First, she helped me conceptualize. Then, she created these invites. Let's just say....DROOL....when they hit my inbox. She got it; totally captured the feel of a) the party and b) Mary Larkin (a.k.a., Sissy). They are sweet, they are vintage and they incorporate my favorite color scheme: Tiffany blue and red. Have you heard me talk about this before? Perhaps here.
Anyway, she also helped me by taking her TWO kids to the grocery to pick up cupcakes and a special July Fourth platter. I mean, my THREE kids trumps her TWO, right?! Oy.
I did rally the troops for a trip to iParty where we got every July Fourth noisemaker, flag, streamer that we could find. And, of course, Silly Bandz for the pinata.
What July Fourth party would not be complete without watermelon? The menu was just that: watermelon and hot dogs. Yum-o.
My beautiful girl modeling her special outfit. A Three Sisterz original shirt and......a July Fourth tophat.
Ever the gracious host, here's the birthday girl waiting for her guests to arrive so she can show them exactly how to decorate a bike for the July Fourth.
Here is Vintage Pollyanna's babydoll showing off her decorating skills. How precious is she?
Vintage Pollyanna's boy leading the pack. He looks really serious, doesn't he? Like he is going to beat the pack.
My oldest in a Three Sisterz red, white, and blue original. She looks a little more casual, yes? Either that or super confident that she can ride all by herself sans training wheels.
And finally, the moment we've been waiting for: cupcakes.
Ta-Da. It was super fun. May have to repeat next year!
