‘Celebrate’ Joint Birthday Party

Having a joint birthday party for the kids was the best idea!  It turned out so cute, it was less stressful (for me and traveling family), it costs less, and everyone had a blast!  I am going to do the joint birthday party thing for as loooong as I can!  It seriously was so much fun.  Planning it was too.  I decided against any certain “theme” and just decided to celebrate our kids.  It became the ‘Celebrate’ party.  I picked a color scheme first and then designed the invite.  I had just made the kids’ shillouettes (tutorial coming soon) and thought what better way to celebrate them than have their profiles on the invite!  It sort-of became a reoccurring theme for the party and I loved it!

The party was in our backyard in the late afternoon and the weather was absolutely beautiful!


I covered the table with white craft paper added cans full of crayons so the kids could draw on the paper.

John Taylor made colorful little benches for the table.  The best part is I’m going to use them in the playroom around a little table!


I used the silhouettes on the cupcake toppers, too.  John Taylor made the colorful cupcake trays!

The party favor was bubbles.  I thought it was perfect for a backyard celebrate party.


We have this cute little metal stand on our back porch.  It served a great purpose and I added pictures of the kids from the past year in the glass cabinet.

You know how much I love burlap.  I painted large polka dots on the table cloth to mix it up from years past and years to come.  🙂  I made the stencil myself using the top to one of our pots.



I could kick myself for not getting a picture of the whole table!  These tissue poms were hanging above it.
