Declan's Pinwheels & Balloons 2nd Birthday Party

It was my little man Declan's 2nd Birthday two weeks ago and im excited to share some snaps of his little party with you.  After such a big joint party last year we decided to just do small parties for the kids this year with immediate family, but I still wanted to do a cute little set up to make his day special!

We decided on Pinwheels & Balloons for the theme as Decky is in love with both and we decorated with lots of bright, fun colours.   Declan chose a horsey cake from the Women's Day Cake book, which ive been eagerly awaiting the boys being old enough to do this and found it so much fun pointing out cakes I had as a child from the same book!

Bubble wands and a little bubble machine we had set up were definitely a highlight for all the kids, so simple, but so much fun!

Hope you enjoy the pictures, there are lots - but these special memories need to be shared :)

'Sweet' Pink Baby Shower ~ Real Party Feature!

This 'Sweet' pink baby shower comes to us from Jodie-Lee Hoe of Leegirl Pretties.

Jodie-Lee put on this gorgeous shower for her sister Melanie who was expecting her second daughter and the theme chosen was 'Sweet' because little girls are oh so sweet!

The dessert table filled with yummy lollies, biscuits and slices was decorated with pretty handmade items such as buffet tags and bunting, with a beautiful hand decorated 'Sweet' scripted word being the centerpiece.

Amongst other shower games, each guest was given a card to fill out with 'My best piece of advice I can offer you is...' this was then made into a gorgeous mini scrapbook as a special memento of the day. 

Guests were thanked with gorgeous pink swirl lollipops with matching handmade tags and the little guests were  rewarded with special goody bags and bubble wands!

Hope you enjoy the pictures of this sweet baby shower!

Jodie-Lee runs Leegirl Pretties who specialise in handmade items (some examples shown above) and event styling.  They are committed to making your special day memorable and enjoyable and aim to create an environment of joy and warmth in your home or office.
