Party Prep

I've been preparing for SoJo's 2nd birthday party this weekend, which means scrambling to clean, cook and decorate the house for the festivities. And if you know me, I tend to go overboard on these things (I'd definitely be diagnosed with OCD if I went to a doctor--but in general, it doesn't interfere with my life--unless you ask Mr. Geek for his opinion).
Since I had stored last year's banner under our bed, it was a bit crushed and dusty, therefore it needed some airing out.

We're having a few friends and their kids over, a total of 8 adults and 7 kids. I wish our house was larger, otherwise I'd have family over as well. I really felt bad not inviting the grandparents, though we're having separate parties with them (lucky for S). I think next year we'll go back to the family party.

I decided to sew some favors for the kids.
I decided on a car/transportation party theme since we have tons of cars littering the house (bonus: easy decorations) and after winning that huge Wilton cake decorating set, I thought that using some of the items for the party would be great. The set of car cupcake decorations will be perfect.
So the rest of the week will probably be pretty light on the blog posts around here. But I thought I'd share one more photo: my seeds are sprouting!
Yay for cucumbers! Until we meet again...

  1. What kind of favors were you sewing?? All three of my daughters' birthdays are next month. Originally it was going to be a baking party and I was going to sew all the kids aprons... but plans changed - my work load was just too much. No more baking, we're renting a bouncy castle instead!

  2. How exciting! Ugh that means I need to start figuring out Charlie's -- if we're even going to do a "party"! Having that many people over in our apartment last year was a little tight. And it was just some of her aunts/uncles/cousins.

    I love the transportation idea - car cupcakes sound perfect! Hope it is a wonderful day and you are able to relax soon :)

  6. Oh my gosh, Soren's 2nd Birthday is here? Where has the time gone? When we had parties with other kids we had them at the Children's Museum. My favourite birthday parties are the ones were it was just our family, which is what we have been doing for a long, long time.
    I know you will have the best party for Soren and look forward to seeing the pictures.
