Sunday's set up was much easier than Saturday's.
|I shared this on Instagram already. Are we friends on there? Come find me!|
I kept decor pretty simple - a little Thomas goes a long way in my book so I went with mostly red, white, blue and a hint of green - but it was all up from the day before so we just had to remake the same food we'd made the day before.
|That wreath took awhile but so worth it. It's so fluffy and full I want to make one for every month.|
I was going to dip Oreos in chocolate to make coal when Boyfriend sent me this picture:
OMG yes! A million times yes!
Unlike previous years where I make pretty much everything, I was aaaalllll about shortcuts but still getting the same effect this year.
Pinterest!) who knew they would melt?
It wasn't even warm in our house! I made cotton candy a ton of times at Chuck E. Cheese's and it never melted. Of course, since this is the one original idea I came up with, I insisted we had non-melted steam stacks and was making the 2nd batch as people were showing up. The 2nd batch melted too, but it looked cute for a minute.
At least I got blog pics and that's all that matters, right?
Almost as fast as the egg salad, the chocolate logs disappeared. There's almost nothing better than chocolate and pretzels.
After the first few guests arrived, I suggested we put up the bouncy house which was a hit.
Unfortunately Sunday Boyfriend had to leave the party and help get my Grandma up. She'd fallen and my dad was pretty far away so B could get there first. We spent quite a bit of time sitting around waiting for him to get up but luckily my Grandma is ok an nothing is sprained or broken.
At the end of the day, I realized I hadn't had anyone take a pic of all four of us so I jerry-rigged something.
After about 8 tries, we finally ended up with this one. Not my fave but it could be worse and the munchkins have the attention span of a gnat so I settled.
