Here are some of the details:
The entry table
The party favors were either The Bernstein Bears Catch the Bus or Maisy Drives the Bus and a classic wooden bus toy. We have so many friends with two children, so that is why there were two book choices. The bags were also labeled with a bus name tag.
This is actually our giant clock. I just covered it with a peel and stick chalkboard for the party.
The food table. We just did "school lunch" food. Ham and cheese and peanut butter and jelly sandwiches with a cheese tray, a fruit tray, a veggie tray and chips.
My sister made this amazing bus pinata for us. After seeing how awesome it was, we decided against using it as a pinata and used it for decoration instead. Wills' new room is transportation themed, so this will be perfect in there!
"Happy 2nd Birthday Wills' pennant.
Vanilla Bean cupcakes.
Amazing cookies made by Cupcake Kisses.
Chocolate cake with mint buttercream frosting. The school bus on the cake is the same one that was in the party favors. They were made by Ann at Green Bean Toys.
What may be a birthday party tradition much to Charles' dismay, the balloons!
Charles and I made this over a few days. The hardest part was getting the giant box. Thankfully Larry at Metro Appliances was kind enough to actually return my phone call and give us a box.
Eating, playing, more eating and gifts!
We had a great time at the party and are so thankful for all the family and friends that were able to join us!
