My mom came in to town to visit and spent the last couple of weeks with us and was able to help celebrate. We had an eventful week and had a lot of fun planning a fun little party. This is the first time I have ever attempted to invite more than one little friend to the kids birthday, so I felt like I had to prepare a little harder and plan a few more fun things to do.
A friend of mine gave me some tissue paper to try my hand at tissue paper pom poms and I have to say that they are not as easy as one might think.You have to fluff the pom pom......but not too much or else you get a crinkled disaster!! They are worth the trouble though, even if they don't look that great they add a lot to the decor.
We had planned on 9 other kids (this includes 3 toddlers) coming in addition to my two, but unfortunately some sort of bug hit our area and only one other little girl made it and our little nephew. This worked out fine because our teeny house was filled to the brim with family too.
All in all I think the birthday girl had a good time and in the end that is what matters.
I am not much of a host or a party planner for that matter, but it was fun getting creative with it all. I am just a little nervous thinking that I have to do this twice a year now.
