Kenley's 3rd Birthday Party!

Over the weekend my little baby turned 3! I don't know how it's possible but a celebration was in order. It worked out perfectly that my Gophers were playing a rival game against Iowa on Saturday and therefore a Goldy Gopher themed birthday party was born and Kenely could not have been more excited about it {we are training her well.}

As always I started with my friend Erin, who designed these PERFECT invitations! I don't think they could have set the tone for the party any better!


As with any toddler-aged birthday party, the desserts were of utmost importance. I made some little Nutter Butter referee cookies to match the theme but everyone thought they were minions. Ha! I also enlisted my super talented friend, Natalie, to make me some football cookies and the world's most amazing Goldy Gopher Birthday Cake! This cake was the talk of the party! Not only did it look incredible but it tasted incredible too. The only problem was getting past the idea of cutting into our mascot's head right before game time. 


We kept the menu pretty simple with "tailgate food" and did hot dogs and brats, chips and dip, cheese and crackers, bacon ranch pinwheels, deviled eggs and goldfish crackers and fruit snacks for the kids. 

As far as decor goes, you all know my first stop was The Corner Balloon Shoppe! What's a party without balloons??? And, they are the ONLY people I trust to do balloons for my parties. The Gopher goal post might just be my favorite balloon arrangement they've done for me! I kind of hope it lasts forever! 

Beyond the balloons, everything was pretty much just maroon and gold. I also got some mini footballs and whistles as favors for the kids which turned out to be a cute centerpiece on the table. 

It was a great party filled with family and friends {even though the Gophers lost}. My favorite part of the whole day was watching Kenley's sweet little face while everyone sang her Happy Birthday, she looked so proud. She was also so excited she blew out her candles before the song was over - which was hilarious. 


Another highlight was the final gift of the night. Kenley's Uncle Nate and Auntie Bob {my brother and SIL} gifted her with her very own fish. The kids were going bananas while we got "Fafta" {yes, Kenley named her fish, Fafta} all set up in his new home.  
Another great party is in the books and I can't believe it's over. I am so grateful so have such a wonderful group of people surrounding us who love our daughter so very much. I was exhausted after this party but also felt so very grateful and loved. Thanks to everyone who helped us celebrate!

Great decor!! Everything looks STUNNING! I know when my daughter turned 2, details are everything (well, at least to us moms), and yours were perfect. Great touch on everything, and the invitation was definitely unique! I have never seen another one like it! Happy 3rd birthday, precious baby girl! :)
