A Toy Story Birthday Bash


Although it wasn't my original plan, we went with a Toy Story themed 2nd birthday bash for Sam.
If you've kept up with the blog over the last few months, you know that my little boy has developed an undying love for Buzz and Woody and the whole Toy Story gang. He goes bananas when he sees any character toy in the store and he begs to watch the movie about 97 times a day.

This year we had his party up at The Compound on Memorial Day.
I love doing parties at the Compound because my family is always excited to help with everything; Mom took care of putting together the perfect lunch menu, and Amanda and the girls did my cake; my brother-in-law Chris smoked 2 pork butts for us and my Dad and all the guys put together the new swingset, which I'll blog about later. I couldn't have done it without everyone's help. I basically sat around and licked the frosting bowl and watched everyone do my job. :)

Anyways, here are the pictures of the party:

First up, the cake.
I'm so thankful that my aunt and cousins love to bake and decorate cakes. I found this cake on Pinterest and knew it was exactly what I wanted. They recreated it flawlessly; it was a white cake mix with home made buttercream icing; the cow spots are marshmallow fondant which they made in the microwave and then dyed black using cake coloring. Like I said, I just watched. And licked the bowls.
They are super amazing.



Is that not the cutest cake you've ever seen? Yes it is.



Our party favors, courtesy of Target.
The bags were filled with Toy Story bubbles and stickers and green army men.
(Target party aisle, for those interested.)



The favor tags were a printable that I ordered from Etsy. The shop can be found here.
And our invitation (pictured at the top) was from another Etsy Shop called Pink Pickle Studios.



And as for the decor, well, we went all out.
Thankfully, Charlie had nearly every toy from the movie, so we used his toys as part of the decorations. Mom made the banner out of scrapbook paper, ribbon, and cricut lettering.
The photo was one I had blown up at Staples.


Mom used her Cricut to decorate this plate and we displayed some photos and his invitation as well.



Mom found these army men gummies on Etsy! How fun is that?




The only food I can take credit for are the alien cupcakes.
I copied some I saw on Pinterest; just used some leftover cake icing and dyed it the perfect alien green.
Then I used Almond Joy bites for the eyes and mouth and sour ribbons for the ears and the antennae.
(Oh, and for the pupils I used a Sharpie. So no one was allowed to eat the white eyeballs. Thank you.)


Here's the Sambo, ready for the fun to begin.
(Wendy made his Woody t-shirt!)


Our 'spread' included pork butt sliders with BBQ/white sauce, the most DELICIOUS baked beans I've ever tasted (recipe coming soon), slaw, chips, pretzels, and all-you-can-eat cake and ice cream.


Sam received lots of sweet gifts and enjoyed opening them.




And now we, too, have just about every toy from the movie (as well as PJ's, a beach towel, stuffed Woody, and a water bottle and snack bowl that are all Toy Story themed!) Ha!
Thanks, everyone! I think we're set!


Sam also loved having everyone sing to him and he clapped and wanted us to sing again.







All in all it was such a great day and we are so thankful for everyone who was able to come.
Another party down in the books!


He sleeps with his stuffed Woody every night (along with blankie and Henry, of course.)
Here's a short video of him kissing Woody. Bless.



I LOVE YOU, SWEET SAM... TO INFINITY AND BEYOND!
