It's all in the details....

Monday, June 20, 2011

With just under two weeks to go, Reeves' 2nd birthday party is closing in on me fast! Akk! I'm in that "things are cookin'" stage, but not much is completely finished as of yet. I have things half checked off the list, but still have alot of loose ends to tie up before I call it quits on my crazy party planning agenda.  Here are a couple of sneek peeks for you in the meantime though.

The ticket "cake" will be part of the centerpiece for the kids' table. (I haven't had one in the past and I thought it would be nice to have a table set up just for the kids to partake in the birthday cake eating festivities this year).  I'm loving my newly painted clearance aisle pedestal! She was a dreary shade of deep red when I rescued her but a little paint and I'm in love! Think I'll keep her around.

Cupcake toppers, a redone folding screen and some tissue pom poms ready to be fluffed along with some fun retro paper stripey straws are just a few of the other party details I've been working on and gathering up.

I gotta get busy folding up some more pom poms and all kinds of other crazy stuff, 'cause that's what us party-crazed people do for those nearest and dearest to us.  Ok, ok, I'll admit it....I just love dreaming up and executing a great-looking party, and as it turns out, having little ones around gives me the perfect excuse reason to completely lose myself in visions of pretty cakes, clever decorations and all of the other over-the-top goodness I see necessary to pull off a fun party. I mean, how many times does your baby turn two, I ask you?? I suppose the same could be said for three, four, ten or eighty, but whatever. Just go with it. That's most assuredly what I will be reminding my husband of the night before the party while I'm in a full blown panic over one thing or another and he has to deal with me. Sadly, I don't forsee any change coming in that department this year either. Oh well.  Love you, hubby! Hang in there with me! It'll all be over soon. :)
