I will say that usually I plan things in my head and then they never turn out just as I imagine and I am a little let down. This party was different. I was not let down. I loved it so much. It all looked great (in my opinion), the babies were so good, and we were surrounded by people we love. I thought about the theme a lot and had some ideas, but really did not get a chance to work on any of the details until Friday night and the party was on Sunday. So I packed it all in Friday and Saturday but I work best under pressure I guess. It was a wonderful day and I am so happy to be able to share some pictures and details from the day. I know they will not remember it and I might not either so I am glad I was able to enjoy the party enough to snap some cute pics along the way.
So without further ado...

Some of my favorite parts of the decorations.
|My sweet kiddos pre party!|
|The smash cakes and cupcakes. Love them so.|
|The only picture of the food table I got and it was before it was all done.|
|A quick shot of the drink station. Loved the straws and mason jars!|
|I just added this game board as part of the table scape. This was the game I picked up at Goodwill the day before. Major score.|
|I was surprised there was any lemonade or straws left before the party began thanks to this guy.|
|The only shot of all of us from the big day.|
|These boys found a quiet spot to enjoy their cupcakes.|
|They did such a good job opening and not getting lost in the sea of tissue paper.|
|Just a few of our loved ones who came to celebrate.|
|WE WANT CAKE! WE WANT CAKE!|
|Yes, they ate that much. They were not messing around.|
|The proud parents and our sweet ONE YEAR OLDS!|
It was an amazing day. I thought about it a lot, but I did not work too hard and thanks to my mom, dad and sister for coming a little early to help with the final touches. It was a great day celebrating the duo and a BIG thanks to all of our friends and family who came out to celebrate. Also, a special thanks to all of you who took time to wish my babes a happy birthday. Happy it was.
