Party Recap

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.

    I actually bought the paper at office max, it happened to be on clearance its a removable sticker sheet which worked great for guests since it didnt move when they walked on it & we hand drew the bricks with permanent marker. Hope that helps.
