Edison's Blue Ombré Party

Blue is Edison's favorite color so I planned a blue party for his third birthday. I got the idea from my sister who threw a purple party for her son since it is his favorite color. I didn't want to worry about getting all the same shade of blue so I decided it would be a blue ombré theme. That way things didn't have to match and I could say it was on purpose!

I spent way too much time on this cake but I am proud of it.

I made a matching game using the leftover paper scraps from the popcorn cones.

We did a prize walk and the kids got to pick a glow bracelet/necklace/whatever once their number was picked.

Each family got a book and a treat as a party favor.

Edison got this cool medical kit. He loves listening to the heartbeat of everything.

When I finally took down the poof balls the boys had a fabulous time.

Edison got a cute card from his Neil great-grandparents. It had money in it but he only cared about the dog with the soccer ball.
