My little Ellie celebrated her 3rd birthday this weekend! She decided she wanted to have a Dora Party. As many of you know, I am not a fan of commercial parties, but alas, Dora and Diego are the main people in her life besides her mom, dad, brother and sister. I really had no choice in the matter. Here are the highlights. I wish I would have been able to get better pics, but a house full of 3 year olds tend to put a rush on things:)
|The Backdrop was simple! Just yellow, orange and pink streamers.|
|My first attempt at "color flow" (with my mother's help!)|
|I ordered the favor bags from Etsy http://www.etsy.com/shop/designsbyLH. I then glued the faces on the backs using foam. The backpack for the girls and rescue pack for the boys!|
|Super excited to find these!|
|I cut the Dora characters out of books I bought at a thrift store for .69 cents. They always make great toppers!|
|Everything looks good on skewers!|
|I made these cake stands from plates I found at Hobby Lobby!|
|This Lama hung out with my all week for great color inspiration. I was really sad to see him beaten to death:(|
|The kids had maps they had to follow to find some treasures. They had to.....|
|run through the butterfly garden.....|
|over the bridge.....|
|and down the slide! It was chaotic fun!|
|Swiper even made an appearance! The kids were quick to stop him!|
Everyone had a blast!! This was one of my favorite parties.
Pictures do not show the salsa chicken and margaritas!!!
