the party went really well, and most importantly ezra and all his cousins had a blast!
this year, i served more simple food, and focused more on the games and entertainment, since ezra is starting to get to the age where fun is more important.
here are a few pictures from the party.
"welcome wild things"
crowns and wands for all the wild things
the food: green apples with caramel dip, green veggies with ranch dip, palm tree cupcakes, chips and dips, and "wild thing" water
the "max" cake
games: pin the wolf tail on max
crown walk : we put the gold crown numbers in a circle, when the music stopped we would call out a number, and the person on the number won a prize!
we also had a reading of the book at the beginning of the party. and, the small guests helped act out the book.
"thank you" mints for the older guests that said, "thanks for coming to the party ... wild thing." and, of course the party favor boxes for the kids
the birthday boy
of course, i can't believe this little guy is three?!
he absolutely loved the party, which made all the hard work worth it. it was a lot of fun to see him so excited for his birthday this year!
until next year...
