{ella's doughnut party...

We celebrated Ella's second birthday this past Saturday morning with a doughnut theme. It was such a fun change of pace to have a morning birthday party!
The original idea came from this wonderful & inspiring website: lilblueboo & of course Pinterest.

The invite I created with the help of google & photoshop...

I enlarged the top of the invite to banner size at my local print center...

Bought a couple of pieces of poster board {35 cents each} and created doughnuts with paints that I already had in my stash.

I ordered 4 dozen doughnuts & 98 doughnut holes from our small town grocer {under $40}. It was less than ordering a cake like I used to do!

{doughnut seeds...hee...this one still makes me laugh...thank you pinterest!}

I ordered paper straws & take home sacks from this adorable etsy store: Hey YoYo...

My Grandpa's old lunch pail worked perfectly for holding the napkins, silverware & take home bags {for extra doughnuts}...

We displayed a few pics from Ella's 2 years pics....{view more HERE}...

and fruit...we had to be a little bit good...

All of the plates, napkins, silverware, etc that I didn't already have on hand at home I bought at either the dollar store or target. {All for around $35.}

Happy Birthday little bean!

Along with lots of other goodies, Ella received the refrigerator & washer/dryer set to match her kitchen set she got from Christmas. All from Kmart!
