Our baby girl turned 2! For her theme this year, I decided to go with a classic movie "The Wizard of Oz." I made all the decorations on my own with help from some girl friends and Etsy.com where I bought the printables. I work full time, sometimes more than 40 hours per week, but I got a head start and started planning since Oct./2011! It was a great party! lots of food, desserts, and candy! We had a face painter/balloon maker, we had some games, a pinata, a bounce house for big kids and a ball pit for the little munchkins. Overall, everyone had a blast! I could not have done it without my husband who supported all the arts and crafts I had to make, and my girlfriends & sisters who helped me do the finishing touches and helped me set up the day of the party.
Our little Dorothy of course in her tutu I made :)
delicious homemade cake from my sister in law, cake pops made by my comadre, cupcakes made by me, ding-dongs, lollipops, tin man kisses
Activities / Games

Let's just say I started planning since Oct 2011 and I got most of the items on sale/clearance!
gingham boxes filled with: tin-man bubbles, scarecrow rubber duckies, Wizard of Oz stickers, Glenda wands (for girls)

Yes I work full time (sometimes more than 40 hours per week) but I managed to make mostly all of the decorations for her party! I am so proud of myself for pulling it off and I loved every detail!!!!
