Party Recap

My little guy loves putting on his rainboots after a rainshower and splashing in the puddles so it only seemed fitting since his birthday is in April that I do a fun "April Showers" birthday party for him! :) We just had moved back to the midwest after living in Arizona for 10 years so I was excited to have so many of our family members present for Cam's 2nd birthday. I had a fun little slogan that I put on the invite too... "Oh my Galosh, Cameron is turning 2!" :) It was such a fun and special day and as always everything came together in the nick of time! :)


Party Highlights

  • Best Moment

    Seeing all of our family and friends that came out to celebrate Cam's birthday

  • Funniest Moment

    Our little guy is such an entertainer...he dressed up in his Chef's outfit he received as as a gift and was being all goofy and silly cute!

  • Most Touching Moment

    Cam giving everyone so much love...hugs and kisses all around! :)

  • Desserts

    Cake, cookies, and cupcakes

  • Party Favors

    An umbrella cookie cutter with a cute little container of playdoh - a "rainy day activity" favor

  • Activities / Games

    The little ones played outside..beautiful day! I had a fun little craft...especially cute if it would have been raining but we had lots of sunshine. Drop food coloring on cardstock and then take it out in the rain to create a colorful collage. Since it wasn't raining I had a litte spray water bottle the kids used. :)

  • What People Ate

    Cloud shaped grilled cheese and tomato soup shooters, pasta salad, chips, fruit, veggies and dip, babybel cheese umbrellas

  • What People Drank

    Izze soda, water, and "April Rain" drink for the adults

  • Best Dressed

    Goes to my brother again...he was a good sport and made us all laugh wearing a big yellow rain slicker! :)

  • Rain cloud mobiles

    My Aunt Michelle made the rain cloud mobiles that hung above the dessert table...she did such an amazing job..they were the perfect touch to the party. They are now hanging in Cam's playroom! :)

  • "A Rainbow of my Own" book

    I love having a special keepsake for each of Cam's parties. For his April Showers party, I had a book called "A rainbow of my own" out for eveyrone to sign and write a special message. Not only is the book adorable but he can read all the special messages of everyone that was at his party for years to come. :)

    Thank you Canaan! Are you referring to the sign in between the boots and balloons? If so I actually added this to the picture through pic monkey. :)
