Party Recap... Carson's 2nd "Land of Oz" Birthday!

Friday, June 26, 2015

It's funny how people look at me when I tell them The Wizard of Oz is Carson's favorite movie... I know, flying monkeys and scary witches could be enough to haunt most people, but she is mesmerized which is why I knew it was the PERFECT theme for her birthday... 
Hope you all love this little look-see into her special day... complete with more food than we could eat, cake that was OH SO tasty, friends and family jam packed into our home with tons of kids running around like crazy, and memories none of us are sure to ever forget! 
As always, a BIG shout-out and thanks to Beth Hart Designs. She continues to blow me away with her creativity and always bringing my party dreams to life! Enjoy friends ;)
 the rainbow cake... with funfetti icing and lollipop candles!
the world's most amazing pop up book... found on Amazon
the best champagne mimosa punch... see recipe here 
party favors for the kids were mini red pails with animal crackers that said "lions and tigers and bears oh my", glinda's bubbles, and rainbow lollipops with a thank you card for coming
follow the yellow brick road... but dont get a house dropped on you
 the favorite birthday gift by far... a Dorothy wig and a basket with Toto!! 
pinata time!!!
