The first thing I did was create an invitation. I couldn't find anything I liked online, so I crafted this on Photoshop.
Another craft I did was making Wesley a birthday banner. I bought several sheets of square scrapbook paper on sale, cut them into smaller squares and then cut out the letters to spell out "Happy Birthday Wesley!" I hot glued these squares to an orange ribbon and hung it up before the party. I imagine it will stay up until we move. :-)
t-shirt from Lollipop's Shirt Shop. It was a little big on Wesley, but it was absolutely perfect! He wore it for most of the party (until the cake!) and then wore it to school on Monday!

his high chair which happened to be spray painted a perfect color for the party. (Don't worry, we sealed the tray with Safecoat.)
