Our family polka dot party was such a fun time- Grace loved having her family celebrate together! Even though is was just the five of us I still wanted it to be special for Grace. I drew inspiration from an old Martha Stewart Kids (thanks Nina for making sure I knew about it) and an adorable dress that I purchased for Grace last year when it went on sale.
Here are some scenes from the evening...
Each of us wore adorable gumball necklaces! I made them after seeing them at One Charming Party.
Above the table we strung dots from the chandelier. They were just office supply labels stuck together on fishing wire! They were quite festive!
For dinner we ate polka dot rice, meatballs and dotted fruit.
After dinner, we played rounds of bingo. I printed out the boards and we used M&M's for markers. Since I already had the ping pong balls all I had to do was write numbers on them. Of course we also had to have prizes. I used bubble wrap as a bag and filled it with dot candy, rubber bouncy balls and more gumballs!
We also read the book, Dotty by Erica S. Perl. It's a sweet book about imaginary friends and staying true to yourself.
As always, Bryce and I made the cake. I made marshmallow fondant to make the bow. I'm already looking forward to getting Carey's painting!
At the end of the evening Grace opened some of her gifts from family. She chose to save a few until our morning panCAKE tradition celebration.
