Tessa’s belated party Part 1 {the decorations}

two year old birthday announcement

Remember when Tessa turned two?  That was a rough day for me, but while I was away; my mother in law put together a little party.

However… I still wanted to celebrate with her two…(pun intended)

Just wanted to note: (all of these shots are straight out of my camera; no editing, minus the watermark.  Editing is eating up so much of my time. I want to just get the pictures right without having to edit so much.  I want to post more, so I will be editing less.  I kind of like them this way.  I hope you enjoy them too.)

We celebrated for this little cutie last weekend.  My in-laws came back for another visit so it was the perfect time to host a party.

Tessa’s party theme was:

Make a wish… and let it fly.

I used butterflies, bird and stars for the party decorations.

Tessa kept saying all day, “happy?”  I would say, “yes, it is your happy.” 

I love how everything came together. 

The pink, purple and silver look so fun together.  I totally scored when I found the butterflies and birds in those colors.

I made a very simple cake this year, and love how it looks.  The topper was made out of scrapbook paper, feathers, and wooden skewers.

I made this pink chandelier out of pom-pom trim, and the butterflies.  It was a nice touch. 

The marshmallow magic wands are my favorite touch.  The kids enjoyed them too. 

Ingredients: Pink marshmallows, white chocolate, silver sprinkles and wooden skewers.

We drank right out of mason jars, labeled with chalkboard vinyl.  Stella wrote everyone’s name on the vinyl with chalk.  Fun stripped straws added the finishing touch. Delicious Strawberry Lemonade.  YUM!!!

I love adding pictures to the table.  I think it is fun to see how she has changed.

A few fun pink pillows to the bench make for the final touch.

Oh Tess, we love you so much. 

I couldn’t have wished for a happier child.  You light up our home.

Stay tuned for Part 2 {the Party}.
