Joseph's 5th Birthday Party

I took some days off from blogging, but I am back with some pictures from my son's 5th birthday party. It was a picnic and Bakugan's theme celebration. We had games, prizes, picnic food, snow cones and lot of fun. We welcomed the guest through a ticket booth where they redeemed the entrance ticket (invitation). The received a t-shirt with the birthday logo and tickets to play games and win prizes (little toys, necklaces, instruments, etc). Joseph had a great time with friends and his grandparents from Mexico. Special thanks to Andrea Melo for the great pictures.

Napkins from Ikea

I buy and buy napkins from Ikea. I love the different colors, patterns and sizes. Their texture is soft, but at the same time is strong. It has two sheets that let you play with them for different projects. They come in packages of 30 or 50 for $1.99-2.49 for more info visit Ikea.

I wrapped the gifts with some of them.

I set the table like this for today's breakfast. It is Joseph's birthday!

Happy Easter

I decided not to do much about Easter projects this year. I have been busy and I feel my kids have done plenty at school. They brought so many beautiful bunnies, crafts, eggs, baskets and candies from their Easter parties. We still hunting for eggs and they will have a Easter treat. Visiting my favorite websites, I found what it has to be one of my favorite Easter crafts, a tiny basket of Paper Napkin Decoupage eggs. Absolutely Gorgeous!

Real Festa. Bakugan's Party on the planning.

I started to put Joseph's birthday ideas in paper. I am choosing red, navy and pool blue for the colors and I promised him I won't forget to have his Bakugans in mind. I am planning on having an outdoor celebration in our backyard. Hopefully, the weather will stay this way to keep the plan going. I would like to focus this time in the fun. I am having a bunch of 5 year olds I have to entertain. I want games, prizes, stations and fun food. I haven't decided details, but I will post details when time comes. I want Joseph to have the best time of his life.
