When I was planning the decorations for Davis' birthday dinner, there were two things I was sure about. The first was a hanging banner of Davis' face. The second was hanging number 8's everywhere.
It doesn't take much to make a birthday dinner festive and fun. Throw in some party hats and it is on.
The Silhouette made cutting out the numbers a breeze. Punch a few holes and run your string through it, and you have an personalized banner. Davis' faces are taped on the back to the string. I didn't want to put any holes in is head.
Tess was so excited for Davis' birthday she wanted to help set the table. She did a great job putting it all together. I think we have a little party planner in the making.
The hats, party blowers and coordinating wrapping paper were all found at Target. Actually, the hats and blowers were on clearance. I added the giant pom poms with some hot glue to jazz the hats up.
Davis thinks cake is tasteless. I'm not sure where he got that from. All my cakes are really tasty, but whatever. Davis requested chocolate donuts for his birthday dessert. Dunford chocolate cake donuts might just be the best donut in the cake donut class. (I'll have to research this a bit more.)
We had a few party goers gather for a snapshot during the festivites. Davis was so excited all day, we couldn't get him to take a serious photo.
Tess was insistant on putting the candles on the donuts. I didn't even think twice when some of the candles were really close to the paper flags. We ended up singing happy birthday really quickly so Davis could blow out the candles. All ended well.
Tonight is party two of birthday celebrating. Davis has a couple of cousins coming over for vidoe games and a sleep over. Again no cake, but there were be warm cookies and milk.
