A mermaid Birthday

This post is long over due as Jada's birthday was in September! Oh well better late than never. Jada has been obsessed with mermaids for over a year now so it was a no brainer to come up with a Birthday party theme.
Here are some of the details. We had three different kinds of salads and had hot dogs and rolls. It just so happened that Gage's baptism was that morning so we had a full house. Thankfully it was a nice day so we could celebrate outside
6 months later and we still have the mermaid balloon
My sister made this great mermaid cake. It was three different kinds of cake inside

These awesome little labels came from here perfect to cover the chubby bottles of pop
I bought the mermaid pillowcase dress from here
And what mermaid party would be complete without a mermaid present.
Thanks for looking and please see my sidebar for all the great blogs I link up to. I appreciate your comments:)

My Cowboy turns 1

I can't believe my boy is a year old!
My boy was destined to be a cowboy ever since he was 3 months old. Yes, you read that right. When Gage was 3 months old my dad bought him his first pellet gun (The red rider). Ever since then I have started decorating his room and searching all things Cowboy. This included searching Pinterest and Etsy and I came upon this adorable Wanted poster, I knew Gage's Birthday had to be about cowboys.
I bought the wanted poster and hung it on our front door to greet our cowboys and girls to our party

Then I found THE cake on pinterest (sorry it doesn't link to anywhere but a pic.). My sister graciously made the cake and it was perfect!

I bought Daddy a matching shirt from Etsy
This was our welcome table. Bananas, hats and badges. All purchased from various sellers on Ebay
I bought these cones from Etsy. Some guests used them to hold their hot dog while others used them for popcorn.
Jada helping herself to some popcorn. Believe it or not the popcorn was the most popular food at the party

This was the table before the hot dogs made it in from the BBQ.  I didn't get a closer picture but to the right of the picture was marshmallows on a skewer. The kids 'Roasted" them on Gage's Birthday present. keep reading to see his gifts
I sewed three bananas together to make a table runner

These are pics of pics but they really capture my thumb sucker's personality

His gun that started the whole cowboy party planning. Can you believe I got the chaps in a hand me down bag! talk about perfect timing and luck
Yes the teacher in me had to incorporate in a Cowboy sensory bin

And here is the gifts we made our little Cowpoke. I actually bought the tent from Etsy but had to make some revisions once I purchased it. We had to add holes to the front and back and attach a ribbon because the sent kept collapsing. I bought the pattern for the fire from here.  I'm embarrassed to say that we didn't get it completed in time for his party but it was still a hit. We just needed to attach the logs to the bottom of the fire.

And my Cowboy all tuckered out from a busy day of partying.
