My sweet boy turned 3 (3!!!) over the weekend and the theme for his party this year was an absolute no-brainer: sports, sports, and more sports! Y'all? My little buddy loves any sport you throw at him: baseball (his favorite), golf (his other favorite), football, basketball, tennis, soccer. You name it, he loves it. He is quite the little athlete, our little Banks.
Because I am still recovering from a perfectly wonderful weekend of celebrating my favorite 3-year-old, full of family, friends, fun, and fantastic memories I will never forget, here is a photographic summary of the big 0-3 par-tay.
The food table
Empty vegetable can + cardstock = utensil holder
The beverage and favor table
Galvanized "B" tub for the bottled waters (don't worry...there were alcoholic beverages on hand for the grown ups)
Juice boxes + cardstock = easy sport drinks
Favors for the sweet little atheletes
The loot: Cracker Jacks (of course!), balls, and whistles
Up next to the plate, the food (get it? get it?):
Foods found at your standard concession stand (e.g., corn dogs, hot dogs, sliders, etc.). Yummy! And easy!
Every good sporting event has fresh popcorn...
...And roasted peanuts
Cake balls from the AH-MAZING Dough Mommas. Seriously. Order some today. Delicious!!! doughmommas.com
Homemade, Reese's Pieces basketball cake for the birthday boy!
Out-shining us all, the all-star himself (and his little sister):
Custom shirt, made by etsy seller Fly Duds. Personalized visor made by Momma
Athletic little sister, wearing top and skirt made by Momma
My sporty little loves
Could not be prouder to be this little boy's Momma
Our little family of fourFun for all, come on down!:
There was a mini ball pit for the littlest guests (Raleigh needed to try it out)
A new trampoline, courtesy of Aunt Jess, Aunt Whit, and their families
Every sporting activity imaginable
And a bounce house of course!
Rounding out the line-up, just a few of the family and friends who made the trip to the Mill to celebrate:
Cameron loves watching her older cousin play sports. Captivating.
Raleigh even had a few friends come to the party
Teamwork at its finest to install a little something special for the bday boy
Cousin Kristen got in on the action
Back porch relaxin'
The oh-so-proud Momma and Daddy
Closing things out with the face of a little boy who loved his gift from his Momma and Daddy...
His reaction to seeing his gift...
...A big boy basketball hoop!!
It's safe to say we had an absolutely wonderful, never-forget-it kind of day. It's also safe to say the guest of honor thoroughly enjoyed himself.
Good thing I have three months before the next (first!) birthday party arrives for our littlest family member. Celebrating the big 0-1 is always a doozy...
