My little guy turned four last week! This year, Ean asked for a Lego party. We didn’t do a big party, but E got to have his three cousins (the ones who are old enough) over for a sleepover. We ordered pizza, headed to the park then came back for dessert, lots of legos and a movie.
On the Lego Dessert Table:
Lego Cookies – Frosted sugar cookies with M&M’s. I did run across the idea on the internet, but have know clue where.
Candy – Yellow Gumballs, M&M’s, Twizzler Bites and Lego Candy.
We used legos, stripy straws, cut out circles and lots of color to decorate. My mom and dad had bought me the wonderful cakeplate for my birthday…it was perfect! I designed the printables and invites. Jacob, Hannah, Clayton & Nora got legos & candy in their favor bags…which kept them all busy on Friday night.
In the past I have had some pretty crazy projects for Matt to do for the party. This time he was pretty thankful he only had to construct an E made out of Legos…hey it is basketball season. He did a pretty good job!
Little Miss had her first birthday party on Sunday! The original plan was for Saturday, but for some odd reason there was snow on the ground…in May. Since her party theme was sunshine and lemonade and not snowflakes and hot chocolate, we decided to push it back a day.
A couple months ago Matt & I came across this cute lemonade stand from Girl Inspired. It kind of created the party theme. Matt built and painted the lemonade stand. Amazing job husband! We repurposed one of the fences from Ean’s 2nd birthday party to help cut the cost and reuse wood. Everything from the invites to the food to the decorations were DIY.
Here is what was on the menu:
Pink Lemonade Fudge
Pink Lemonade Cake Pops (more on these soon)
The candy: Lemon drops, strawberry marshmallows & Strawberry whoppers
To Drink: Lemonade of course….but I may have forgot to take a picture of that.
A big thank you to our families for celebrating with us…and to my brother-in-law Josh for helping with the pics of Miss Nora!
