Here's a picture of the banner, sorry it's not very good! The rest of the pictures are way better than this one but it's all I had of it.
This cake was great! I bought a white sheet cake from Costco and then had one of my friends decorate it for me. It was adorable! As you can see in the top of the picture, I also served little sandwiches of PB&J and also Jelly with Cream Cheese. There were a lot of finger foods. Fruit, veggies, meatballs, chips and salsa, spinach artichoke dip, cheese and crackers, candy, etc.
I found an Etsy shop for the door sign, banner, and centerpieces. The shop is called Emerald City Paperie and they had a lot of cute stuff and were willing to customize for me!
I provided the party guests with these little party favors. I bought the bags from the Dollar Store and folded them up myself. I found another Etsy shop named Sweet Pea Paper Things to do the pink elephant party favor tags. Very cute and I just easily stuck them on. Then I just filled the party favors with peanuts (because, you know, the elephant theme).
Another fun thing (that I got carried away with...) I found was a perfect dress for Emily that had grey chevron and a pink elephant on it! It matched the theme! So I ordered it from Happy Smiles 4 U.
Then, believe it or not, I found a skirt for me that matched her dress!! Except no elephant, which was preferable- haha! I ordered a skirt from Shabby Chic Boykin Bowtique and it also came with a matching bow, which I put in Emily's hair since we were all matchy matchy! I was a little afraid we would be TOO matchy matchy but people got a kick out of it and so did I :).
Emily wasn't really into the unwrapping of the presents. She kept trying to run away with what I unwrapped already instead of focusing on the next one she was getting!
we I opened all her presents, we sang Happy Birthday to her, had her blow her candles out, and served the cake!
We love our little girl so much. She brings us so much joy and makes us better people. She is our entire world and gives our life more meaning. Happy Birthday, Emily!!!
