Emily Jay's Birthday is tomorrow (Wednesday).  Last year we threw her a big 1st Birthday Bash with 150 of our extended family and friends.  In Hawaii, it's customary to throw HUGE first birthdays.

Our theme was SUPER MARIO...

my sister painted these games... BOWSER BEAN BAG TOSS:

and a little bit of PIPE FISHING (notice the cheep cheeps):

we also had a photo sticker booth...

and a guest appearance by MARIO and LUIGI!!

On the menu... HAWAIIAN FOOD:

(clockwise left to right: squid luau, ahi poke and lomi salmon, haupia cake and okinawan sweet potato, poi, kalua pig, and chicken long rice.) YUMMY. YUMMY.

This year we're going for a smaller party with family, and close friends.  The theme... YO GABBA GABBA.  I'm excited about this one.  I wanted to share some FABULOUS yo gabba finds I stumbled across while planning Em's party.  Although we aren't incorporating them, they are fantastic inspiration!

brobee pretzels from delightful chocolates

oreo cookie favors by favors galore n more

ticket invitations by fine line stationery

dj lance amigurumi by crafty is cool

printable balloon embellishments by ry creations

I will hopefully have lots of pictures to share from Em's YO GABBA party this weekend...including cute, and EASY d.i.y. cupcake toppers!
