Sloane's birthday party was so much fun. We decided to go with a party animal theme, and I think Sloane approved. Overall, it was a pretty simple party (mostly because time-management is not my forte, and all of my ridiculously-overboard projects fell through once we hit three o'clock in the morning re-painting our living room the night before the party). Here are a few photos from the party:
Sloane loves fruit, so I made sure to serve plenty. Also, to go with the theme, we had animal cookies, animal crackers, and gummy bears.
It's official, Sloane is a fan of chocolate:)
We had so many fun friends and family come to celebrate Sloane's birthday with us. And they gave some of the most thoughtful gifts. I loved seeing Sloane's (and Fox's) reaction to each gift she got to open.
Check out this party animal! Probably one of the most memorable presents was Sloane's duck costume! She got it from one of her grandmas and it was just so funny and cute. I loved hearing my friend, Natalie's, reaction. She said she was watching Sloane open presents, looked away for a minute, and then suddenly Sloane was a duck! Hahahaha
Another highlight was the slip n' slide. I wanted to provide a something fun for the kids at the party, and Arizona summers always call for quality water activities. Enter: the slip n' slide. The kids had a blast, and I'm hoping for a chance to try it out myself later this week!
Plus, Camaron and I are thinking that, with all of the water the slip n' slide puts out, maybe our grass will actually turn green! Fingers crossed.
Here's a little time lapse video Camaron made during the party, just to help you feel more like you were really there:)
p.s. There were definitely a few things I forgot to do/put out as I was scrambling to get everything done before too many guests arrived, but one really makes me sad. As I was writing this post and looking at the pictures, I realized I completely forgot about the table runner I sewed specifically for the party. I completely forgot to put it out! Also, anyone know where I put the other decorations I bought for the party and have yet to find? I'm insane. I need a personal assistant or something. How did I even get myself dressed that day?
