Max's Plane Party

On Saturday we celebrated Max's 2nd birthday with a plane party. The whole event went of without a hitch and Max had a really good time. I was really impressed that with a bunch of toddlers we didn't have one tantrum. A miracle!

I think the favourite activity for the babies was just sitting around and playing with toys and the favourite for the adults was the desert buffet.

My Birthday Boy

For games we played pass the parcel and Sean also brought out his guitar for a musuc session with the kiddos. My Mum took photos of both but I haven't got the photos off her yet.

It really was a great day. I can't wait for next year!


  1. it looks beautiful tamsyn. i am really loving those milk bottles!

  2. It does look all too beautiful! Makes all my previous parties look shameful. :P Monet went to a party for a girl across the road a couple of weeks back. Her Birthday looked very similar to the one you threw Max, bar it being a pink and green theme for a nine year old. Very inspirational.

  3. Owh wow!! I was beat after Brian's party and it didn't look anything like that!! I really love how your window worked with the afternoon tea table and the little clouds and planes. And the sewn clouds with m&m's - beyond cute. The last photo is precious too. Happy Birthday Max!

    Glad you are ok. Hopefully I didn't panic anyone.

  4. Wow! You did an incredible job!!! I love it all. I will bookmark for about a year and a half from now ;) I love how the theme is the whole way throughout. Great job. =)

  5. Happy Birthday to Max. I love your plane theme - very clever :)
