Summer is flying by around here. Ella turned TWO a little over a month ago and I am just now sitting down to tell you about the details! She had the best little birthday party….. Bob and I had just as much fun as she did!
I can hardly believe that so much time has flown by….I know that is so cliche…but it is really crazy. She went from being the cutest little baby to being a gorgeous little girl in what seems to be overnight. I wish I could freeze her right here….she is so funny, such a little chatter box, full of life and laughter, and has the best personality!!!
We didn’t have a 1st birthday party, so this year we decided to go all out. We had some of her friends (and ours) over for a little backyard playdate and everyone had a great time!
The theme was BUBBLES & BALLOONS! Two of Ella’s absolute favorite things. I can’t drive past the grocery store without her screaming for a BALLOON! We entertained the kids with balloons, a balloonist, tons of bubble machines, lunch & we entertained the parents with morning cocktails….mimosas and screwdrivers! The back yard was filled with balloons…which I was a little nervous about. I wasn’t sure if the kids would cry when they all started popping or if they would have fun…..but since Ella didn’t cry I thought I would give it a shot. SO GLAD I DID… THEY LOVED IT!!! I wish we had 200 more…they loved popping them in the grass. They were giggling & chasing them around like crazy. The balloonist made whatever the kids wanted her to make….they loved her & the bubbles machines were a huge hit too!
Bob and I hand delivered a balloon in a box to all of the little ones that were invited to the party. We gave the boys a yellow polka dot balloon wrapped with green and turquoise ribbon and the girls got a pink polka dot balloon wrapped with pink and green ribbon.
Here are a few of the 400+ pics from the party!!!
This is my favorite picture from the whole party!!! A friend of mine took this and I’m obsessed with everything about it….the little wrinkles in her nose, her squinted eyes, her fingers, her little laugh, the bubbles…the moment was totally captured! THANKS ASHLEY!!!
Ella had so much fun at her party….she is still singing “HAPPY BIRTHDAY” to herself and blowing out anything that looks remotely like a candle!
If anyone is looking for a theme for your two year old’s birthday party…..I highly recommend BUBBLES & BALLOONS!!!! Everyone had a blast! Hope you are all having a great summer!
