A SWEET Birthday

Still in recap mode from the Holidays...
Christian's 3rd Birthday

We invited just a few close friends for Donuts in their PJ's
We love morning parties around here...everyone is happy (usually) and the food is easy/fun to prepare and you and your guests still have the rest of the day free!

The Birthday Boy in his donut shirt and flannel PJ bottoms

I am so in love with all these wooden Melissa and Doug wooden food sets
these are the donuts...the kids had fun changing the "toppings" and stacking them all up!

(Kept the decor pretty simple (which was hard for me))...

The breakfast bar...with some pics of the Birthday Boy mixed in!

Hot Cocoa Bar
Also served little chocolate milks with cute red striped straws...did not get a picture though, shoot!

Mimosas for the Mommy's & Daddy's

Front Door...I love to do something really fun at the front door or in the makes such a statement but I ran out of time, this was thrown together quickly but it was cute!  A scrapbook page in party colors, attached with a big wooden "C" and lots of polka dot ribbons attached to a wreath

I about died when I spotted this donut ornament at HL earlier this Winter...I knew it would be says "Every good day starts with Sprinkles" so fun!  It hung over the breakfast bar!

Donuts, fresh fruit, granola bars, muffins and quiche were served...not to self make sure all donuts have sprinkles...this helps avoid controversy!  The sprinkles were the Birthday boy's fav!

The Donut "cake"...

Make a wish sweet boy!

Christian and "Isa"...his very special friend!
Lisa is a very special friend to me lucky to have she and her family across the street!

No games or anything since it was mostly little ones but we did have wooden color kits that were Gingerbread Men...cute and at $1 a piece a great deal... the 3 and up crowd enjoyed those too!

I also had the wooden donuts out to play with along with some other fun "sweets" in the form of puzzles and toys, and pretend breakfast food

One of the only family pics we got...I ordered donut iron-ons from Etsy and picked up some tees from HL...boys wore red and girls pink
I love to coordinate for parties!  :)

Friends...big and small!

your 3rd Birthday
was just as sweet as you are...
We love you!
