Sterling’s 2nd Birthday Party

We celebrated Sterling’s Birthday this Saturday and had the best time. I am not one for planning themed parties so kept it simple and just decorated for a kids birthday. We had a painting station for the kids and a booze station for the parents- everyone was happy:) Here are a few pictures my sister snapped from the big day! It was so fun but I am glad it’s over, every year I forget how much time and effort it takes to put a party together! Most important thing though, the Birthday Boy really enjoyed himself!

And for those who are interested, My Outfit. This was before I decided what shoes I was wearing. I went with the right ones because they were more comfortable, always best when chasing kids around.

JCrew Blouse, Stella and Dot Clover Necklace, 7 for all Mankind “The Skinny” Jeans, Micheal Kors Shoes.

    Awesome party and I adore Sterling's Star glasses. And I love how you made some food yourself and then outsourced others for a time-saver (I saw that Chick fil A plate Girl!) Love the rainbow fruit skewers!
