Safari Birthday Party

Eli's Safari Birthday Party:

Our little buddy boy turned SIX this past April and he chose to have a Safari Themed Party! 
Celebrating you, Eli, is the easiest thing in the world! 

Eli had so much fun working on his party from concept to execution! 
He picked all the decor, the cake, made sure to have me find the perfect orangutang costume, made the lollipop holders, helped put together the backdrop + cake table, added all his stuffed animals + made sure we had a DJ so he could dance!! 
This was the first party I decided to embark on making our own balloon swag so me and my florist + bestie, Jenn, went for it and I think it turned out good! We have since made about 8 more! Such a great hack to save when throwing a party! 
On the morning of his party we were hit with a huge thunderstorm that made the whole sky black! We had to ditch the white tent, dance floor and outdoor seating and crammed in under the covered patio but Plan B was still so fun and the kids didn't know the difference! 
They had so much fun seeing all the animals, ate their weight in cotton candy and danced the morning away!! 

Eli Stack, 
You are the love of my life! 
You are kind, sweet, thoughtful, fun, and love to plan the details! 
You love to host a party as much as your mama! 
You are everything 1 mom could ever dream of in a son! 
I'll always be your number one fan! 
Can't wait to see how the Lord uses you!! 
One million cuddles,
