So.... although I knew that Harper's birthday was coming up soon I think I have been in denial of just how soon! You have to understand, within a month of each other I have one turning two and the other going to Kindergarten. Kindergarten is killing me... I can't even talk about it right now!! Instead, lets plan a party!!
Summer birthdays are fun. It just opens up the possibilities and I am "planning" to have this one outside (which we all know means it will rain). The loose theme I am using is "ice cream and slip-n-slide". Basically I'm going to decorate with and serve ice cream and then send the kids outside to play in the water and get their energy out!
For me, a party always starts with the invitation. I didn't know whether to go with the full on ice cream theme...
Or the full on Slip-N Slide theme...
Neither were perfect but I fell in LOVE with this one!
Loved the colors and love that it gets across the whole party! Water, fun, and food.
Now, on to the decor. I am thinking lots of pennant banners hanging from the decks and trees.
Of course, a big ice cream bar!
Ok! This has been the easy part! Now, I need to get to work.
On another note, my entry closet makeover is coming along beautifully! My sweet husband is working so hard to get it done. He is a perfectionist so I've heard a few choice words coming from the foyer... but we will let that slide as long as he keeps working! Want a sneak peak?
LOVE IT ALREADY!!!!
