Show and Tell Tuesday: Favorite Party I've Hosted

Linking up with Andrea today for Tuesday Show and Tell, todays show and tell is My Favorite Party That I've Hosted. I absolutely LOVE throwing parties. I love choosing the theme, then finding supplies, crafting everything, goodie bags, and the list goes on. If you're new here, Baby Fox was born on Christmas, yep on the actual day. After his First Birthday we decided that we would throw a half birthday, that way it's in the summer and we can take advantage of our pool. Heck that's the reason we bought a house with a pool right? But I think my favorite party to decorate for was his 2.5 construction themed birthday party. I've actually already blogged about it, but here is a quick recap:

I used my Cricut to make all of the signs. If you don't have one, you HAVE to get one, it's the best! I know they have newer models that can do more, but for now, the one I have is perfect!

I love telling people what they're eating with cute signs. I think it helps to fill out a table and make it look more complete.

Plus doing something fun with the plasticware is a must too.

Here's the close up, and random fact: This is my most pinned thing on Pinterest.

The goodie bags that everyone left with. Such a nice touch is to create these labels then buy those plastic bags from Michael's and put them all together, it looks like you bought them, but in reality, they're super simple and it packs a huge punch.

Bought some caution tape from Home Depot.

Drinks outside.

Birthday Zone tape bought from Amazon

I bought the stakes from Home Depot, super cheap, and just added some signs to them.

I decided since it was a half birthday I would make half of a birthday cake...

Everyone having fun and swimming. I really do love our backyard!
