Yee Haw!



On Sunday, we finally had Hayden's birthday bash. It was cowboy themed and I went all out. (Whew!) Here are some pictures of the decor.



Our welcome sign to the party. I outlined the sign and Bailee filled in the cow spots.


Candy buffet


Close up of the banner that I made to go above the candy table.


I made the tablecloth and the garland hanging in front of it.


I made loot bags to hold everyone's candy.


This is a truck that Hayden has had since he was born. I filled it with bullseyes for the candy buffet. I also had snake eggs (whopper eggs), Hershey's gold nuggets, licorice lasso's, Cow Tales, cow patties (Reese's peanut butter cups), cowboy kisses (Hershey's kisses), prairie peanuts, Jolly Ranchers and miners mints.


AND.....

the crowning glory of the entire party!!!



The cowboy birthday cake!!



How amazing is that cake? I did it with the help of my BFF Laura. I could not have done it without her. Bailee was also a big help. She painted the number 2 that sat on top of the cake. It was a team effort, but it paid off. Hayden's cake was unbelievable!

Here's a close up of the belt buckle that Laura made. She piped the outline and his name by hand. No cutting corners here!


I'll do another post tomorrow and show pictures of the actual party. Come back and check it all out!
