chocolate dipped marshmallows
face painting station…again, another chalkboard that i simply drew “options” on with chalkboard markers
the picnic area…i threw down a blanket, candy pillows, and picnic baskets filled with fun activities for the kids…chalk, ice cream cone bubbles, balls, squirt guns, etc.
i put beach balls in the jumpy for the kids to play with
i always splurge on coke bottles for ella’s birthday parties. it’s become a tradition, and i never have one leftover. something about a refreshing coke (in a bottle) on a hot summer day
one of my favorite pieces. i found this hanger tree at an antique store..i knew i could do something with it! i decided to poke the “branches” into gumballs. i loved the way it turned out
as you can see, i put pictures of ella (from her candyland shoot) throughout the party
ella loved walking the candy path that went from the front yard, through the house, and out through the backyard and ended at the castle of course!
enjoying that refreshing coke
here the path continues outside..

serving up the ice cream cones
as i mentioned earlier, the adults had cinnamon rolls for dessert. melissa made pans and pans! here they are about ready to go into the oven! we served them straight out of the oven..and added ice cream to the side. heaven is all i have to say! see recipe here. we had a lot of leftovers so some guests left with their own pan of cinnamon rolls to go!
present time! she was so excited!
a martha stewart banner (bought it from michaels) i assembled
the party went into the night since we changed the time of the party from 2 to 4 (since it has been so hot). so we lit up the tikis! great for summer night lighting!
and our patio twinkle lights…everything always looks so magical at night..so i thought i would share a final couple of night shots and the mess!! haha!
ahhh…we made it! haha!
