*party sources*

i had the best time looking for items to use at Oliver's party. there are party stores around here but honestly they just didn't have what i was looking for so i ended up getting a lot of things online. i found some wonderful sources that i hope to use in the future and if i mentioned them...i would highly recommend them to you as well. :)

let me know if there isn't something mentioned that you'd like a source to.


swirly pops in blue: Oh Nuts!

container for swirly pops: Ikea

kraft paper filler for swirly pop container: Michaels

custom blue and green cake pops in 4 A-mazing flavors.

 she even delivered these the day of the party!):

blue berry baskets: Sweet Lulu

vending machine capsules in blue: Sweet Lulu 

jelly beans: Greenes Fine Foods


wooden bus, truck and (top of cake) car: Green Bean Toys

cake:
this was created locally...as yummy as it was...i was disappointed in how the decoration was created.  i actually was asked by many guests if i made it myself which i think i could have.
 i think that explains why i was annoyed with this specific baker. Oh well.

custom cake banner (will be used for other future birthdays!): Ready Go


#2 cookies in blue and green:
 (very sweet to work with and the cookies arrived two days before
the party so that they were nice and fresh!)

stripe cookie plate: Target


i created a display of pictures that showed the last two years of Oliver's life by printing out 4 x 6 photos and taping thread to the back of each picture. i then arranged them over the dining room aka: snack table in staggered heights. i loved this project and Oliver has loved looking at all the photos of himself. :)

36" balloons: Sweet Lulu

Kraft paper table cloth: Michaels

Tin Utensil/Napkin holder: Target

Striped Napkins: Target

blue and green recyclable plates: Party City

homemade using my sewing machine...but you can always purchase something like this on etsy.

happy birthday banner (was equally spaced at beginning of party):
homemade...another item if you are not crafty that can be purchased from etsy. this was my first banner. the letters as you can see...the wind pushed them around. ;)

canopy over our pergola (to provide shade for guests): Home Depot painting drop cloth
(looks like linen!)
