Tuesday Trends: A Birthday and Lilly Pulitzer Tumblers

 You knew I couldn’t have W’s party without some pink and green to greet our guests.

W celebrated her second birthday on Saturday, with a bunch of her little friends.  Her actual birthday was on Friday.  Although there was no rain in sight, it was definitely a scorcher.  We had bubble machines and corn hole boards set up outside, but everyone stayed inside most of the party.  The toys were all inside anyway, so either way I’m guessing, that’s where the little ones would have played.  Her theme was ladybugs, and it was so cute.  Stayed tuned on Thirsty Thursday for my Ladybug Cocktail I created, for those over 21 to enjoy at the party.  For those under 21, we served pink lemonade with sliced limes.  Couldn’t resist.

W loved the extra attention, and even blew out her own two candles.  As she opened each present, she would say “ooooh” and “Happy Birthday to You.”  Actually, she has woken up every morning since then, saying the phrase, “Happy Birthday to You.”  No, I don’t think she’ll have a complex.  Haha.  I’m just waiting until her next friend’s birthday party, when she tries to steal her presents, thinking it’s still her birthday.  🙂

Scored these cute invites at Swoozie’s before they went out of business.

The happy birthday girl.

Notice E, slyly trying to get her taste of the cake.

Happy Birthday, Sweet W!  You’re growing up much too fast for your Mama.
All in all, it was a great party, just wish my little one would stay this young forever!


P.S. How cute are these Lilly Pulitzer tumblers that Lifeguard Press sent me?  They were a perfect addition to W’s birthday party.  The pattern is so preppy, and they’re actually quite sturdy.  They’re also dishwasher safe, so they should hopefully last me a long time.  And at only $14.95, no complaints here.

This was pre-party, before the food was plated.  Notice the tumblers on the table?  Too cute!

 This photo was taken post-party, so the charger was a bit of a mess at this point.  

I’m hoping to order some Lilly Pulitzer Party Poms for E’s birthday coming up in a couple of months.  They’re too cute!  I used them for W’s first birthday last year, and they were a hit!  If you’re interested in ordering from Lifeguard Press, they’re offering free shipping that I saw on Shopaholic in Alabama’s blog.  Just enter the code: SHOPBAMA.

Happy Shopping!

    Both girls looked so cute. Pink and green, too. Love the party hats. Think stealing a bit of cake is hilarious (That would be me!). 🙂

    You're so right about wanting to keep them young forever. If I could, I would do the same thing, too.

    Happy Belated, "W!"
