So before I throw myself into the bridal world for the next several months I wanted to share a piece of me, my son Hudson.


He is the joy of my life (along with my two step kids Trent and Andrea and my handsome husband). As a family we just celebrated Hudson turning 2. Now if you know me, you know I love throwing parties in my spare time. I told myself I was not going to go overboard with the details for his party but of course I couldn’t resist. Once his 1st birthday was over, I secretively started planning his 2nd birthday party…crazy I know! I wanted the theme to reflect him and our family of 5 and so it was easy, the theme had to be sports related.

I designed his invitation to be an admission ticket to his party. Adding some special touches that only our family and friends would know (i.e. the ticket number was his actual birth date).



Since both Trent and Andrea are amazing at the sports they play (everything besides “go fish”) I wanted to have each sport represented. So the cake was a basketball and soccer ball to highlight what sport we are doing at this moment. The amazing and yummy cake and cupcakes were made by Angela O’Rouke.


And the desserts would not be complete without sport cake pops made by Ashley Park, owner and creator of Wooden Spoon. I should have order several more because people loved them! Here I added football and baseball.




Now a party is not a party without some good food. I knew I wanted it to be a variety of ball park food and so what better than, hot dogs, nachos, soft salty pretzels and warm garlic fries!


I love the details, so here I made a mini concession stand filled with a few yummies.




And of course the birthday boy needed just the perfect outfit and so I made him his own sports shirt and hat.2NDBIRTHDAY-098


This day will be a moment in time that I will always cherish. It was touching as a mom to have our family and friends there loving on my sweet Hudson. Now onto his 3rd birthday celebration…I will try to contain myself.
