Birthday Decorations (Because I Know You Care ALOT)

Fix came up with the snazzy theme to Rock's First Birthday Party -- "ROCK ON! ROCK'S ONE!" Or abbreviated: "Rock('s) On(e)!"
Of COURSE I made a cheeseball in the shape of the number one! Would you expect anything less?
The awesome rock-n-roll records I found at the party store.
I let the kids decorate their own table outside (this is a post-party shot).
I had a flash of genius (at around 2 am the night before the party when I was making the cupcakes), and came up with the idea tomake records out of black icing and life savers.
Although some of them look more like black flowers than records, I think they were a success.
And finally, the favors.... CDs with ROCK songs. They all had ROCK in the title. I can send you a playlist if you are interested.

I have to admit, I was a few bites into the cupcake before I realized it was a record and not a black flower. But that is just my slowness. They were GREAT! VERY Clever! You sound like me... up until 2am the night before. I hope you all got to sleep in the next day!

Oh how I love a themed party! N-I-C-E Work! I especially love the creativity striking at 2 AM. Isn't it always that way? Happy Birthday Rock!

Looks like a great time was had by all. Of course, you are crazy creative and did a fabulous job with the theme.

We gotta get our kiddos together for a play date soon. I'm getting a bit of cabin fever...I think Addie and I are off for a Target run when she wakes up.

How was the beach?!?
