Bubby's birthday was just a few days ago. His party was on Saturday. Everyone had a great time! We managed 19 people in our 880 square foot cottage! The original guest list had 25! Anyhoo...the theme was construction. My sister came over and helped me decorate with orange and yellow balloons and streamers. We even had streamers that looked like crime scene tape that said "birthday zone." I made a #1 that looked like a construction sign and put pictures of Bubby in it from birth to 1 year. My sister decorated the cake with construction equipment candles in a scene of a road, river and construction site. Hubby decorated outside with road cones and a "flaggers ahead" sign he borrowed from work. The children guests received their own plastic hard hats and sippy cups in the shape of road cones. Even the punch was orange!
Donald was so well behaved and received so many wonderful gifts. I put him to bed after cake and ice cream before a melt-down occured. He slept soundly for nearly 3 hours!
I figured the party would last about an hour to an hour and a half, but everyone was having so much fun that they stayed for 3 hours! What a blessing!
Hubby and I were exhausted, but happy after the party. Bubby just wanted to play with his new toys!
