twooooooooooo

last weekend we celebrated a very special day. you'll never guess whoooooooo turned twoooooooo....


these invitations started the whole process. i decided to watercolor the owl and then photoshop the orange polka dots in. then i printed and hand-glittered the bow and lashes. even i was pretty happy with the result. so i used the owl along with pink and orange for the whole theme....

at the last minute i pefected the buttercream icing recipe {thank you spring} and was even more happy with the way my cupcakes turned out. looking good is one thing, but when the taste matches up it's even better...

one of things i decided to do was pack a lunch for each child. i was a little anxious about getting 8 toddlers fed in an orderly manner, but having a 'lunch' for each of them already prepared worked beautifully...
these hydrangeas made their way from harold's grandmother's yard in georgia. she has the most gorgeous bushes and is so gracious to send a whole bushel full for georgia's parties....

i love this picture because we have almost the same exact picture from her first birthday party. i love this little girl even more. but you guys already know that. so there you have it. year two is gone and we had a hoot. {i know i know, i couldn't help it} now on to thinking about the next party. you may think i am a nerd for all of this but every single birthday we share together i will go out of my way to make sure it's special just for her. because she's that special to us.

Hey! I figured I'd check out your blog! OMG, what a great party this was for your daughter (cute name too, Georgia!).

I sometimes wish I had a little girl, and I think about trying again sometimes. But, my boys are always there to remind me that one more kid...whew:-).

Thanks again for contacting me and I look forward to stopping by again!
