This is as low key as I could make it. Hey, what can I say…I like a party! Well, I like planning and decorating for parties. Once the party itself starts, I feel like I am all over the place; missing out on the fun, trying to make sure I get enough pictures, keeping the food going. In the end, I don’t mind though. As long as everyone is having a good time, the hard work is fine by me. And if I get a compliment or two on the décor, that’s ok too 😉
Even though the main theme for Bug’s party was just a BBQ, as I posted about here, I thought it would be a cute idea to use watermelons as a feature. On top of all that, I wanted to bring in the 52 week photo project that I did with her this year as well. So I printed out each photo and taped them to the centre of the fence in the yard. I also made a fabric banner from my favourite fabrics that were used during the project to fancy up the fence. I initially planned to make her a quilt out of them, and I still hope to do that one day. Still have to figure out the whole sewing thing. I used iron on fabric tape to make the banner…not sure that would hold up in quilt-form.
Even though she doesn’t look too happy, I swear she was. Oh, and by the way…sparklers that just go out are still hot. Like really super hot. It’s been 2 weeks and my fingers are still blistered…
What’s a party without some pool dancing with your dad?
Even though I know it seems like I take a million and one pictures of everything, there are very few of the 3 of us. So I love that we remembered to grab this one…
So now that’s over….
I need another project!!! I think it’s time to update the family photo wall in our living room. I haven’t done it since before Bug was born, and we all know that I have a few (million) of her that I could put up.
