Yesterday was Elizabeth's 5th birthday and we celebrated with an Art Party!
We started with my talented friend Garrett making the perfect invitation to get our theme rolling.
|Then I made 20 art smocks for each of our guests.|
|We held it at The Kipling House in Marietta. It was the perfect place!|
If it had not been for Melissa and Dianna, I would NEVER have gotten everything decorated in time. Having them there kept me calm and got the job done in our 30 minutes to set-up. It's like they read my mind, knowing exactly what I needed and how to help. They also served as photographer, hostess, and clean-up. Wow! I am a lucky girl to have so much support from my dear friends and family.
Elizabeth was so excited when her guests began to arrive!
|Elizabeth loves the Southern boys!|
|Both of my girls love Reese!|
|These two toddlers preferred walking around while they ate:)|
|My big girl just wanted to hold my hand. So sweet.|
Elizabeth adores "baby" Reese! I swear Reese is going to be 13 and E will still be calling her "Baby Reese"!
|Pappa and Nanna really stepped in and helped make everything go smoothly|
Our friends are the best!
After the celebration part, we went back to finish our projects!
|I'm so glad Reese got to finish her project since I stole her mama to help me get the party ready!|
|E was on cloud 9 the entire time!|
|Noah's mama made her cake. It was beautiful and delicious!|
|Caroline refused any family pictures (that's what happens when you skip nap time). This is the best I could get of my two girls.|
|Finished projects (minus a few who were finishing up)|
|The birthday girl was so exhausted, but she found the energy to open presents when we got home!|
|They call this the Pappa Train!|
This was such a fun party and great way to celebrate my first baby turning 5! It was perfect for her. She loves everything crafty and artsy, and I love that she was able to help me plan and prepare for it all!
Happy Birthday Elizabeth Joy! I hope you had the best birthday ever!!
