And who would have ever thought I would be hosting a joint birthday party for my daughters?? I'm so glad I had two girls close in age and close in birthdays, it makes it so much fun!
We decided on a Doc McStuffins theme several months ago since it's Luna's absolute favorite TV show and she has almost every toy they make, and Belle seems to like the toys too! And after going back and forth on what to do for Belle's first birthday, I decided to combine their parties since we would have family in town (Grandpa and Sherry, Heather and Carolyn and Richard) and didn't want to ask them to come back a week later for another party. AND then we had to decide on where the heck to have a toddler AND baby friendly party, so we decided to go with an outdoor park theme at Caruth Park. SO glad we could reserve the picnic tables there too, makes it much easier to relax and not worry about fighting people for tables :)
And if anyone is interested, there is absolutely NO Doc McStuffins party goods sold anywhere. No plates, balloons, cups, favors, etc. So I basically had to order stuff off of Etsy, and had a major problem the night before when our cupcake toppers didn't come in the mail on time, so we were up late making our own from a downloaded PDF file, so not fun, and I hope to look back on it one day and laugh :) But everything else turned out great! Thanks to family for helping set up and for our Chick Fil A family,Heather, Carolyn and Richard for picking up the goodies!
The weather was perfect (minus some major wind blowing the balloons) and the girls had a great time!! We also hired a face painter and balloon girl who was awesome!! She had done some face painting for my CPS group last Fall and I was blown away by her work, and was so glad she was available for our party- I highly recommend her! If anyone needs her info, msg me.
Thanks to everyone that came to their party and our family that came from out of town, we had such a great day!! We had cute doctor bags favors for Luna's friends and the pink bucket was full of 'kisses for your boo boos' for Belle's friends :)
