Party Time

My little guy turns 3 this month (although he will tell you he is 10), and he wanted to have a costume party with our close friends and family. Months ago, Sean became enamored with Batman and Robin. So I started shopping around for themed items for his party. Then, a few weeks ago, we learned that the most awesome guy in the world, Robin, was a part of a superhero group called the Teen Titans. This is when the obsession started. Everything in this little boy's life is so much cooler now that the Teen Titans are involved. Of course, with my luck, these guys are the hardest to find in stores. Good old eBay was my magic ticket to finding the few gifts that I did, and being that Teen Titans are so rare and hard to find, some of the prices I have seen for action figures and such are unbelievably ridiculous! Needless to say, I scored a few decent deals and made my little man's heart jump for joy.

I still incorporated Batman into the mix with the decorations I had already purchased, and also made a few custom order requests for the big event. Has anyone heard of A Dozen Eggs cookies? Who out there loves sugar cookies? Oh my goodness ... these cookies are A.MAZE.ING!! I have seen random bloggers raving about this company, and thought I'd give them a try. I contacted Dave and discussed the birthday theme, and was so pleased at the awesome communication and enthusiasm for my request. The cookies all arrived safely, none broken, and tasted fresh and oh-so-yummy!! They were a huge hit with all our guests, and looked great displayed out on the tables. Check out A Dozen Eggs' blog to see how they went about making our cookies!
I also found a cute little shop on Etsy called Sweet Lollipop Shop that made me cotton candy flavored Batman lollipops! They were so cute, arrived safely as well, and the seller was very nice to work with. I highly recommend these two shops for your next event!!

The party was a hit, and we had so much fun celebrating!!
Happy Birthday, Little Man!!
