**Linking up to It's Gravy Baby's 31 Day Photo and Prompt Challenge**
Day 8 - a birthday celebration
Since we just had to replace our hard drive finding pictures was a little bit of a challenge. These are from last year, but it was one of my favorite parties because my little girl picked it out completely on her own, and it didn't contain a character.
We were getting ready to go to Disneyland so The Boy and I gave her the option of having a big, lavish (read expensive) party at a pizza place or some other kiddie land or having a bbq at home and getting to spend some of the money we'd be saving in Disneyland. Nanner's made a very wise decision and was able to spend an extra $40 bucks on vacation. Smart girl!
We traced plates, saucers and a big can of food on contruction paper of all different colors. I literally cut out hundreds of them. The good news is that you can cut about 10-12 sheets at a time without mangling the paper. To add to her polka dot theme we taped pictures of her through the years to some of the dots. She helped pick out the pictures and tape them on. We stapled the dots all over the fence and taped them up where we could. We asked guests to wear polka dots if they had them. She chose a polka dotted cake. We got tangled up in a game of Twister. We had confetti dots sprinkled everywhere. We served polka dot burgers, or you know just regular burgers since they are round anyway. :) Most importantly she loved it!
