Zach's 3rd Birthday Party {2/1/12}

Wednesday, February 1, 2012

 I made the cake! {The recipe is a keeper.}
Thank you Camille Styles!
Cupcakes with Martha Stewart's Chocolate Ganache Frosting recipe.
*Easy recipes*

 Banners waving!

 Arrow stuck in the cake {with a cute fortune tucked on top.}
It had a really sweet saying on it and couldn't resist!

 Shopkeeping style--old cash register drawer. {I've had this for 12 years now!}
The drawer is filled with fortune cookies, wooden spoons, straws and of course party blowers.
 Luke had started a canvas and his background colors fit in perfectly.
Plain & simple lunch bags for treats and vintage roll of fabric to tie them up.
I always have a zillion detail ideas and only about a fraction of them get accomplished
{anyone else like that?}
 It's a party--the pennants are strung!


See those cute little jugs of juice; they are from Dollar Tree.
The twine; it's from a clothesline, red/white and from Dollar Tree.
{looks like thick bakery twine!}

They also have the clothesline in a green/white & blue/white combo;
 just cut it apart and tie up gift packages.

 We are blessed to have you Zach.....

@ 1:09 pm-- it was a sweet moment when the nurse said
you had red hair!
You make us laugh Zach Ellington!

Gotta run, Matt is picking up Chinese, yum!

Tomorrow I have more Valentine's Day crafting....
