Megan and Caitlin’s Birthday Party

Megan and our friend Caitlin both have birthdays in April (3 days apart) so they always try to throw a party together because double birthday parties are really just more fun.  This year I offered to throw it at our house.  We were pretty casual, with hot dogs and hamburgers served as the main course, but I wanted to make things extra festive with lots of streamers, some birthday printables, balloons, and a dip-dyed tablecloth.  Corey and I also put bistro lights on our porch which we have decided should stay there permanently.  Despite being unseasonably chilly, the night was pretty fantastic.

The birthday girls.  Aren’t they such beauties?

A double birthday party deserves two cakes, obviously.  I made a strawberry frosting/vanilla cake concoction for Meg, and Caitlin’s husband Andrew got the exact same cake as the top tier of their wedding cake.  So sweet.  Side note – you might also remember these two from their wedding or as the spectacularly costumed Sirius and Dumbledore from our Harry Potter party.

I put some washi tape on the wine and champagne glasses so people could label their drinks with a Sharpie.  Will definitely be doing this again in the future – worked out fantastically.

Happy Birthday Meg and Caitlin!!  Oh, and I have some DIYs and printables coming throughout the week so be sure to check back in.

    Thanks so much for all your hard work to make our birthday party so special, Bean. You are the best little sister anyone could ask for!

  2. Kat Dawg

    I will also take a little credit (patting my own back), however, I will admit Colleen did most of the work; very beautiful decorations.

  3. Megan

    Of course, Kat. You worked very hard and I really appreciate it. You are the best brother in law anyone could ask for. 🙂

    Thanks for sharing; I always enjoy your “Two Delighted” posting. I finally got my computer working again so I can enjoy all the pictures and my computer visits with you all. Love from Aunt Jean

    Looks like a great time. Sometimes low key homemade birthdays are the best.

  6. Taylor

    A lovely time had by all!! I am obsessed with your new place, by the way.

  9. Katie Trepanier

    Thank you so much for inviting us to the party. It was hands-down the coolest house bday party I have ever been to! You guys really know how to throw birthday parties.

  10. Colleen

    Thanks so much everyone!! So glad you guys could come! P.S. Totally just noticed I was wearing different earrings to the party. Whoops.

    Everything about this party is absolutely perfect! And two cakes, the printables, the balloons…you outdo yourself every.single.time! And I cannot get over your backyard – those bistro lights! You must tell me where you found them. We are looking for some for our backyard too!

    Given that Corey told me all this planning was actually for JIMMY’s birthday, which unfortunately he couldn’t attend, I think it’s great that you were able to still get some use out of all your hard work. (Kidding — everything looks beautiful! And I’m in love with your backyard)
