My little guy is 4! I can't believe it. I haven't wrote here about him starting preschool last month but he is doing great and just can't believe how grown up he is getting.
I rented this kids table from the local rental place and it was the best 20 bucks we spent. There were 10 kids attending and this gave everyone a place to sit and enjoy lunch and cake. We had fun decorating with cut out paper fours and confetti. My husband printed out a photo of each child with their name on it and we put it at their place setting.
This felt banner is from Target. I had planned to make one but for $12.99 I couldn't pass it up. I did make 12 yards of bunting using all my red/blue/green/yellow fabric scraps.
I got a bee in my bonnet last week and made this in one late night crafting adventure. I had so much fun making this and it reminded me how much I love to work with felt. I was so excited with it when it was finished that I went in to Johnnie's room and put it on his sleeping head.
He loved it when he saw it but after wearing it on his head for about 10 minutes he announced that it made his head sweaty and he wondered it I could make him another one that wasn't so sweaty! He did indulge me though and put it on his head again several times throughout the party. You can just see a bit of the "four" t-shirt that I made him for the party in this photo.
He wanted to have "fire truck, monster truck party with roundy curl finds and piston cups". We have no idea what "roundy curl finds" are and he didn't either but he insisted that they be included in his party. So I convinced him that roundy curl finds are made of chocolate and those are the chocolate curls you see here on the cake. The "piston cup" is a reference to the movie "Cars" I am embarressed to admit. I ordered the cake with no decoration and then my Mom and I decorated the top.
We sent the kids home with a cute little bag of two decorated cookies that my sister so graciously made and frosted. They were so cute. We also gave everyone a set of firetruck and monster truck stickers we printed at home. In all the excitement I forgot to take a photo of the favors.
Lots of fun!
