Evie's 2nd Birthday Party!

Evie's 2nd birthday has come and gone.  We've had a really great last 2 weeks celebrating our little girl and seeing her so happy!  I wanted to share some pictures from her birthday party!  Since we hosted about 40 people at our house, I was busy running around being a hostess so I'm sad I wasn't able to capture even more pictures, but we were still able to capture some great shots from the day that I wanted to share! 

Because of Evie's love of the outdoors, we decided to have a garden/butterfly party.  My little lady is always stopping to smell flowers and always loves to point out butterflies when she sees them...so it seemed only fitting to incorprate that into her birthday!  

I kept the decor fairly simple with butterfly paper cutouts from Etsy, some glittery garland from Martha Stewart, some balloons and birthday banners, and plenty of flowers throughout the house.  While I'd love to have focused more on decor, my main concern was to make sure the kids had plenty of activities and that the adults were well-fed! ;)  

While Evie probably won't remember this birthday, hopefully she can look back at pictures one day and smile.  I'm very thankful for my amazing husband who helped me keep my sanity during the entire birthday pre-planning process and during the actual event.  Hosting an event for 40 people is enough to make anyone's head spin, but I especially needed the help at 28 weeks pregnant! :)  

 While everything was certainly not perfect, it was really very special for us to share her big day with so many of our closest family members.  Evie also seemed to have a wonderful day, full of smiles, so that's all I can ask for!  

Happy birthday again to my amazing little girl!!!

  1. Stopping by from the link up. What a beautiful party... I think your decorations are amazing! But agreed, it's better to have people fed and entertained. My daughter's 2nd birthday was yesterday so we had her party last weekend :-)
