curious george party

April 12, 2010

disclaimer: this party was thrown a week after my sister's wedding, when i had a newborn and a week before ella started kindergarden so...
this was not the prettiest party i've thrown, but it was one of the most fun!

(see disclaimer above and then go look at everything we made for the wedding!)

cupcake balloons

i set up play stations based on different curious george books around our yard:

i was thrilled to see the kids so excited to listen to the different stories!  they kept grabbing different adults to come and read to them.
