finally, birthday party pictures! :)

Finally I am sharing with you some of the photos from Andrew's 5th birthday party!! :) Took me long enough, right?! Well better late than never! And a big thank you to my sister for taking most of these pictures haha!! She was my personal photographer for the party, so great!
Andrew and Mommy, right before the party! :)

Here are the finished bug cupcakes, along with the cake I made so Andrew could blow out the candles- they were all a huge hit with the kiddos! :) (And of course, I had some too. YUM!)


My lovely sister also made these perfect little bug headbands!!! Everyone wore them... kids, babies, parents, grandparents... everyone looked so cute in them! :) And they were another great favor for everyone to be able to take home. Contact my sister through her Etsy shop and maybe she will make some for you!!

The favors... lots of bugs and gardening tools!

We set up a "gardening" table for the kids to plant a flower to take home. Of course, the boys blew through it and went off to do other stuff, while the girls took their time and planted beautiful little flowers! :)

LOVE this photo! :) The gardening table from afar...

The girls planting flowers...

And the boys... I loved this activity and it was a great way to keep the kids busy!

And there's me helping out haha!!

The John Deere tractor was a big hit with the kids as well.. the boys were pouring water into the scoop, which quickly turned to mud, which then got ALL over their feet. Dirty, but so fun! :)

My little bug waiting for the pinata... I couldn't find a good bug pinata, so we settled on the cute pink and yellow flower! Andrew LOVED it :)

Trying to break it open!! A few minutes after this picture was taken, my dad gave the boys a golf club to whack it open, which worked like a charm. :)

As you can see, Andrew had an absolutely fabulous time at his party... thank you to everyone who came and helped make this birthday special!!! :) (Now we are onto writing thank you notes which is a big task with a five year old wanting to "write" everything he can hehe!) xoxox!

This is an AWESOME birthday party. I especially love that you didn't buy a theme kit from some place like Party City or Birthday Express. It's all made with love and the kids look like they had a blast. Wow. Well done!
