Hudson loves the Wild Kratts.  If you aren’t familiar it is a PBS show about two brothers that morph into cartoon characters and go on creature adventures.  Over the last year or so Hudson has developed a love for animals and knows so many fun facts about them from the show.  So when it came time to plan his birthday party I knew the perfect theme for him…A Wild Kratts Party.

Our baby girl turned 5 last month…still so hard to believe.  Ella is an artist at heart.  She is constantly coloring and creating.  So, when it came time to plan her birthday party an art party was a no brainer.

When planning I started to pick up some painting supplies here and there but just became absolutely frozen at the thought of coming up with a design for the children to paint, how much paint I would need, etc.  Then I came across a genius company called Social Artworking.  You simply choose a design from their adult or junior paintings, tell them how many will be painting, and they send you the painting instructions, easels, canvases, paint, and paint brushes.  It was so simple!

Since the activity was taken care of I could focus on some of the fun party details.  I ordered aprons from Ebay and used my Cricut to cut the children’s names out of vinyl and apply them to each apron as a party favor.

My talented friend, Ally, loaned me the rainbow backdrop that she created out of leis for her daughter’s hot air balloon party.

A couple of weeks ago I threw a Christmas Favorite Things Party for my girlfriends.  It was a lot of fun!  I didn’t take many photos as I had hoped to.  So, these are a compilation of digital SLR, iPhone, and point & shoot photos.
