So what's the deal behind a blue party theme for a girl named Violet? Well, Jeff and I were trying to decide for her what theme to go with, but we ran through all the options and just weren't feeling inspired. So...duh!...we asked the birthday girl what kind of party she wanted and she said "blue". So that's how it happened. Suddenly we were inspired and excited about planning. We asked everyone to wear blue, the menu included blue cheese sliders, wings with blue cheese dressing, salad with blueberries and blue cheese crumbles, and blue velvet cupcakes. Of course we served Blue Moon beer, blue Gatorade, capri Sun and blueberry soda. The kids played with blue rubber balls in the yard all day then took them home as party favors.
Violet has lots of cousins so I think we had about 40 people at our house. And did I mention it was raining.
Here's a rare shot of the party girl sitting still, i.e. refueling. She's soaking wet and so happy!
