The Big 3: A Pond Birthday Party

For their third birthday party Nola and Kira asked for purple fish, butterflies and a frog... a pond birthday party was in order.

I kept the cake simple with cut-outs of the girls from the invitation.

I made party hats with Holley's cute paper characters.

There were many copies...

Attached to the light fixture was a pink pom-pom extravaganza complete with fluttering butterflies.

The kids decorated butterfly wings with crayons and sparkly paper.

A pond party has to have a pond. Eric and I made this one out of 3 yards of felt - it covered the entire room and the kids loved it!

At the end of the party all the kids 'fished' for their party favor...

Purple fish - I lovingly hand-sewed 20. Phew.

The guests put their fish in little to-go boxes...Thanks for Coming!

And a huge thank you to Russ Loyd for many beautiful pictures.

Happy butterflies - my favorite! xxx
