Alligator Affair

This morning, Sister and her Mister pulled off the most fetching little summer soiree for sweet Bird’s second birthday celebration!  As usual, no detail was left untended to.  Feast your eyes on this alligator themed affair!

Boxes of balloons, filled with gumballs and wrapped in festive party papers flanked the table.  Sister impressively created all of the party printables and decor herself.

The guest of honor’s seat and party hat.

Guests snacked on all sorts of little-friendly small bites and many enjoyed their very first Coke ICEE.  a rite of passage in the South!

I dutifully dolled up this Target dump truck for little Bird about five minutes before the party with a yellow paint pen.  (He also got a gift card for the red wagon his mommy has been pining over.)  And Mimi stole the show with her themed wrapping.

The baby pool all ready for little party goers!  And oodles of orange and turquoise floats.

The kids (and moms) swooned over the precious beach bucket favors!

HaPpY sEcOnD bIrThDaY bIrD!!!!

The PCP, Cookie and Bird waiting on guests to arrive.

I was just smitten with the all of the party details and we ALL had a splendid afternoon celebrating one of the most adored baby boys in the world.

Now the littles are napping, Honey is golfing and my house is incredibly and unusually quiet.  Think I’ll savor some good rags and a glass of sweet tea before heading out on DATE NIGHT tonight!!
