{real parties} "Big Dig" 3rd Birthday Party

While I'm working on my "2010 highlights" post (for Monday)

I'm really DIGGIN' some photos sent in to me yesterday and wanted to share them with you...
especially with any of you who have adorable little boys in your life.
These could've easily been included in my "happy" post from yesterday...
they definitely put a smile on my face!!

Party Girl: Marci
Celebration Type: 3rd Birthday Party
Theme: "Big Dig" Construction party
Color Palette: Yellow, Black, Orange & Brown


Marci created this adorable birthday cake
using bits of inspiration she found all over the web...

Along with the toy construction vehicles, Marci used candy corn "construction cones", oreo "asphalt",
licorice lanes and a brown sugar "dirt mound" to add the perfect details to this construction themed cake.
(Party Tip: You could also substitute the brown sugar with crushed vanilla creme sandwich cookies)

added the perfect personalization to the construction hats worn by the birthday boy and other guests...

What's a "Big Dig" birthday party without "Dirt Cups"...

"CAUTION tape" used as party decor gives the party an authentic "construction site-vibe".

Isn't he just so adorable!! This photo completely warms my heart
and screams "I'm a VERY happy birthday boy"!!
(and that shirt he has on couldn't be more fitting for his party)!!

Thanks for sending in the photos Marci!!
I love how everything turned out...
I've got a house full of girls so the photos were a nice change of scenery around here!!

Wishing everyone a safe New Year's Eve....
I sincerely appreciate the support and reaching out you've extended throughout 2010.
So much has happened and I'm thrilled you've been along for the ride.
There are many exciting things on the horizon for Pen N' Paperflowers...
I look forward to sharing them with you in 2011...

Hugs to each and every one of you...Happy New Year!!

KEEPING IT REAL
The karaoke night New Year's Eve gathering I was considering with a few friends?
Turns out it's just going to be a quiet night at home.
And I'm okay with that.

Even still...
I can't resist considering making some of these....

ADORABLE midnight snack bags

OMG, those are some of the best dirt cups I have seen... I'll take one for breakfast (;

And we are just chillin' at home tonight too... but I got a sewing machine for Christmas and making some of those Midnight Snack bags might be the perfect first project! Happy New Year!
