3rd Birthday: The Amazing Spider-Man Party


Nathaniel begged everyday for six months to have a Spider-Man party for his third birthday. For the first part of the year, I was planning a pirate party but I had to dismissed all those ideas when his obsession to Spider-Man just went out of this world. I wasn't very thrilled about hosting such a commercialized character so I did most of the party details on my own. It also helped that I was able to play with my early Christmas present: the Silhouette Cameo!

I want to give a shout out to my family for helping! They helped so much during their quick visit. And with that, I think the best decision I made about this party is hiring someone else to bake the cake. So far, I have made all of Nathaniel's birthday cakes but I knew I wanted something better than my cake skills can do. And since we had family visiting, I didn't want to spend the entire day stressing about the cake when I should be spending time with them. Not making the cake also allowed me to focus more on the party details. And in the end, all my guilt about not making the cake quickly went away as soon as I saw the amazing Spider-Man cake. Laura's Sweet Creations did an amazing job executing our vision!

It took me a while to share this because I am just very disappointed with how my photos turned out :( The lighting wasn't great in the room but I didn't want to waste more time trying to find the perfect settings when I should/wanted to spend time with the birthday boy and the guests. But I finally accepted that it's about the memories created and remembered not how they were captured. So just please, be gentle when critiquing my photos :)
