Ok ok, I know its been awhile since I posted. Life has been a little crazy! So after having L, we also bought our first house and then moved- all when he was 2 weeks old!! Craziness. Chaos. But wonderful! So life is slowly getting back to normal and we are slowly get back to a routine. We have loved having the grandparents come visit and we are enjoying summertime- swimming, swimming lessons, friends, and naps. :)
Another fun part of the summer- my hubby's birthday! So a couple months ago, I thought it'd be fun to throw a birthday bash for him. I got all excited and started searching for fun golf themed ideas. (he loves golf!) But then L was born, we moved, and I was just very tired from these 2 kiddos. So we did cake with his parents when they were here and I was going to call it good at that. But then on Sunday, I started thinking about it and I thought, Oh, well, we'll invite a few friends over just for cookies or something. And then it went from that to this- a pulled together in 1 day golf PAR-TEE...
(So I wanted to do some fun decorations but having to clean, grocery shop, set up the food, make it all, and feed a 2 yr old and newborn- it just didn't happen! Oh and most of the ideas came from here. Super cute stuff!)
the spread of treats:
simple decorations... just used what I could find in his golf bag :)
super fun cupcakes! idea from here.
I love that there are 18 holes and a few sand traps...
oh my. These cake balls are my favorite! The recipe is from my friend and she has made them for me a few times and I knew that I had to make some for the party!! Check out the recipe here. Oh.my.delish!
And I loved this water! I wanted some water to have available with the pop but didn't want just plain water. So I remembered seeing this post and knew that I had to try it. I loved it! It was a nice hint of flavor without being too strong.
And there you have it! Now if he were a kid (and I'd had more time), it would have been fun to have some games and contests and such but instead, we had the homerun derby on and just enjoyed visiting with friends. Perfect evening!
