happen to have a pond across the road from our house so we ( my husband ) filled about 50 or so water balloons and Sophie and I wrote random numbers onto the water balloons. We placed the balloons all around the pond not too far off the path . We gave each child a bucket to gather the balloons with. We sent them off to find as many balloons as they could . Who ever had the largest number won a prize. You could do this game anywhere really , I would suggest outdoors.
I found a local bakery that was able to print out a a photo of Mason's favourite boy band. Marshmallow paper , not to yummy , I'm just saying.
They told me landscapers are on site today .... I'm still waiting .I am thinking positively that we will have grass within the nest couple of days, we are ready to water some grass...
