I hosted a birthday brunch for Charlie today. He doesn't officially turn two until next week, but this was our chance to celebrate. I didn't do a whole lot of decorating, but I did make a garland of cut outs depicting Charlie's smiley face. It was a silly and fun way to celebrate his joyful personality and his many recent physical developments. We had a big group of friends with kids of all ages. So we served a light brunch, made paper bag pirate puppets, played dress-up and munched on red velvet cake balls. It was awesome. The best part about hosting the party is left over champagne from the mimosas. How doesn't love a boozy mommy post-party?
Here are some photos from the day!
Here are the pirate puppets we made with the kids.
I guess these two pirate dudes are French and Italian judging from their color scheme.
And the (almost) birthday boy!
