PINK


Next week Adyson turns 4. It's crazy to me that she is already 4 years old. Today we threw her a friend Birthday Party. This was her first one and she was pretty excited about it. When I asked her what kind of party she wanted, she just said PINK. So we ran with it and it ended up being such a fun theme. I have been buying PINK stuff for months, and had a lot of fun planning this party! I promised my sister that I would take a ton of pictures, and post every detail, so feel free to bypass the many pictures I will now post.

The invitations. They said we would be tickled PINK if you would come to Adyson's Birthday Party and also told the girls to wear their favorite PINK outfit.

Here is Adyson right before the party wearing her new PINK dress. She didn't sleep at all last night because she was sooo excited! When the girls got here they each got a PINK flower clip for their hair. I found these super cute flowers at the dollar store and made the clips, it was really cheap and the girls loved them.Next they decorated these cute little foam PINK purses.Then we played PINK bingo, and the prizes were all PINK prizes, of course.Then we read this great book called PINKalicious. Any of you with girls, I highly recommend this book. It is so cute. Thanks Shelly for hooking us up! Aydson loves it.After the book, we opened presents, and she got much too spoiled of course! Then it was on to the cake and PINK treats. PINK ice-cream, PINK cup-cakes, PINK m&m's, PINK homemade mints, and PINK lemonade. OH my. When I was done stuffing them full of sweets, they wanted to watch a movie, so they watched a bit of Fairytopia, and I thought they all looked so cute sitting together. It didn't last long of course, but they all sat for a few minutes peacefully.
When the girls left they all got to take home one of these PINK baskets full of PINK stuff.

Just a picture of all the PINK at our house. It was a super fun crazy party, and tonight I am exhausted! Adyson was pretty tired today, but kept telling me Thankyou and she also said she felt very special today. Mission Accomplished. Happy B-day Adyson, We love YOU!

what a fun mom you are. I'll have to keep that theme in mind for a future year. What dollar store did you get the flowers for the clips from? I need to go get Halli some, they're darling! Great job! You're AMAZING!!!

How fun is that? You really are the mom of the year. Good luck goes out to all your neighbors that had a daughter at Ady's party. They'll never be able to top that:)
Can Brex and I take Ady to lunch next week so we can get her gift to her before next year?! Oh, you and Sienna are invited as well.
I can't wait until we get to plan Brex and Ady's wedding, hopefully we'll be able to one up her 4th birthday! Can we stick to the same theme? PINK is a great wedding color!!!

Look at you go Martha Stewart! You did a great job with that- I really need to remember this idea. Ady is just so cute, I can't beleive she's four. I have 7 weeks left (yea!) and I have to tell you- I am getting pretty sad to give up just being me and Jack. I don't want him to ever turn 4- or 3 for that matter! Inevitable, right?

Bre said...

WOW! You are SO creative! I loved it all! The invitations are so darling and the flowers oh I just loved it all. WHat fun it is to have a girl I bet! I told Dax he gets a "Friend" party as well this year, but it is still not till NOv. Corban's turn is next week and Dax thinks he should get to take friends to that! He does not understand that Corban is too little and does not understand either. Oh well. YOu are hired to throw a party for my kids when it time:)!

Lexi was so excited. She couldn't stop talking about the party the night before. She had to tell me all about the cupcakes. Then yesterday morning the first words out of her mouth were "Today is Ady's birthday!" She was so afraid I would forget and miss the party. Yeah Right!!
Also Amy told me that your house is the best place to go to have your water break, so if I start coming over everyday now you know why! :)
