party planning kicked into high gear...

so i have been super on & off about doing a party for my kids birthdays this year or taking a trip. since both of there birthdays split Christmas i thought maybe we should do parties on even years & trips on odd years. i know that you are probably thinking... "just scale down & do both." & i know that is the logical answer, but that is just not my style. i hope that one day i will be able to let go & scale back, but for now this is the way i am & i will just embrace it:)
anyhoo- the whole theme for Avi's party came a few months back when i got her this shirt that she became so obsessed with she wanted to wear it day & night. it's no secret that she has a sweet tooth (& that is an exaggerated understatement!!!!) this child wakes up wanting sugar & goes to bed still asking for treats! so it was only appropriate that i buy her this "candy makes me happy" shirt.
i had seen a lot of candy themed parties over the last few years & i just wanted something a little different. still cute & fun & playful, but just different. so i was really excited when we found the shirt & had a very TRUE theme for avi's 3rd birthday. now for all of the work that goes into throwing the party, planning activities, the cake, the favors & all that fun stuff. i'll post the lollipop invites soon. stay tuned!

Hi Britnee!
So, I'm having a flashback from girls camp when I won a contest to guess how many candies were in a HUGE jar, and throughout highschool, when we'd see each other, you'd scream "Cari can I have some candy?!?" Do you remember that? :)
Haha, just made me laugh a bit!
You really are so cute, and your parties are adorable! I've done a lollipop/candy themed party, and helped with so many candy buffets for weddings that I can't even count! If you want any help or borrow any supplies, let me know, I'd be happy to hear from you!
