Happy #8, M!

My kids are growing up, y'all. And last weekend we had a party for the littler of my littles (though they really are not so little any more). Miss M turned 8!  We had a small, backyard party that she helped plan. She also helped with some of the favors and decorations. Our theme was "magical rainbow" - and here's a bit of what we put together...

Wreath for the front door with removable number 8. As you can see, I hadn't actually attached it at this point. 

Water bottles - and plenty of them - since the weather would be pretty warm, even for a party in the morning. 

Tissue paper pins for decorations - eventually hung underneath the canopy we set up (to provide some shade for the refreshments). 

Party favors in progress - magic wands, of course! These were definitely a team effort - and so much fun!  Each party-goer got their own color or wand, silly string, and goody bag (see other items in the background).

Cake pops!!! So yummy! And all 35 disappeared between party goers and parents (Miss M is ever the hostess, so she gave them to parents as they picked up their kids from the party).  Which was good, since I knew I'd be baking a layer cake for her actual birthday.

The refreshment table. I didn't get a good pic of the poms hanging underneath - but they really added a lot!

It was such a low-key, fun morning! Additional festivities and pictures to follow - her real birthday wasn't for a couple more days!
