Angry Birds Partay...for a boy who's 5yrs!

Five is such a milestone to this momma. 5yrs! It seems like a turning point for all kiddos....maybe because of upcoming kindergarten, babyhood is truly gone and all that jazz.

To celebrate we hosted his first big friend party, after cancelling the first date due to Strep, which was Angry Bird themed as this little man is ob-sessed with the Birds. Seriously obsessed.

First, there was the cake. Which turned out pretty cute (and I completely cheated on). It was filled with sugar, made from a mix, the frosting was prebought in a giant pail and colored by me, the decorations are an actual game, and .....the kids LOVED it.

Next, came the decorations. Simple and fun.

Giant Angry Birds poster, free handed by my favorite husband....for the Pin the Beak on the Bird game.

Stuffy Angry Bird collection decorates the mantle.

Balloons....lots of balloons.

Simple, busy, Birds mantle, including the Happy Birdsday banner handdrawn by 6yr old W.

Pigs, pigs, galore!

Miss Julie, our talented balloon artist.

Angry Bird brothers. Aren't' they hilarious? Mr. Super Happy & Mr. Not.
The whole fam wore Angry Birds tshirts. (Thank you is good for something...I try not to envision the Angry Birds sweatshop that exists somewhere in the far east....)

The birthday gang

After playing Pin the Beak on the Bird, Pass the Pig (remember Hot Potato? now played with a stuffed pig to the Angry Bird music....seriously, we Birded out!)  balloon creations, eating cake, opening presents, many of which were Angry Bird themed somethings, loot bags were handed out, the two hours were up and it was time for Rs friends to go home.

 He was THRILLED by his first friend party and we were exhausted!  I'm so pleased that we could celebrate with our little Angry Bird guy and give him a special afternoon.
