I like a good white ceramic bird and a party theme well carried out. Today's post involves birds (albeit, not white ceramic ones) and a theme very well implemented. AJ, Drew and I went to a 2nd birthday party this weekend for a friend's daughter... it was basically a sweltering day but they still managed to have fabulous food that refreshed and didn't come out melting right off the table.
This is the invite that arrived at our house a couple of weeks ago (of course, when we got it none of the info was blurred...privacy here, people... I'm like the Witness Protection program. :):
After seeing the invite I knew Lanna (our friend) would carry out the theme of birds every way she could. As soon as we got to the party I pulled out my Canon Rebel and started snapping photos like a crazy family member. Only, I wasn't family and had just met adorable Layla that day.
Look that these flower arrangements that were on every table:
Now take a closer look at the birds because Lanna made them out of felt. Cute, right?
These are my two favorite birds topping the tiered dessert stand.
This photo was taken before all the desserts were set out but I wanted to snag a picture of her cute Happy Birthday banner for Layla.
Wouldn't these little bird cookies be perfect for an Easter celebration? They gave us three to take home in our goodie bag... needless to say, three are now in our bellies.
Don't even get me started on these cake pops. If it wasn't inappropriate I would have sat at the dessert table and stuffed every single one of them in my mouth. I am going to make these for every event from now until I die.
Drew is a child after my own heart. He loved the cake pops. I love AJ's face here. :)
The favors weren't just the fabulous sweets... Drew also took away a truck. Which he held the entire way home and then while visiting Meredith at the hospital. Look at his curls!!!
Did you have a great Memorial Weekend?
Any fun parties?
