This is part 2 of my little's birthday celebration!
If you missed part 1 go here

Check it out,  details on the invite, party decor, food, and activities.

JANUARY 24, 2015

I photograph my family and develop @ Sam's Club
This was the invite and photo we gave out.
I printed the invite at home, mounted on some burlap squares
and tucked into an envelope.
Evites are clearly much easier & cheaper,
but I'm old fashioned and visual and tactile and sentimental
So my mementos solve all my issues lol

A welcome for our "campers"

Movie viewing

Baby M and Baby M!

Friends from the start,
almost 3 months apart,
and share first/last initial.

The last two are purely coincidental but not the friend part.
We've known mommy & daddy since THEY were teens in the youth group we led.
We witnessed the dating,
baby shower,
first birthday...
We're family!

I didn't have a photo booth area and truthfully I can't remember why
but that didn't stop the family photos.

Green lunch bags- Walmart Xmas clearance/ Labels- made @ home & glued/
Smores made @ home in oven

As guests left, I handed out thank you baggies for each family
with a few premade smores.
Unfortunately the chocolate was distorted somewhat
 BUT still yummy!

What's next?
More birthday parties!
It's what I got :)
