Now Boarding B&L Airlines {Airplane Party}

Airplane Party Table

Calling all passengers, now boarding B&L Airlines.  One of my dear friends asked me to help her plan her twins 3rd birthday party.  Her boys love airplanes and the Dimpleprints Airplane party package was perfect for this sweet celebration.

Oink, Baa, Moo, Parker & Piper are 2!  Our sweet babies, just turned 2 and we had a barnyard bash to celebrate!  I have been planning this party for a few months and couldn't wait to celebrate but we had a few minor snags along the way.  This was going to be an outside party complete with a barn, horse coral and lots of hay, but the weather didn't cooperate and left everything soggy and wet so we had to have the party inside.     When I decided on the theme "Barnyard Bash" I knew I wanted it to … [Read more...]

I hung up an old white sheet in the backyard for our blank canvas.  I filled up spray bottles with tempera paint and added water to … [Read more...]
