It’s already time for me to start thinking about Dax’s 3rd birthday party. Time flies! You may remember how early I got started planning Dax’s Yo Gabba Gabba party months in advance last year. And you may once again think I’m nuts, but that’s ok too. I think that a part of me would love to be an event planner sometimes, I live for this stuff! I really like planning themed parties- I once helped throw a very successful 70’s party in college, and then of course my Alice in Wonderland wedding! Now that I have Dax, there’s no stopping me ;)
As of right now, our favorite idea for Dax’s Birthday/Halloween is The Wizard of Oz. We love the fact that there are some Halloween-y things about it: Scarecrows, Witches, Flying Monkeys, etc.. and I also love the idea of turning my backyard into Munchkinland! I’m imagining a yellow brick road running through my house to the backyard, hehe. Chris wants to head up the flying monkeys, and I’m still not sure if I’d want to be Dorothy, Glenda, or the Wicked Witch… Hmm.
I loved the idea even more when I saw this adorable tin man costume!!! The little boy in the costume even reminds me of Dax.
I’ve decided to bake my signature cupcakes this year (no large cake), since they were a hit last year and at the wedding. I found some really cute inspiration photos for the cupcakes, which one do you like best?

(I already have a similar cake plate from last year =)
And now for the decoration ideas!
(I happen to have a great balloon making friend, so hopefully he can make these!)
Now although I love most of these ideas, a lot of it is a bit too ‘girly’ for a boy’s party.
But I think that I can pull this off… what do you think? I already have some pretty awesome ideas for the invitations ;)
