a party for the big 4

party

Sunday our little Israel turned 4! I haven't been able to completely wrap my brain around the truth that I'm now the mother of a 4 year old. It's true what everyone says, it happens fast.
And as with every party I've thrown, I never get decent photos. As soon as I've finished making food everyone arrives at once, the sun starts to go down and suddenly I've missed out on taking proper photos of the set up. But truly we didn't do much. I wrapped our gifts to him in white and tied balloons to it, made some paper accordian shapes for the tables and was sure to have a variety of little foods for people to snack on. And he requested Minion cupcakes which I made with Twinkies and some candy eyes. I just googled Minion cupcakes and found the easiest cupcake option! All the kids thought they were pretty cool.

Most importantly though, Israel had a lot of fun with his friends and family which is all we really wanted. You can see a few more photos from Sunday on my IG as well as the little scooter we gave him.


Happy Tuesday everyone.

  4. The cupcakes are the best ever! So lovely! I should give it a go for when my boy turns 5, he'd love them. Does your little boy love white? Just curious :-)

  5. I chose white paper because they were doubling as decor but also because it's what we had on hand. As well. We were planning on blue balloons but when we went to pick them up they were sold out so silver it was.

  9. I follow you on instagram and your life always looks so perfectly staged-but-not-staged. It definitely doesn't look like you've got a 4 year old running around that perfect house of yours!
