It all looks so fabulous! I have a couple questions: do you own all those small chairs, or did you rent them (at the kids' tables)? And, where can one buy the huge balloons you had on the deck?


you are a rockstar mom!!


Wow! That looks like one fun birthday party.



i wish all the children of the world have a great mom like you

You rock! Makes my daughters very recent 2nd birthday party look rather jaded and a bit rubbish!! I really don't know where you find the time Jess! Still want that monster outfit btw!! Nic


Now this is the party of the year! Wow! ~Kelly

The idea of a REAL backhoe is BRILLIANT!!! And letting the kids drive? That is way cool.

Such a nice example, too, of how a handmade/DIY party is so much more meaningful, and so much BETTER, than a storebought one. You can't rent a real backhoe in one of those big-box party stores, and no party business in the whole phonebook would have a clause on their insurance policy permitting children to ride on real farm equipment. You did amazing.


this is awesome!! :) Gives me great ideas. Love the tractor.
