TWO birthdays, ONE party

Since Ella & Lily's birthdays are less than 2 weeks apart we decided to do ONE BIG party. I am thinking we will be doing many combined birthday parties in the future.

Jake had this picture of the girls printed off.  Staples will do a blueprint size for only $3!

We did a dessert bar with double chocolate cake, angel food cake & pound cake.  Cakes could be topped with whipped cream, blueberries, strawberries, chocolate sauce & sprinkles.

We had a small gift for all our little friends who came to celebrate with us.

 The gift included: a note pad, stickers, crayons & smarties.

I am loving having this chalkboard to change out for different occasions.

The birthday girls all ready for their party.

The party was a drop in from 3-5 pm on Saturday.  I got my camera out to take pictures of the kids playing & doing bubbles in the backyard.  I took one picture, set the camera on the grill & then totally forgot about it.  Ugh...I wanted a picture of all the kids & our sweet friends who came to celebrate.

Auntie Em was able to come up for the party.  She was a HUGE help.  She washed & cut all the berries for the party - thank you, Emily!
