Red, White, and Blue Birthday!


Tripp's party was a great success! The kids had an absolute blast and the hot dogs and cake were yummy, that equals success in my book! Here are the pictures of the decor and fun:

Wreath made from pool noodle, gross grain ribbon, and paper firecrackers. Easy!

Political Signs were staked in our front yard to set  the patriotic theme.



Swim suits for the littles and the bigger kids got flip flops. They were all a steal!

Party favor flip flops with tulle hair bows clipped on.



Food Back Drop. Name done with fabric covered canvases. I think I will put these on his door  now that we are done with the party.

Patriotic lanters strung on the pergola with twine.

Red and blue lanterns served as centerpieces.

Food Table

Gourmet Hot Dogs! Sign made from a free printable that I tweaked and mounted it to foam board.


Hot Dog recipes. We had the Texican, the Bacon Bleu, and the All American.

The fixin's. I put the cheese in patriotic tin pails and then put the pails in a bowl of ice to keep the cheese from melting.




Patriotic Fruit Kabobs. They are inside a striped photo box with floral foam inside.

The Vegan Blondies! 

The big cake! It was Strawberry cake with cream cheese and strawberries between the layers.  Delish! My cake lady rocks, so let me know if you need her info!

Tripp's smash cake.



Blueberry Sparkler Punch with star ice cubes! Recipe is cranberry juice, strawberry sparkling water, and fresh blueberries. It was refreshing!

Tripps decorated high chair.
Special thanks to the grill master for grilling so many great hot dogs!!!

Cake Time!

He was a big fan! In fact, he dove in before we were finished singing!



Proof of the Fun!
We had hula hoops, a splash pad for the babies, kid pool with a the slide in it, and a slip'n'slide. The perfect formula for some happy kids!

Thanks to everyone who came and celebrated with us! Happy Birthday T, I can't to plan your "Red, White, and TWO" party!
