We celebrated Evan’s second birthday on Friday. His birthday meal? Cheese filled ravioli with homemade tomato sauce followed by cake and presents.
We hosted his birthday party on Saturday. A few weeks ago I shared my inspiration for his party, so you already know it was going to be all about race cars. He was tired by the time we had cake, needless to say we didn’t get too many smiling photos here.
The race car invitations gave our 5 little guests a hint of what was to come. We outfitted our dining room for the party. The race car invitations, happy birthday banner and other decorations from Gwynn Wasson Designs via etsy, was the perfect starting point for our race car theme. The 36’ red balloons and fancy straws from Brilliant Bash were also good finds. I made the ‘2’ sugar cookies, along with the chocolate covered rice crispy pops and chocolate covered marshmallows but, the hit of the party was the chocolate cake and the vanilla with buttercream frosting cupcakes! I ordered the cake from Monastery Bakery and the cupcakes from Call Me Cupcake – both were absolutely heavenly.
