The Chicka Chicka Boom Boom Birthday Party

When planning the kids’ birthday party we wanted something that would represent what they were into right now.  Their two favorite books have been Rainbow Rob and Chicka Chicka Boom Boom.  Thinking that Chicka Chicka Boom Boom would be a lot easier to decorate, we went with it.  I don’t have the invitation on this computer but the invite said: 

A told B and B told C

Lindy and Will are Turning 3!!

Chicka Chicka Boom Boom

How’d it happen so soon?

If I say so myself, everything turned out so cute.  My mom and I made a coconut tree cake out of two different cakes and we took our first spin at decorating a cake with the star tip.  All in all it turned out well.  I had fun at the kids’ party, I sure hope the kids did!

Oh my goodness, I love, love, love this theme idea! My boys love that book and I never thought to make it a birthday theme! Too bad I've already decided on their birthday party for later this month, or I'd totally steal it.

Just popping by from Multiples and More :)
