first, i want to thank you all for your nice comments on the invitations, and party favors i posted.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.

Photobucketwow!i’m feeling good and on top of things for ezra’s party this saturday. we’ll see if it all comes together on time.i put together these party favor boxes for all of ezra’s cousins for the where the wild things are party.i basically went out and bought as many green packaged items as i could find.PhotobucketPhotobucketmy friend caitlin let me use the labels she made for her sons party last year. i tweeked them a bit and used them to label the bubbles and party poppers with, “a magic trick to tame the wild things.”i also made labels to attach to some glassine bags with candy in colors to match the theme. the label says, “wild treats to gnash your terrible teeth on.”PhotobucketPhotobucketi finished off the boxes with some green and white bakers twine, stickers with their names on it, and some darling where the wild things are pins i found on etsy, from the shop, pin back attack.Photobuckethopefully the kids will like it!

Photobucketi finally got all of the invitations done for the big where the wild things are party.i ended up printing them on textured cardstock, and i was happy with how they turned out!i decided to tie the brown kraft envelopes with garden twine, i thought it would be a perfect “wild things” touch!i hand addressed them in a wild font, and got them all delivered! i think i may have gotten carpel tunnel, but it was worth it all in the end.i’ll post more party details as i finish them up!PhotobucketPhotobucket
