Letter "O" Birthday Party

Owen and his cousin Oliver are just 3 days apart so we celebrated their 3rd birthdays together in June with an "O" party! Alli and I love using for invitations. It's easy, free and we almost always get an rsvp from everyone. I changed the main image to a personal photo which was actually a .jpg of a scrapbook page I created special for the occasion.

We had so much fun being creative with the theme and tried to carry it through the party as much as possible. Our menu was all "O" shaped (round foods):
hamburgers (and hot dogs for the kiddos), wagon wheel pasta salad, tator tots, veggies, "O" jello jigglers.
for dessert was birthday cake, of course, and dippin dot ice cream!

The centerpieces were created around the lime green sixlet candies. When I saw them in the party aisle of super walmart and knew I had to find a way to use them!

I painted a terra cotta saucer navy blue and used a lime green paint pen to write "happy birthday owen" and "happy birthday oliver" around the rim. The collage was made in PSE with the letter "o" from crazy pooch font. I made two separate collages-- one for each side of the round lime green cardstock used as a border. The collage sticks right in the dish of candies for a fun centerpiece!

Alli made a train cake for Oliver and I made a racetrack cake for Owen. Alli and I both share a love of decorating cakes and it was so fun for each of us to make a cake that reflected the boys' personalities and interests!

And here are the birthday boys with their cakes. Thanks to Oliver's Grammy for the matching shirts!

Happy Birthday, Owen!
