Party Planning Mode....Fun Ideas....

I didn't realize how crazy it could be having 2 kids that have birthdays just 5 days apart. Mini Me's is first....I can still remember her telling me NOT to have Reid on her birthday. Good thing I complied huh!!

So this Friday after school she is having an Ice Cream Parlour/Soda Shoppe Party. Thanks to
Pinterest for some great ideas.

Her Invitations looked something like this photo on the right....(I'm putting the invitation inside the balloon...they have to pop it to get it out)



I thought this was a gorgeous table display for the party too.....Thanks again
Pinterest



and I'm loving the sign and print of this party too...



I'm having a difficult time finding banana split boats containers last minute...any ideas of where you have seen some?

As for dude......I decided against the Tractor theme and I'm going with farm.....Here is what I came up with for the invites....

First I printed the info on a farm card.....then layered it with burlap and rolled up and tied with ribbon....

then I tied that all up in a
bandana and tied to a stick for a little hobo bag.....

I love little Dude's face....he was
soooo happy (he's always happy) I love his scrunched up face!

These hobo sacks were a fun way to deliver the invites door to door....

I can't wait to start decorating....all the 'food' is farm related .....I love parties!

I love the idea of delivering invites door-to-door like that! Too cute!! You might try braums or somewhere that sells banana splits. They may be able to sell some to you.
