Tomorrow is officially our blog’s 2nd birthday! This gives us a great opportunity to reflect. It is a time to look back on previous posts and relive the journey that our blog has taken over the past two years, the events we have thrown, and the projects we have engaged in. We are happy to say that as our brand grows, our expectations reach new heights, and we continue to add more and more readers we are consistently proud of the creativity that we are putting forth. For all of these reasons, our blog’s birthday has taken on a lot of meaning. In honor of this special event, this past weekend we threw a little birthday party at our monthly Craft Club meeting. Although this occasion is important to us, our theme was kept light and fun!

Lauren’s patio, with its cozy furniture and bright yellow accent pieces was the perfect location to host our pink flamingo themed birthday party. 
You can’t have a pink flamingo party without neon pink, plastic flamingos. We also added a pink tissue paper pom and some garland from our collection to the decor to make it festive.  
Pink flamingo straws were fun for sipping mojitos with a tropical sugar rim which were served on a faux grass place mat.  
Refreshing drinks were accompanied by frozen yogurt … so appropriate for a warm Summer day.  
“Fun” toppings (such as sliced strawberries and bananas, fresh blueberries, granola, sliced almonds, gummy bears, cut up Snickers bars, and hot pink sprinkles) were put out and enjoyed by all! Tami made these festive floral letters especially for this party by hot gluing silk flowers in shades of pink and yellow and their leaves to wooden letters.
After hanging out with the girls outside for a while, we crafted (of course!). We set out card supplies (seen on Monday’s post, Craft Club: Birthday Cards) to once again craft for a cause. In keeping with the party’s theme, our guests made birthday cards in bright colors and patterns to send to children in need.  
Even Ava was dressed in the party’s color scheme! 
Thank you to all of our readers for keeping us going and giving us feedback over the past two years! Keep reading! Keep letting us know what you like and providing feedback for us to grow from. Here’s to many more years of creating, coordinating, and collaborating. Happy Birthday to our beloved blog … Side by Side Design!
