Little Bean Turns Two!

Thank you to all of our amazing family and friends who came out to share Layla's 2nd birthday with us this morning.  It could not have been a gloomier day weather wise, but we had a great time!

It was a major hustle to get everything ready for the party, but with the help of my husband and my mother, we managed to pull it all out.  Here are a few pics.  In case, it's not obvious, the theme was purple.  There will be tutorials to come for the dress, the banner, and the elephant favors.  Also, recipe to come for the pumpkin cake with cream cheese filling.

Purple birthday dress

Trying to get a pic of this girl is almost impossible!

At least you can mostly see the dress :)

Elephant favors

Added some beads and suckers to finish off the favors

 All in all, I think it was a great party.  Layla had a great time and got such wonderful presents.  Thank you to all who came.  And stay tuned...
