Avalon’s Birthday Brunch

Our Avalon Elle is TWO, we had the absolute best time celebrating her sweet little self pretty much all of last week and I’m pretty sure she might just think that it’s “ber-day” now forever, she reminded me of just that last night.  On her birthday eve, she actually ended up getting sick (high fever and throwing up), which was so sad except that it gave me some last snuggles with her as a one-year old.  She woke up the next morning still not completely back to normal but feeling well enough to celebrate and still with a smile on her face, which is so very true to her.  We did our annual balloon wake-up (with pink balloons!) and gave her the pink tricycle and Elmo books Waverly had helped me pick out for her.  She was so sweet seeing her bike, she sat on it forever while eating a reese’s, pretty much her dream come true.

We are having a joint party for both girls in a few weeks, but I really wanted to do something special for just Avalon the week of her day. We decided on a brunch with chicken & waffles, Avalon is the pickiest eater ever but those are two of the things she loves the most!  I ended up working with a couple companies on a fun balloon and tissue garland, which added just the right amount of sparkle to her day.  Avalon loved having everyone there for her, but definitely followed Waverly’s lead in being super shy when it comes to the birthday song and didn’t really want to get that close to her cake until after everyone left.  She was so shy, super sweet and snuggly the whole day, we just loved being able to celebrate her!

We hope your day was as magical as you make every one of ours, sweet Avalon girl!!  We love to love you so much!

PS – The balloon and tissue garland are from Twigs & Twirls, they were both so easy to put together and made the perfect addition to her day.  We would definitely use them again for another event!  Avalon’s hat and the cake topper are from Hooray Everyday, we have worked with them for years and love their stuff so much!  Happy weekend!

    Sweet Avalon! I hate to hear she got sick the day before her birthday. You would never even know by these pictures. She looks so happy.

    Gosh what a sweet little thing! And horrible timing on the sickness. That shot of you two blowing out the candles is my absolute favorite!
