Today was the day that had been in planning stages since 2009! I'm not kidding, that is when I threw out the offer to The Perkins to host Addie and Ella's 2nd Birthday party, since Megan Perkins would have a 3 week old at the time. Megan P. and I have had SO much fun planning & hand making every single item at this party from this customized banner to the pull-string pinata, from the cupcake flags to even the party hats and every thing imaginable in between! So this first post is just dedicated to our memory and all the hours of time spent together orchestrating what turned out to be such an amazing 2nd birthday.
We had a slide show of nearly 700 different pictures of the girls together since they were 3 days old playing on the TV during the entire party. The front door sign was our first "craft" we completed together nearly 3 months ago. It set the high level for the party that neither of us shyed away from as it quickly approached. We made the "candy" as a front yard decoration.
The candy table was the highlight of the party in my mind. So much thought went into this from the 10 different kinds of candy and the polka dot fabric we found for a table cloth. The "2" pinata Blake found in downtown San Antonio and I turned it into a "pull-string" pinata which was perfect for 2 year olds!
