Lion King Birthday Party

Happy Thanksgiving! Merry Christmas! Happy New Year! Have I missed any holidays? 😉 We spent Christmas in Minnesota and it was frigid, fun and relaxing. Saelor turned four on December 27th so we celebrated his birthday there. Here’s a few snapshots from his special day.

Lion King Birthday Party:

My sister-in-law made the Happy Birthday banner. Her calligraphy is much more impressive than mine. 😉

I made my favorite chocolate cupcakes and buttercream frosting. For the cupcake toppers, I used stickers from Hobby Lobby and attached them to toothpicks.


This was Saelor’s favorite part of the whole birthday. Grub that was “slimy, yet satisfying!”

For the Bug Juice I used green Kool-Aid and it kind of tasted like green apple Jolly Ranchers. (I think that was my boys first time trying Kool-Aid 😛 )

I bought a stamp set to make the signs. Tyler built the log holders last year for Saelor’s birthday.

I bought the cake from Nothing Bundt Cakes and it was so delicious. I spray painted the lion, but it didn’t turn out quite like I had imagined. 😉

I stained wood blocks and added jungle themed stickers from Hobby Lobby.

Hakuna Matata gift bags were a big hit for everyone.


Happy Birthday Saelor Ellis! Time has flown since you made us parents – thankful for everyday with you!

Thanks for stopping by,
