naptime treat: clownin' around

we were lucky enough to attend a fantastical birthday bash on saturday.  it was such big fun to be guests, and i was beyond humbled my mama n's brilliant execution of the 3 ring details!

unfortch, i can't carry meredith nelson around in my back pocket.  i would love-love to have her in there, not only because she provides tons of smiles at all times, but because she captures every event a hundred million times better than i ever could.  so please forgive these very amateur shots but i just had to share some of the fun. . . 

joyfully greeted by the fabulous birthday gal, miss m!

 the awesome spread. . .

mmmm, sweet potato fries and hot pretzels.  delish!

mama not only baked and decorated the cake- she also whipped up the precious bunting about 15 minutes before the guests arrived . . .

the clown noses were a hit!

super-cool circus favor bags with giant lollis, circus stickers and tattoos. . . 
and the best CDS with miss m's fave tunes.
(and yes, i do keep finding myself jamming out to the this WITHOUT c & p in the car.  'free to be you and me'. . . swoon)

this cotton candy was legit!

mama n had about a bazillion other thoughtful details that i didn't capture.  
i was too busy devouring the ten different yummy barefoot contessa recipes and admiring the adorbs pom poms- all lovingly created by mom!  

we totes felt the love and no doubt the b-day gal did, too.  
lucky duck.  

and lucky us, getting to experience a real-life party with heart.
thanks, m & n.  
you rock.
