The Birthday Party!!

We had AJ's 2nd birthday party this morning. These were the details!

The birthday boy
The birthday party invitation. I drew, colored and cut out George and then added the balloons. Obviously Curious George was the theme...

I was trying to make the cupcakes look like George the best I could. Although they really don't look like George, at least they look like monkeys! The cake and frosting were both homemade. I gave up sweets for Lent... so I have no idea if they were any good or not! I didn't even lick the batter (or chocolate chip cookie dough) off my fingers.

I made a paper banner that I figured I'd use every year. The colors are masculine and neutral so it can be used for anyone.

The goodie bags included a CD mix of kids songs (mostly by They Might Be Giants, Barenaked Ladies, Jack Johnson & Lisa Loeb- music that I can tolerate as well!!) and Curious George masks that I made.
All in all it was a great birthday party. I was glad with all the little handmade details!

Very impressive and creative! I think your cupcakes looked great. And...I gave up sweets for Lent too. :(
