A Tweet Celebration!

Finally, a week later, I'm getting around to sharing Morgan's birthday. Lot's of pictures, sorry! The theme I decided on was birds. Here again are the invitations. I made these up in Word.



Now for the decor. I just love these things! I am definitely making more for Layla's party. Which is next month! Looks like we're going with an ice cream theme. Isnt that air vent ugly?!




My first bunting! I'm going to hang this in their room.




One of the cupcake trees.


Candy covered pretzels...




and marshmallows, in thrifted milk glass!




I knew as soon as I saw one that I wanted to make a photo banner with a photo for each month.


A little box her Nonnie bought for her, holding utensils.




And another little bunting (paper this time).




And the piece that I was the most worried about... the cake & topper! Pardon my less than lovely frosting job. I was in a rush and did it that morning before the party because I had ran out of vanilla the night before!



Layla has requested one of these for her cake as well.




To keep the kids busy, they painted bird houses. I found some really cute ones for $1.00 each at Michaels. We used leftover egg cartons to hold the paint.




I am pretty dissapointed with the pictures I got that day. The sun was too bright and there was so much going on. I was still getting stuff ready when everyone started arriving. But here is my little girl, heading out to see the dog.



Check out that cutie bootie!



Here you can see her t-shirt. She loves her animals!



Now it's time for cake!



But, it didnt last long!



Thank you to everyone who helped me with ideas on this party! I think it turned out really cute. Now I guess I better get busy on the next one!
