Ethan's Party!

It's only April and it's been quite the year so far! I have been severely lacking on my blogging....but with a 2 year old, a 4 month old and just moving to a new house it's been crazy. Our new house is wonderful though, Ethan is loving having a backyard to play in!

It was Ethan's 2nd birthday party on April 9th, and it was so much fun! It was a frog themed party, but I ran out of time to make those tissue paper poof balls, and I forgot to hang up the crepe paper! Oops. We just moved like a week and a half before the party, so I was a little frazzled lol.

The invitation was from Whirlibird on Etsy, she did such a cute job.

The cake was inspired by this cake at Cookies and Cups. It's a funfetti cake with a brownie filling! So the cake was layered funfetti, chocolate frosting, brownie, chocolate frosting then another layer of funfetti. I tinted the frosting blue and stuck some candy Wilton leaves I got at Walmart. The frogs are some plastic Easter eggs from Target that I only used the top half for.

Using the tutorial at Oopsy Daisy, I made a birthday subway art!

A felt happy birthday banner!

My balloon wreath!

To make the eyes I just cut a marshmallow in half and dotted them with black decorating gel.

The birthday boy :)

Most of the food was supplied by my Mom and my Aunt, that helped so much! I really appreciated it. 

Now on to Easter!

  1. I have been to a lot of birthday parties. I have never seen one that was better decorated, or had better tasting cakes and cupcakes. It was a lot of fun!
