I handmade the all of the invitations with one of my best friends, Elisa. She’s singlehandedly one of the most creative people I know and with her help we came up with some very cute invitations. Since the party was scheduled for the day before the Super Bowl, I decided to theme the party around that (and sports in general). We stayed up until midnight gluing, cutting, folding, etc., but had so much fun! Pictures are below.
The party had a great turn out. I sent out 20 invitations thinking we would get about 1/2 of those to actually show up considering all the big events of the weekend, but as the rsvp's were coming in, I realized I might have underestimated that number. The day of the party we had 52 people here!! It was raining, so we had to have it inside, and if you've been to our home, you know that that means we were very cozy! We served a full lunch of homemade mac and cheese with various side dishes. Kasen now has more toys than he can even think about being interested in, so Kai and I have considered hiding them and bringing one new toy out each week...not sure what we're going to do.
