Sweet T turned 4 years old this week and we celebrated with a Toy Story birthday party. It was actually a Woody and Jessie western party to be more specific. Buzz got left out of the festivities and plans to appear solo at Gus’ birthday instead.
Even though this was a celebration just for a few family members, I always order photo invitations so we have one to place in Sweet T’s baby book each year. Miss Bella Expressions on Etsy created this Jessie invitation for us.
Since we have family who work there, we were able to rent Gullion Farm for the festivities and the theme pretty much took care of itself with very little decorating on my part. Seriously, I tied up some balloons in the Smokehouse and called it done!
My mom ordered a beautiful cake from a bakery near her home.
I found a cowboy boot pinata at Hobby Lobby and used a 40% off coupon making the price less than $10. Filling it with leftover Halloween and Easter candy saved some money too…and Sweet T’s teeth. 🙂
Mom got pretty craft with her gift wrap. She found the wrapping paper at Party City.
It’s hard to find a lot of Toy Story items in stores right now. It seems like everything is Jake and the Neverland Pirates, Planes, and Ninja Turtles. I relied on Swap.com for most of Sweet T’s gifts and her Jessie shirt to wear for the party. Everything was in like new condition and Sweet T couldn’t have been happier with all her Toy Story items.
And little brother couldn’t have been happier with the pony rides!
Big thanks to my Aunt Katy for grilling up some grub for all of us and to my cousins for saddling up ponies and stringing up a pinata.
