I can't believe my little man is already 3 years old. What?! I remember feeling like he would never decide to come when I was 41wks pregnant and waddling around. Little did I know a 9lb 9oz baby BOY would arrive (after putting me through hell I may add, but that's for another day) and my world would never be the same! This little boy is a spitfire who knows how to push my buttons, but has the BIGGEST & sweetest heart! He says "hello my angel babyyyyy" when his brother wakes up in the morning and grabs our faces for hard kisses before bed! He is the best unanswered prayer and I am thankful every day for the son I never wanted, but could never live without!
We celebrated our THREEnager with a dino-themed bash that was totally ROAR-some! Had the BEST goodies from all our favorite small shops with BIG hearts!
Step 1: Get the BEST POSSIBLE INVITE from COCO STINE DESIGNS
! (yes that's our very own CS!) She dominated this invite and made it everything I wanted and more! She's the SHIZZZZZZZZ!
And then, how could I not order a life-size dinosaur cutout?! Amazon Prime for the win!!!
My mom & I created Aden's dinosaur cake with help from the birthday boy! Picked up the pan & decorating tips from Hobby Lobby & we piped it! Trust me it was surprisingly simple!!! Decorated with our ROAR cake topper from GLAMBANNERS
OBSESSED with our partying dinosaurs from MONKA GOODS
! Lauren is the BEST to work with and quite hilarious if you ask me! ;) Needed my BOY MAMA tank from AVENUE G
because ... well obviously it speaks for itself! And I'm always rocking jewelry from BRIN AND BELL! This long rectangle necklace can be found here
in lots of amazing colors!
It's all in the details! Jess from GLAMBANNERS
not only made our cake topper, but these adorable dino cupcake toppers AND our banner! Did I mention you MUST go get all your party goodness from her?! She nailed our theme!!!
I got the boys dinosaur hoodies from WOLFE & SCAMP
(and quickly ordered them for my husband and I ... you may see an appearance around Halloween!) Historically Aden's party has always had cooler (if not cold) weather, but of course Mother Nature proved me wrong this year! It was HOT to say the least! So only Coco was "cooperative" in showing off his hoodie! But again, you may see a dinosaur family come to your door for Halloween this year so there will be LOTS of Wolfe & Scamp dino goodness coming!
Speaking of family ... here is mine (minus our Kingston Rex furry baby)! Aden & Scott rocking their Mama Said Tees
tees of course and Coen's gnarly shredded pants from RUSTIC PICKLE
! <-- LOVE HER!
Black dinosaur banner & confetti from ENDEARING CREATIONS
! She's so sweet & makes CUSTOM (yes you heard me) CONFETTI for all your party goodness!
We stuffed our faces ...
and we ended the day with a TOTAL THREENAGER! Would not lift his head for a picture by the end of the day followed by a MAJOR sugar crash meltdown! Ahh the joys of motherhood! Hope you enjoyed our party details as much as we did! A HUGE thanks to the small shops who helped make his party amazing!
