Citrus Inspired Birthday Party

This Citrus Inspired Birthday Party was originally hosted by Carrie at Adventures of Gnomes and Penguin.

Citrus colors are bright and cheery. They are perfect for a party and using actual citrus for some of your decor is a simple and cost effective way to add some splash to your party.

Enjoy the party…..

Today was Gwen’s 2nd birthday party! I had a ton of fun planning it, and I think it turned out quite well! We had some great friends come to join us in celebrating, but I did not get any pictures of those friends. So thank you to the Claysons, Beth, Hickmans, and Ubertis! Gwen had a great time!

First I have to thank Joan at Bitsy Creations for the wonderful invitations that she did for me! She is super fast and does wonderful work! I love everything she does! She’s also a great friend of mine! Those blemishes are not her doing, I smudged out my address so its not on this public website.
