It's the little things... Pirate Party: [Turning Two]

Wednesday, July 16, 2014

I know, I know, we're going on week #2 of all things Tyson-turning-two-birthday-stuff. But that's how it goes and I love it. :)

Last weekend we had Tyson's 2nd Birthday Party - a pirate party. We decided for an 11am party, with a plan to play, have lunch and cake and then it'd be about naptime and naturally wrap up. Here are some of my favorite little things from the day..
We had the party in our garage and driveway/front yard. The timing worked so we were mostly in the shade and it wasn't too hot. I hung a simple crepe paper/streamer wall with balloons on top for a backdrop for the food table. We had shipwrecked chicken salad sandwiches, fish 'n chips, cannonballs (olives) and veggies and dip and water'argh' melon.
Walk the plank with 'water' and alligators!!
A treasure chest!!
Tattoos!!
Which ended in a mini-freak out by Tyson as he couldn't 'wipe' it off. I'm hoping this means he'll stay away from the real thing in 16 years.. :)
The boys had a great time just running around, jumping off the plank and having sword fights.
The cake!!
My very-talented SIL made the cake and cupcakes. They were delicious, adorable and just so perfect.
Tyson absolutely loved when we all sang happy birthday. It was so sweet watching him soak it all in and smile so big. I wanted to freeze the moment in time and have pictures captured each second, from every angle in order to keep everything about this little moment. He is such a sweet boy and I loved watching him have fun and get special attention.
It was a perfect party that ended just in time for a thunderstorm, downpour and a nap. There were many moments that I just smiled and melted inside as I watched our 'little baby' be a big 2-year old and enjoy his special day.
 
Most of the printables, etc. can be found on Tyson's Second Birthday Pinterest Board.

  3. My favorite picture is of him getting his tattoo! I'm am cracking up, Declan had the opposite reaction and cried when his tattoo disappeared. He wanted to be like Unkee Dan. I'm so impressed with all the details and glad we got to be a part of the special day. Thank you for trusting me with the cake (wink)!

  4. I LOVE LOVE LOVE this whole party! I especially love the crepe paper back drop. So creative! And I'm impressed you got Tyson to wear the hat... we had one too and the second I put it on Mason's head, he would rip it off. Haha.

    1. Thanks Elizabeth!! I was afraid the crepe paper would look super cheapy (cause it is haha), but layered together like that totally works, I think!! :) I was also shocked Tyson wanted to wear the hat, I loved it!! It's even come out at playtime a few times too, I never would've guessed..
