Grayden and Sadler's John Deere Birthday Party!

Monday, April 29, 2013

Since the boys' birthdays are only 3 weeks apart, we decided to do combined parties for them from now on. 
I'm glad Sadler had his 1st birthday party separate, but the shared party worked out great! It was a bit chaotic at times, but well worth not having to go through the 'trouble' of throwing another party 3 weeks later! 

Both boys are really into tractors (what boy isn't?!) and since the John Deere dealership is right down the road from us, and we pass by it everyday, they have developed a deep love for John Deere. 

Their party was Saturday, the day my Aunt passed away, so definitely a bittersweet day for us. The party was a nice distraction from our sadness, at least for a little while.

the invite:


the decor:







the food
I wanted 'farmer food' so we did KFC, cole slaw, baked beans, potato chips, and pickles and olives (which my boys love!)


the kid's table
 

the gifts






 The boys were gifted many wonderful new things! They are lucky, spoiled boys.
We got them a new quad, the one Gray got for his 2nd Christmas was definitely small for him, so he's excited to ride this 'new to them' quad, and Sadler is excited to have Gray's old one all to himself, at least for awhile ;)  I'm going to do my best to keep him away from it for as long as I can!
 The cupcakes:
so cute (from walmart), not as tasty as the ones my friend Angie makes, but I couldn't pass up the cute 'John Deere' kit they had in their bakery.

What an adorable birthday theme! My boys would also love a JD party and with their birthdays so close we may do that too :) I am glad you were with family the day your aunt passed. I pray she is celebrating with the angels in Heaven.

Such a cute party! We did John Deere last year for Maddox's birthday.

Adorable! We do our boys together too. It's fun and festive and frees up our summer (and everyone else's!)

Lots of great details.

With having two boys, born 24 months apart, we'll be embarking on our first joint party this fall. I'm so looking forward to it but nervous.

You did a great job!
