Birthdays!

It's been a crazy couple of weeks. Christian and Luke both had birthdays - Christian turned 3 and Luke was 1! - so we split the difference and had a Vintage Toys party for both of them. It was so much fun! I got a lot of inspiration from this darling party, but I like to keep things simple and I didn't want to completely blow my budget ($40 for the whole party!).


Invitations were made with "borrowed" scrapbook paper and stamps. "Borrowed" because I could not find anything in town that I liked and no time or inclination to shop out of town.



These cookies were every bit as much fun to make as they were to eat! And they were really yummy!



I bought myself a cookie jar to use for the party...and because I think mommies should get a present, too.



I found alphabet charts at the dollar store and thought they were suitably "vintage."



The cake was red velvet on the inside...




Luke enjoyed it.




Christian enjoyed the presents...except for the ones he was scared of. We don't know why - he loved them later:)

Oh my word, Shannon. I always knew you're amazing, but you continually surprise me with your sheer martha-stewart-only-cooler-ness.

Oh you are so sweet! It was really, really laid back though...I wish you had been here!
