Beep Beep...Choo Choo!

When my longtime friend Gabriela asked me to plan a party to celebrate both of her son's July Birthdays, I couldn't resist!  So after tossing a few ideas around, we decided on a transportation theme to celebrate everything that goes vroom vroom, beep beep and choo choo!

As always, I started with the invitation, Gabriela wanted something colorful and fun that would not be too "babyish" for Logan turning 3 and not too "big boy" for Landon turning 1.
It's no secret that I love clouds and hot air balloons, so I jumped at the chance to include them in the design.

Let Freedom Ring!

Fourth of July has always been one of my favorite holidays. The fireworks, barbeque, summer activities...and of course celebrating our great nation!

This year we hosted a get together with our friends. The day was filled with fun, food, swimming, laughs and of course fireworks.

I created an American Flag out of streamers as my focal point for the dessert table, it was a fun project but took some time. The picture below is from when I first finished it, unfortunately it fell and took a bit of a beating right before our guests arrived. A little disappointing, but we later used it as a photo booth backdrop. :)

I also created an area for the kids to decorate white Gable Boxes, which we later filled with hot dogs, veggies and popcorn for them to eat during the firework show. They colored the boxes and added star cutouts to show their patriotism. Each place setting also had an activity place-mat and a mason jar of berries.

There was a table of party favors for the Firework show.  We had bubbles, water guns, glow sticks, sparklers, poppers, airplane gliders, balls, straws and patriotic tattoos.

The kids loved showing off their American Pride with their temporary tattoo art....

As with all of our parties, we had a large variety of goodies to satisfy everyone's sweet tooth.

Another awesome batch of Sugar Cookies by Casey's Confections.  I put them on lollipop sticks for display.

I made the jumbo dipped marshmallows.

My friend Jamie made yummy dipped pretzels and rice crispy treats.

Yep, that's rice! I'll post a little later about that fun project. :)

I created this American Flag Fruit Tray for dipping in Velata Chocolate Fondue....It was the first time I tried Velata.  It was fun and the dark chocolate paired perfectly with the fruit and marshmallows.  Best of all, it was super easy to clean. You will definitely be seeing more fondue in our upcoming parties.

Jamie also made these wonderful dipped Strawberries.

I cut watermelon stars and made my eldest son's favorite, Ambrosia with extra cherries for color.

A little water fun...


Hope you all had a wonderful holiday! Thanks for stopping by!
