Somehow, having a birthday right after christmas means that Warren always gets the shaft when it comes to me doing a big party. I always have my oldest sons birthday, then Thanksgiving, Christmas, new Year and then its Warrens birthday a few days later. By this point I'm always too tired to go all out. But this year I was determined to put just as much effort into his birthday as I do into my oldests'.
This year Warren picked a Pirate theme and of course we started with the invites. And my fave place to get them is from Tiny Prints. If you want you can follow Tiny Prints on FB, Twitter, Pinterest or on Google +. I like to follow them so I can keep up on their latest designs.
Ok side story: Because I am a really good mom (hardy-har har) I didn't even think to order Warrens invites until the day before Christmas and by the time they would arrive at my house it would be too late to send them to his friends! I was sort of in a panic and I decided to try and overnight them. Tiny Prints was AWESOME and I got them on my door step on Christmas eve. Warren was so excited it was almost better than Christmas itself. They were so kind and helped me get what I needed so quickly!
This is his pirate cake. I'm not a pro but I sure had fun making it and he had fun waking up to it on his birthday. :) It made it all worth it.
I got this erasable chalk board banner at Walmart for like 2 bucks. Bets 2 bucks I ever spent.
Ok brag moment: See those pirate head cookies? They are really not professionally done but I thought I was so clever. That is the bell shaped cookie cutter turned upside down. he he. Oh and I used the cross cookie cutter from my easter set to make some swords. :)
And this is the only picture of the birthday boy that we got of him smiling. He hates posing for pictures. :)
A big big thank you to Tiny Prints for making his day so special!
