eloise {fifth birthday party}

This past weekend Eloise turned FIVE and we threw her a party. When I asked her what party theme she wanted, she immediately said “Rainbows and Unicorns!” And it turns out, every other little girl’s birthday party we have gone to this year has had that same exact theme. Ha!

daphne {second birthday party!}

Just this past weekend we took the morning to celebrate our sweet Daphne turning TWO!

Unlike parties in the past, I purposefully kept this party (very) small.

Usually we end up with a house-full of people which is SO fun, but we often don’t get to see and actually chat with our guests. We also kept the food scene super low-key (a few snacks and cupcakes) which meant we all enjoyed the party!

Also, when did my girls get so grown-up?!
