this year's festivities were decidedly smaller than last year. just the grandparents, auntie and best pal, lyla – oh, and her parents, too. but i made invites nonetheless. it's still a party!

zinnias and marigolds from bonzo's flower garden.

homemade blueberry muffins – errrrr, birthday cake – made with freshly picked birthday berries.

Photobucket
mint and lemon from the garden – my new favorite.

¡sombreros y party favors!

  1. I am SO FREAKING EXCITED by this party theme. I mean I really love it! I want to copy it for my little guy's birthday, but --alas-- it might seem a little out of place in January.

    Where did you get the invitations and the coordinating Hola shirt?

    Also, I'd love to hear a review of those clementine crayons once you get the chance to take them for a spin.

  2. @ maren: thanks so much!!
    i made the invites myself... just quickies that i printed out at home on blank cardstock i had on hand.
    and, to my surprise, found the shirt *afterwards* at a local store... so, of course, i had to get it!
    it's by tea: http://www.teacollection.com/
