Time Flies: Airplane Birthday Party

Brenner's party was sort of thrown together last minute.

I think part of the reason was that I was in major denial that my baby wasn't going to be a baby anymore. 

So I was doing that whole, if I don't plan it, maybe it won't actually be true thing. 

Strangely, it doesn't work like that.


I found the invitations on Etsy, from the Parchment Paper.

Simple and cute.

Maybe too simple.  I lacked inspiration.


And then my girl, Alicia, over at Palmetto Prints (please go check out her darling invites!) saved the day with these adorable printables that gave me the boost I needed.

Then I sort of just shopped our house for everything else.

Made Nate Berkus proud.

Flowers brought home to me by Brecken the night before.  Needed to display.

I even took the time to update Brenner's baby book.

I hit up Costco for all food choices, because with babies and toddlers, this girl wasn't prepping anything.

And then of course, little man got his first real taste of sugar.

I had high hopes that we would be adding another sweet tooth to the family.

Brecken LOVED his cake.

Brenner.  Well....

His brother even tried to show him how you do it...

It was his party, and he was going to cry if he wanted to.

I think by far, my most favorite thing from the party, was Brenner's "Time Flies" pennant banner I made that now hangs in his room. {Tutorial here}

I loved just going through all of our pictures, seeing how much he has changed, and blossomed, in the last year.

So there you have it.  

Party details.

And my baby isn't a baby anymore. 

Wah wah.

About Me

My photo
I married my best friend in 2006, and we started a family in 2010. Our house is still a work in progress in becoming a home - who knew there would be so many projects with new construction?! I love flavored coffee creamers, reality TV and anything Husky sports-related. My confession is that I only make boxed cookies, don't do grocery delivery (they don't have samples!), and am slightly obsessed with being a mom to boys.
