Happy Hump Day!! Today I am going to spotlight a fabulous shop that I used for Gus' second birthday and talk about a few of the details of his party! I feel like I neglected Gus' second birthday party and didn't post any details on it. I feel so bad. Well I figured I would share a few details about his special day although it's a few months late (seriously, so embarrassing). 

I chose an Elmo theme, due to the fact that he was going through a huge elmo phase at the time. He still really likes Elmo but it isn't as intense as it used to be!

I don't know why my children don't like to smile for pictures

We had his birthday party at a great children's venue we have here in Miami called Cool-De-Sac, which is targeted more towards younger children. The activities they have is targeted more towards the fine motor skills rather than just jumping around inside moonwalks. They have a Lego area, craft/painting area, dress up area, computer station, video games, a large maze and of course a baby area for little ones under two. They also have an  interactive floor that lights up and the kids LOVED it!!

(Yes, that is my husband in the background with a beer in his hand at a children's birthday party. This place has a cute gourmet cafe and they sell beer and wine for the adults ;)

The birthday boy had a blast! He enjoyed every minute of his birthday party! 

The venue took care of the food, beverages but of course, I chose to bring some Elmo themed decor, cake and party favors. The banner I ordered from BOM BOM Party Shop on Etsy, along with the favor tags. They were PDF files and I just went to Kinko's and printed them off. I cut the banner out and put it together with matching grosgrain ribbon.

As party favors I gave out Elmo goody bags which I made and attached the favor tag to the back. And I gave out Sesame Street coloring books with Sesame Street crayons! Little Gus loves to color, so I thought it was appropriate :)

This is a blurry picture but this is what the goody bags looked like from the back
Seriously how cute are these favor tags? They were my favorite! I received the digital file for the printable almost instantly and the personalized name portion of the banner were sent over a couple days later! But still so quick! I was so pleased with the Ana's work...from the design to the customer service! 

That being said, Ana has agreed to giveaway a $25 Gift Certificate with a $30 dollar purchase to her shop, to one of my readers!! She has the cutest party printables for children...I love the baby princess collection! You can take a look at her adorable shop here
