T W O. Avery Rose turned 2 and I shared some of my favorite 10 pictures + videos of her life HERE on this Instagram post. Spoiler alert, there are lots of double chins featured there, haha. She spent her birthday visiting her daddy’s office, eating donuts, and watching her big siblings play soccer. She even scared the living daylights outta me with
protesting her nap by climbing out of her crib and walking right into my room. We’re so grateful for the cutest + loudest caboose there ever was! You can check out her 1st Birthday Cake Smash HERE. It was darling!
She picked out the theme for her family birthday party all by herself, lol. She LOVES Ba-by Shark Doo Doo… so much it hurts. Literally, loves it. She also loves Donuts, Mac & Cheese, and Candy. We wanted to include all of her favorites to celebrate her special day.
I ordered a blue ombre donut wall for the kids and yummy specialty donuts for the grown-ups from Detour Doughnuts. Not only were they beautiful, they were delish! We had the crowd-pleaser Creme Brulee, Blueberry Goat Cheese, Coconut Cream Pie, Rose Champagne, and some yummy macaroons. My personal favorite was the Blueberry Goat Cheese. I’m craving one SO much right now! If you drop in the shop, be sure to try the macaroons, they’re the best I’ve ever had!
We absolutely love the mac & cheese from Modern Market. I typically eat there a few times every month and have fallen in love with so much of their fresh food! Their ingredients are pure and simple, no antibiotics or artificial anything. We had them cater the dinner and it did not disappoint! We enjoyed the Farmer and Merida salad platters, Pulled Pork Bahn Mi and Basil Chicken toasted sandwich platters, Mac & Cheese, Grilled Veggies, and Garlic Mashed Potatoes. If you pop in the restaurant, they have a white truffle artichoke pizza that is. to. die. for.
I LOVE balloon garlands! And when I heard about BigA$$Balloons that comes to your location and blows up hundreds of balloons to create a gorgeous arrangement, I was sold! I’ve always hand-made all the decorations for all of my kiddos birthday parties and this year was not the year for that, haha. The team was so easy to work with and knew how to create the perfect balloon-scape to fit my space and theme. Doesn’t it look like an ocean wave?! I love how it turned out and it was the highlight of the party. Can you guess what “toys” my kids will be playing with this week?!
It’s no Baby Shark party without a few sharks swimming around! We ordered a few costumes from HalloweenCostumes.com and the kids LOVED them! We even had a special appearance from a real life Uncle Shark! It was fantastic! A bunch of my siblings live here in the area (I grew up in Plano, TX) and 1 of Aaron’s siblings live here. We absolutely love living near family. Avery is obsessed with her 2 cousins her age! I don’t think the kids know how lucky they are to have a ton of cousins their age living so close! We love them all and had so much fun playing games and watching them dance to Avery’s theme song… over and over again. We couldn’t have imagined a better way to celebrate the birthday girl!
