I have less then two weeks now to work on Casey's 2nd birthday and Aubrey's 4th birthday party! I am feeling a little on edge as I am so tired and worn down lately I just cant get it together. However thanks to pinterest I have a few ideas..Since its a party for a boy and girl 2 years apart one wants Elmo, one wants Princess its a challenge!
Instead of spending 20 bucks on helium balloons I bought 3 pkgs to blow up and hang this way. I will run out to Dollar Tree on that morning and spend 2-4 dollars to get some Elmo and Princess ones to float! Hello birthday on a budget!
I plan on making the food area more Elmo themed and the table for crafts more princess themed. Above both tables I plan on adding some decor I have on hand from previous years, clearance events etc. Trying not to buy much at all this year. The tissue paper decor are so quick, easy and cheap to make!
As for the cake I am trying to do something that isnt for one theme..The best things I could find was a rainbow!
another take on the rainbow!!
I also thought of maybe fish...
I have very little ideas in the way of decor but I am thinking this would be a nice backdrop for the table areas!
I am thinking pink lemonade and fruit punch in cups the wands in the pink cups maybe letters in the Elmo fruit punch!
Aubrey loves popcorn we are gonna throw some red and pink popcorn out on the tables
I plan on using her tutu table from her room for the little kids drinks! It will not be an extravagant but I have a ton of ideas so far thanks to pinterest! I also may try some DIY games!
Burlap tic tac toe!
