What did you create this weekend?

Well, my little princess turned 2 on Saturday..... I spent the whole week last week planning and creating for her party. The picture up above is the birthday girl with the princess hat that she decorated at the party. The boys had crowns to do.

I had an area set up for the kids to build with blocks or to play dress up. There was a whole box full of fun dress up things for them. Jaydin seemed to love the hat, gloves and scarves. I think she looks mahhhh-velous!

This is her 'throne.' It seems that the little ones always want to help the birthday child unwrap gifts and explore his/her new treasures. This was the solution I came up with. Jaydin sat on her throne to unwrap, and the other kids stayed on the floor. It worked pretty well.

Last year, we showed a slideshow of pictures from her first year. This year, I decided to make a collage board of pictures from the last year. Wow. She has changed so much. She's not a baby anymore.

Goody, goody!!! The goody bags were personalized with a crown. With the ribbon on them, the crowns can be used for a door hanger or something similar. Along with the frames, treasure boxes, and hats/crowns they made, they had candy, a fairy princess (or a frog for the boys!!), and crayons in their bags.

The cakes ..... I hope you can tell that they are crowns. They are made out of cupcakes and iced as 2 full cakes. We ended up with only a few cupcakes left (especially after my pregnant niece took some home!!! LOL!!) and started with 68 on the two cakes combined. What do you think?? I thought they were pretty good for the first time I've ever made something like this. Now, keep in mind that I'm the Queen bee ... NOT the royal cake decorator....

Now ... it's time for us to rest. Jaydin slept for over 3 hours today. She's a tired little girl. I'd love to get time to make the thank you cards done this week, but there are other things that I need to do first. If I manage to get them designed, I will post them on here.

I forgot to mention ...... we had *50* people at this party ..... yes, at a 2 year old's party ......

Have a great night - and a great, big, beautiful tomorrow!
