Last week was a busy, busy week in the T household. Between preparing for our guests and getting things ready for the twin cousin's double b-day bash, I didn't have much time to do any of the things I actually wanted to do. Except for bake, and now that I've done far too much of that in the last five days, I think I may never pick up a muffin pan again.
Who am I kidding, I like sweets far too much to every really overdo it.
So this Fab Five Friday (six days late) will pay homage to the reasons it was such a phenomenal idea to throw a double birthday bash instead of one party for each girl!
No. 1: The help. Do you know how much easier it is to throw together a party in four hours with the help of your guideparents, parents and brothers and sisters? A LOT. Because we weren't trying to throw two different parties we had like six pairs of extra hands to help with the decorations, food and babysitting. So instead of having to wake up at 6 a.m. the morning of the party, we got to sleep in until 8!
No. 2: The food. The best part about the food for a DOUBLE birthday party? You need double the amount, which also means you'll have a lot of leftovers. Delicious leftovers to snack on for days after the party. And with all that extra help I mentioned above, making 120 cake balls, 48 cupcakes and four JUMBO-sized cupcakes doesn't seem nearly as daunting.
No. 3: The ease. No one has to miss out OR plan around each other. We didn't have to bother planning around each other so guests could come to both parties, instead we let everyone celebrate both girls under the same roof! Twice the fun and half the planning!
No. 4: The guests. I'm pretty sure more people ended up coming to our little shindig simply because they got to see two super cute babies dressed up and smash cake instead of just one. And while both Evee and Pearyn were super troopers for their big day, I think even if they had thrown temper tantrums every two minutes people were a little more understanding since it was twice the baby personalities to work around.
No. 5: The adorable factor. One little girl in a dress, plus balloons, plus smash cake equals serious cuteness. Multiply that by two and you're adorable factor goes into overdrive. Not to mention how fun it was to feed them the same smash cake, dress them up in the same smash cake outfit and then throw them in the tub together naked. Two bare baby butts? Too much cuteness to handle.
