The Beginnings of a Celebration

It all started with this.

A simple invitation to a birthday party for a wonderful little boy.  

The invites and cutout man were inspired from candyland… I love the colors and ideas behind that concept, and wanted to do something sorta like that for Parker!

I made Parker a personalized autograph book for all the guests to sign out of an old book I got at the thrift store.

I made giant garlands made out of paper plates.

Mini garlands out of free paint color samples.

My hubby built and I painted a table and chairs out MDF.

I made lots of party favors and enlisted the help of my sewing genius MIL for the swag bags.

 And I cant wait to show you the final product!!!

The party was a huge success… mostly because of the wonderful family and friends that came by to celebrate with us!
