It’s a Two-Tti Fruity Party!

Today’s post is going to be short and sweet. Audrey turned 2 last month and we hosted a Two-Tii Fruity party. I love a good, themed event! We hosted at our home where Phil had spend the previous few weekends getting our back yard guest ready. We set up the food inside and outside we had the water table set up, along with a pitching machine and a trampoline.

Getting a picture of her is next to impossible at this stage. Here are a few from before the party got started.

Phil brought the lei from his work trip that week to Hawaii-she did not know what to think about it! HAHA. In fairness, it was cold!

Last year I made a lot of the food but this year I bought everything. I just didn’t have the time. I did make all of the cupcake toppers, wrappers, and the topper on her jumbo cupcake (all from my Cricut!). Target Dollar Spot was a great place to find the banners and some of the other decor that I didn’t get a picture of. They had a lot of lemonade stand style decor that worked perfectly with our fruit theme. I bought the pineapple banner last year because I loved it so much, it’s gold glitter, and finally was able to pull it out.

Cupcakes are serious business!

We had a lot of fun that day. What party themes have you hosted and loved?

Showered in Pink

Last weekend my friend Jessica hosted a baby shower for me celebrating the coming arrival of little Audrey. It was a great time! We had some food, some games, and of course gifts. It was great to catch up with some family and friends-we somehow fit almost 20 people in my house! Here are some highlights:
It’s a girl! So, of course there was pink :). We’re incorporating elephants into her nursery so there was also a smattering of elephants at the shower. We had banners, a clothes line, and of course the food was on display.  

   

  
    
 We did have a few games and one that I’d never heard of before involved taking a paper plate, putting it on your head and without being able to see draw what you think Audrey will look like. I wish we had taken some pictures! The results were hilarious. 

Audrey got some great gifts. A few that stand out include: a onsie that says “my big brother is a shepard ,” a drawing of her and a painted paper mache elephant made by her 4yo cousin, a hand knit dress made by Grandma, and each guest was asked to create an alphabet page which will be used to create her first ABC book. 

   
    
    
    
    
 I wish I had been more purposeful about getting pictures with people but I really enjoyed just being in the moment and soaking it in. Jessica and her helpers did a great job-I didn’t have to worry about a thing. I just got to enjoy it and for that I can’t thank you gals enough ❤️. 

 

Hostess with the mostess 😉

  
        

 Thanks again to everyone who was able to make it out or send their well wishes!!!
