Hayden's Yellow Party

 We celebrated Hayden's big day this past Saturday with a fun yellow party. A few months ago, Hayden's favorite color was yellow and everything was yellow all the time. He has since moved on to red (or handsome red as he sometimes calls it) but we were sticking with the yellow theme for the party. After the craziness of last year's pancake bash, we decided to do a simpler party with less food prep, less decorations, and less people. It ended up being the perfect party for our little man.  
I picked up/made a few of his favorite foods for the occasion: hummus, cheese and crackers, and macaroni and cheese. Since the party was at 10 am, we didn't have to serve a full meal. Hayden and I baked his birthday cupcakes together and my sister helped frost them. 
 As for decorations, I bought a few packs of tissue paper and made a tassel garland, and fun dot garland. I also made a table runner out of wrapping paper. Yellow crepe paper and balloons finished off the easy decorations. 
We had a few kids at this party so I made some favor bags and stuffed them with fruit snacks, bubbles, play dough and sun glasses.
Hayden and his buddies enjoyed swinging outside, playing with blocks and coloring, and also enjoying some of his new toys.
It was such a fun day and I am so grateful to everyone for coming out to celebrate with us. Also a HUGE thank you to my sister, Emily who showed up early on Saturday morning (coffee in hand!) and helped pull together the last minute details of the party (plus she took all the pictures for the day!)
