I finally got done sorting through all of the AMAZING photos that my friend Brooke Lorraine Smith took of Emmet's Birthday Party! I thought I'd share just a few of my favorites (lol).
Planning the boys' birthday parties is one of my veery favorite things to do. I try to base them off of what their biggest interest was (or what the "theme" was) of that particular year. For Emmet, his love of music started and grew starting with the song "Rocket Man" by Elton John back in October after my dad sang it on repeat while they were watching them one weekend. Then in January he fell in love with all things outer space after his uncle Kent bought him a book about the Mars Rover. So a "Rocket Man" Elton John/Space Party seemed like the perfect blend for a party for my little E. We made another balloon garland, obviously because they are amazing, and hung this iridescent backdrop from it, decorated with planets, rockets, and anything galaxy, and brought a few instruments for the little kids to play.
It was SUCH a fun party. We always feel so honored to have such amazing people in our boys' lives and enjoy gathering them to celebrate our little ones with the ones who love them the most.

I designed/printed out these song suggestions cards for people to fill out, we got some cute suggestions! I printed out a few photos of Emmet for a garland, but ended up spreading them out on the tables rather than adding another command strip to the walls... I also ordered a roll of my space fabric design as gift wrap to spread out on the tables. I love how it turned out!
