Happy birthday Teaghan & Lucas!

With my kids' birthdays only a month apart, we decided to have a combined birthday party this year. We invited 20 of their little friends and together celebrated Teaghan's 4th birthday and Lucas' 2nd birthday.
The party was held at our church's beautiful outdoor kids area under a canopy of trees. I'm glad I managed to grab some photos before it started bucketing down with rain!
Our challenge this year was to keep everything under a very low budget, which meant a lot of shopping around in variety shops & ebay, and making most of the things ourselves... even if it meant twirling fairy floss at 4am in the morning!! I was happy with how it all turned out.

I couldn't resist these fairy princess cupcake toppers by Robert Gordon! Aren't they just gorgeous?
Heart cookiepops, veggie sticks with beetroot dip
Juice, jellies, and watermelon tiaras
Pink sugar coated popcorn and favour bags
Favour bags and pink fairy floss
A very happy birthday princess :o)

this subject matter. Through your personal articles, I’ve gone from just an amateur to a skilled in the region. It can be really a honor to your work. Thanks

Hey this post was just so cute. Teaghan & Lucas had an awesome time on their birthday. Keep sharing such photos here. Anyways dear, my little ones are also going to turn 4 in the next month. So we will host a superman themed party for them. Can you help in finding an inexpensive party venue NYC?
