Putting together Alexa's party was super easy because I used of my favorite computer tools - Springpad and Scrapbook Max.
Springpad is like Pinterest with the exception that you can keep all of your information hidden and you can create your own list and notes.
Here is my board for Alexa's party. I was able to keep my decorating, favors and recipe ideas together and also create my menu, to do lists and shopping lists. Since I have Springpad on my phone, ipod touch and Nook, I was able to access my lists from anywhere.
Scrapbook Max was also my lifesaver this party. I was able to create all of my food table signs, the invitation and sign decorations. I used Walgreens photo to print everything because of the reasonable price.
For my food table: Each of these was cute in half and placed on a photo holder stand.
Each of these was printed as a 4 x 6 photo and placed in acrylic picture frame.
I had this printed in 8 x 10 and I used a white wooden picture frame. I placed it near the favor table for guests to read as they were getting ready to leave the party.
So there you have it, Alexa's 2nd Birthday! It's still crazy to think she is now 2. Since 2 came up so quick, I'm already thinking of party #3. Thank goodness for Springpad to keep my organized.
