Ella's Birthday Party

I know it is already been a month and a half since she had her birthday party, but I never did get around to posting pictures for everyone.  Of course I forgot to take any during the party, but did remember to get some of the decorations and food!  It was a great party too.  We have a bunch of good friends over with all their little ones running around and the sweets were all just as yummy as I had hoped for.  We kept the decorations fairly simple, but used the rainbow/sprinkles theme throughout.

I went to Lowes and picked up a bunch of the paint swatches, which I then turned in to streamers.  I happened to have a few tissue puffs too, which are like clouds!  I had this in two different rooms.

I made a happy birthday sign to go above her high chair.  I just grabbed a bunch of different colored paper that I already had on hand.

I made her a personal smash cake with a one on top made with sprinkles.  We also had rainbow cookies and skittles to much on.

Here is a few of the spread and in the background I set up a painting station for the little ones with crayons, colored pencils, markers, and finger paint.  I even remembered the smocks too!

A rainbow fruit tray, so that the kiddos weren't just earting dessert.

Rainbow cupcakes with sprinkles on top and oreo balls, and chocolate covered pretzels with sprinkles.

One very happy and full birthday girl!  We love her to pieces!
