Under the Sea Party

Well, It has taken me too long to do this post! I'm not the best at editing photos and with the HOUSE drama (we found our dream home, but AGAIN someone beat us to the offer, really heartbroken .) I kept putting it off.
I usually obsess over my kid's birthday parties. I usually do TOO MUCH. This year was way more casual and I really got to enjoy it. I know the kids had fun!
I did however get up really early that morning and make the party hats. I had some thin cardboard, ribbon, trim, glitter and paint to work with. I just went with the underwater theme, I think they turned out cute.Little sis made the cake which was so CUTE! We added the MERMAID WAND to the cake for pictures but birthday girl played and played with it all day! I sent a pic of the sketch for the invitations and this is what sweet Melissa of Fischtale Designs came up with, LOVE IT! Thanks Melissa!
We had a few kids over and had water balloon fights, slip-n-slide, and a waterslide for entertainment.
There was a backdrop of Mickey and friends from an old Disney Store display little sis brought home.
We did a treasure hunt and painted treasure boxes too.
Birthday girl has enjoyed her ROSE COTTAGE more than anything! Thanks Playskool and 5 minutes for mom!
P.S. Hubby wore his pirate bandana in honor of the birthday girl... mommy says
hubba hubba!

What, what an amazing party! I'm a pretty pathetic party thrower when it comes to those themed events. Yours is very inspiring, wow!

So sorry about the house, don't give up, sometimes people make offers that fall through so keep a small glimmer of hope alive!

Thank you for your happy words about my first blogging birthday, I appreciate it!

Happy weekend!
