She's now three. How can that be?
Ha! Totally rhymed there.
About six months ago I asked Bekah what kind of party she wanted. Her response "Princess." Ten minutes later she said "A Pirate Party!" So, we blended the two and created a Pirate and Princess Party.
Let me just say (and Matt is so proud) this party caused no big Freak-Outs on my part. I started my Pinterest Board right away and really didn't go too overboard (atleast I think I didn't...I've done worse).
I didn't want to do character themed party because I just can't seem to do those. Shelby had a couple...maybe three, but I'm not that big into character things. I digress...I found the perfect invite.
You can order it here:
So, I went with a Hot Pink, Black and White theme. I transformed our dining room into The Party Room.
Little by little my designed changed (at least in my mind) until I came to this. At the last minute I created signs for the food and beverages.
Bekah loved it all!
Saturday was gorgeous in Houston, so we spent most of the party outside where I had set up games.
We also had a treasure dig and pin the jewel on the crown (which I didn't get a picture of either).
After awhile of food and playing we gathered everyone on the blanket and Matt handled "present opening".
This is what Morgan did during Present Opening time. She could stay in that swing all day and the boys were so sweet to keep pushing her.
Then we headed in to sing and blowout candles.
This was the best group shot we could get...they were ready to eat cake!
It was such a great day! All our guests had fun and these two had a blast!
After all our guests left and we cleaned up some, we broke open the Princess shoes and they strutted their stuff all over the tile floor - for hours.
|Not sure how her father felt about it, but Morgan quickly mastered walking in platform shoes.|
|Princess dress from Gram & Grandad...she's wearing it again today.|
It wasn't easy to get them wound down and I believe Morgan even slept her her princess shoes.
Just so you know that the pictures for the blog were a group effort between him
and me of-course
And incase you are wondering, Shelby was at a Confirmation Retreat this weekend and missed the party. She knew she would and was ok with it all.
