William's 3rd Birthday!

 for almost a year william has been saying he wanted a "woody buzz" party when he turned 3.
 he loved mm's pony so much, i knew i wanted to have the pony come back for HIS special day. but after last time, i realized i needed something for the kids to do while they waited on a pony ride, so we got a toy story bouncy house!
 The party table...toy story was such a fun theme to decorate for because i love all the bright primary colors and the fun prints.

 also a lesson learned from mm's party...i had too much food! i threw away over a dozen little sandwiches and i can't remember what else, so this time the menu was: cake and ice cream, popcorn, toy story gummies and lemonade.

party favors:  toy story pez dispensers with etch a sketch tags...i found these as a free printable online!
 mm on the pony...guess who did not ride the pony...WILLIAM! he wouldn't get near it!! go figure.
william had lots of sweet friends from church and school... about 15 kids! he had a blast. and another lesson i learned...don't assume each party will be like the next! i think these kids would have eaten more if i'd had more. the jumping must make you hungry. :) but it was still fun, and the 3 and almost 3 year olds loved getting their own lemonade out of the drink dispenser.
thanks to everyone who came and made william's party so much fun.

I stumbled across your page from Pinterest. I really like the way you did the Toy Story streamers on the head table. Did you just attach different printed ribbons onto the green band? Where did you buy your ribbon? Thank you!

hi cynthia,
thanks! i hot glued all the ribbons onto the green ribbon, and i got all of it at hobby lobby. the cow print is actually fabric that i cut into strips and the ribbon that looks like woody's shirt is plain yellow grosgrain and i hot glued thin red ribbon to it to look like plaid. sounds time consuming but the whole thing only took about 30 minutes.

Hi Cynthia,
Thanks! I hot glued the ribbons onto the long green ribbon and I got all of them at Hobby Lobby. The cow print is fabric I cut into strips and the plaid that looks like Woody's shirt is actually plain yellow grosgrain and I hot glued thin red ribbon onto it to make it look like Woody's shirt. I don't sew, so all my projects are easy and involve hot glue :) the whole ribbon banner only took 20-30 minutes. Thanks for your comment! Was this picture on Pinterest?
