In late June we had a small third birthday for sweet Noelle! She’s our typical reserved child, but this year Noellie surprised us by wanting a birthday party–which she loved! Her favorite thing lately has been cupcakes (her great-grandparents had given her a set of cupcake pajamas this past Christmas; she is a little obsessed with them and now cupcakes…) so we have a simple ‘decorate-your-own-cupcake’ party!
We had her party the same week we put our house up for sale — so no fun pompom, streamers, or bunting on the ceiling! I was a little sad. In fact, because we were so busy ‘staging’ the house & decluttering and cleaning, we kept the party pretty simple! It really worked that it was a cupcake decorating party–it saved me so much time! Ha!
This party is a little more colorful than the typical soft, neutral color palettes I am drawn to! The paper used for the pinwheels & name banner was from an on-sale October Afternoon collection called Woodland Park. Pretty cute!
Rust even made fun of me because I added leftover paper to the store-bought icing containers! : )
For a game (which the girls played before the party, but we didn’t really during), we had a simple beanbag toss into a ‘cupcake oven’ — which Anna helped me paint. : )
And two sweet pictures of my birthday girl!!
