nate's 3rd birthday

When planning Nate’s 3rd birthday, I knew I wanted it to have a couple of handmade details and bright pops of color.  I opted for a palette of turquoise, green, yellow and gray (the names of these colors on the Paper Source site are peacock, clover, sunshine and gravel).  I crafted a couple of party elements—paper chains and flags with Nate’s first initial in washi tape.  Since Nate adores cookies, it was easy to decide on the theme: milk and cookies.  On the menu were a selection of delicious cookies and gorgeous “milk and cookie” fondant cupcakes made by the wonderful Candy Clay Cupcakes.  Happy birthday, Nate!  We are thankful for the blessing you are and your boundless energy and enthusiasm! :)
