Here's how it all turned out. The theme is Princess(es) and the Pea
Pin the Pea on the mattress:
My good friends daughter, Chessa, knows how to make balloon animals. She made some at our neighborhood 24th of July party. Ever since then I wanted her to be able to come and make balloon animals for the girls at their party. She was amazing. Not only did she make the cutest animals but she helped with the girls whenever possible. She's so, so great with kids!
Family photo op:
I think this was my favorite part. I made 41 little mattresses and painted 8 little dolls for the girls to get their choice and make their own princess and the pea. I think it turned out really cute. (Not to toot my own horn or anything.)
Closeup of Charity's dolls and beds. The one on the left is my favorite. It makes me proud she latched onto that one and wouldn't let it go. :)
It was a cute little keepsake the girls could take home with them in addition to their balloons. The girls really seemed to love the little dolls and mattresses.
Harmony pretending to go "night, night" on the mattresses. Ha! So cute!
Opening Presents: They got jackets, shoes, outfits, toys, dress up items, aprons, coloring books, books, hair bows, pom poms, buckets, etc. They are really blessed little girls.
The only gifts Chuck and I gave the girls are the mini mouse shoes. We have more but they're not quite ready yet. That's okay though because it's not their real birthday yet. Whew!
It all turned out so, so well. It was JUST like I envisioned. Well, except for the cakes. :(
Now that you think I'm talented and creative I'll reveal my secret. I totally stole all of my ideas from this blog that made a way cuter party but I LOVED our version. I think mine is just a little simplified which I did for my own sanity and check book but that's okay. I'm totally happy for the inspiration and for how my lil party turned out.
All the girls were little angels, and so nice and cute together. I think we all had a great time. It turned out perfectly. Thank you to our dear friends for participating and helping to celebrate our sweet babes life. We'll do a dinner with the rest of Chuck's family tomorrow. Happy Birthday my little angels!!! It's been the BEST two years of. my. life!!!
