My kiddos turn 5!

So a couple weeks back my kiddos turned 5!  I'm still in shock maybe that's why this post is so delayed! Ha!  The years go by so quickly it's hard to believe that it's already been 5 whole years!  Birthdays are always a big deal around our house.  My kiddos talk about their birthday party plans throughout the whole year.  They repeatedly plan who is coming, what the cake is going to look like, what they are going to eat, etc.  Now being boy/girl twins it has been increasingly harder to coordinate their desired themes into one big party but we do our best.  I think they have never known anything different so it doesn't bother my son that half of the decorations are pink and frilly nor does it bother my daughter that there are car posters and flags plastered on the walls.  Sounds alittle chaotic now doesn't it, I guess sometimes it is.  This year my daughter wanted a hello kitty themed birthday and my son wanted a hot wheels themed birthday.  No problem, right?  Well we tried anyways!

Here is a picture of the invitation.  (Of course all our personal info has been removed)

The food table was a mixture of both of the themes, trying to use mostly black and white with a little pink and blue thrown in.  I bought these hello kitty cups and napkins,

 and these hot wheels cups and napkins
placed on a white tablecloth with a black runner (which had yellow taped lines down the middle to look like a road).  I drew hello kitty on white balloons and printed out a checkered banner to display across the table.  (Sorry for the bad photo!  The party had already started when I started to take pictures)

I also filled a vase with marshmallows and added a number 5 candle as a table decoration.  It was inspired by this pin 

I tried to keep most of the hello kitty decorations downstairs.  I drew and colored hello kitty posters, and made these giant tissue pompoms, as well as made our own hello kitty "pin the bow" game.  The kids colored their own bow and then we covered their eyes and they tried to stick the bow on!

Upstairs we had most of the hot wheels decorations.  I used this tablecloth as a poster on the wall.    

Printed this banner from Over the big moon

We also had our bouncy house set up as well as this homemade racetrack for the hotwheels cars.  We made this track 1 hour before the party started so it was a little "put together" but the kiddos didn't mind at all.

And the cakes!  Oh the cakes.  Now I am not a cake decorator but my kiddos insist on having elaborate personal cakes so here is what I came up with.

Hello kitty cake

This cake was for everyone else at the party.  It was inspired by this pin

The kiddos had a great time and made a lot of fun memories.  They are already starting to plan for next year! LOL!
