D Turns Four!

In June our little D turned four.. 4! We can hardly believe it.. I was really excited to plan his fourth birthday.. we didn't have parties for the last two and this was the first year he actually understood the concept of a birthday.. his birthday. A few months before the big event I presented him with theme ideas courtesy of my Pinterest Birthday Board. His pick.. an Alphabet Themed Party. I was not particularly surprised... the kid has 26 imaginary friends.. can you guess who?

And so the planning began.. The Invite.


The Party Favors: i found these adorable personalized alphabet coloring books.. tied them with a string, attached a bag of candy and finished them off with a balloon at the end. [lessons learned] don't buy personalized favors, even after RSVPing people decide to not show up and now I have coloring books with other kids names on them. Balloon, long string and a super windy day equal a jumbled mess of favors we had to untangle and untie!


The Plan was an alphabet scavenger hunt.. I bought a few sets of foam letters and set up a sand station, ball pit and water station and hid the alphabets.


The Cake, I bought a chocolate cake with white butter cream frosting from Wegmans and to all those who say nay to a grocery store bought cake.. I was one of you and then I discovered Wegmans and their not too sickly sweet perfect cakes. And I bought a set of sugar alphabets so D could do the decorating himself.


The Party.

What fun! It looks like a great party. The teacher in my loves that he picked the alphabet party. Wonderful!!!
I had to laugh at your Wegman's comment. We don't have them here, and I have two California friends who have moved East and are now enjoying Wegmans. That's all I hear about anymore. Wegmans this and Wegmans that. It sounds like Disneyland for adults!?!?! :)

Such a great party! Is this in your backyard? I love summer birthdays because you get to have the parities outside. Unfortunately, my kids were born in March and November.

Happy birthday to your big 4 year old!
