LG recently turned 7...how did she get so old?!? Her dad and I have sorta set a precedent of always having a birthday party which I have always loved. While we were married we always made a big deal out of each others birthdays so why would LG be an exception? This year, money was really tight and so I tried really hard to plan a party that wasn't going to break the bank.
Auntie Robyn suggested a "Teddy Bear Tea Party." LG loved the idea and so did I!
I will admit that a lot of my ideas came from Pinterest. If you aren't on there, you should be. Let me rephrase that....if you want one more thing to be obsessed about you should be there. If you want to see all the photos from the party, you can find them here.
The best part of the party, in my opinion, was the thank you cards LG and created. I knew that all the girls were going to be dressed up in fancy clothes and I know that they love to have pictures so I decided to take a photo of LG with each of her friends to send in a thank you card. You can do this for really cheap by just printed out a photo to put inside each card, we did it a little differently though. I had a lot of credits at Tiny Prints towards greeting card so we turned the photos into cards.
Here is an example of our finished product:
Once they were printed, I had them sent to us first. LG signed her name and did some drawings, etc. I really loved this idea because no only did the girls that got the cards LOVE them but now LG has a book of photos of all her friends which she loves to look at.
