Birthday Preview #1

Brayden's birthday party is this weekend and we are excited around our house! I ordered the cupcakes yesterday from Walmart... 48 to be exact, with an even amount of red and yellow icing on both chocolate and white. Ofcourse, I had to get butter cream icing-- only the best for our guests and baby! I made cupcake toppers for the cupcakes. I'm waiting till the party to reveal what they look like! I will tell you that they do match the theme, which is (drumroll please).....


I went back and forth for so long. I had wanted to do some type of sports theme, but then I figured that he would probably choose that sometime when he's older, so I should probably have fun with this year's party while I can. I've always thought Fire Engine themed parties are so cute, so I went with that. I designed a Fire Engine in photoshop and then created his invitation. I figured you'd want to see his invite, so without further ado:

I think it turned out pretty cute don't you? The fire engine on the invitation is a key decorating piece throughout the party. The cupcake toppers, goodie bag tags and even his cake (that I am bravely making myself thanks to encouragement from friends in our community group this semester) will have the same fire engine. I also found cute little blow up fire engines on clearance at Party City a few months ago to use as center pieces on the tables. They were only $1 a piece, so I couldn't pass them up!

I can't wait to show everyone the rest of the decorations and party pictures. I'll reveal more after the party :)
