Chloe's Party!

Chloe's 7th birthday party was yesterday afternoon, and she had so much fun!  Everything went smoothly, which was great considering the fact that I was still rushing around trying to finish my hair and makeup when guests started arriving.  I was so busy during the party that I totally spaced and didn't take any pictures of the guests, which included most of Tony's extended family, my immediate family, and a few friends, so about 30 people total.  Even though it may have been a little crowded, I'm just happy to finally have a house big enough to hold more than 5 people at a time!


Here are a few more pics of the dessert table and decorations.


We also had a bean bag toss, which was just a piece of medium density fiberboard from Home Depot that Tony cut a hole into with his saw.  It was a hit with the kids!


Chloe really wanted limbo at her party too!


And of course we had a pinata!  I made the pinata using this tutorial, and it was a lot easier than I thought it would be.  (Don't mind our sad looking lawn...the grass is growing, slowly but surely!)


Happy Birthday, Chloe!

    1. Thanks, Lisa! It's her favorite cartoon, one that most people have never seen. At least that's what I discovered yesterday, haha.

  2. Hoooray! What a great party! I'm gonna hire you to plan my next party!

    My sister always has my nephew's birthday party at my house cause it's big enough for all the family, and I always run around like a maniac, too. I get so nervous hosting parties.

    Love the last photo of your beautiful little family! Happy Birthday Chloe!

    1. Thanks! Haha sorry, my days of party planning are over. I think next time I'll let Chuck E Cheese do all the work. :)

      Oh good I'm glad you can relate! yeah it's way more stress than I realized! Luckily my mom and sister came to the rescue at set up some last minute things that I forgot about. I'm bummed that I didn't take better pictures but oh well. Not like it's a wedding, right?

  10. First off... Happy Birthday Chloe!

    Second...Are those Cheetos on the table??? Oh man, you just gave me the biggest craving for some right now. I'm more of a crunchy fan rather than puffs tho. ;) I may have to make a stop at the store today on my way into town.

    1. Yes they are puffs!!!! I got them because there was an episode of Adventure Time about cheese balls, but I couldn't find the round balls so I went with the puffs. :) They are so addicting but they always give me a bad stomach ache!
