Gabby's Second Birthday: Pastel Garden Butterflies

Gabby turned two a month ago and I finally have a chance to share the pics. For my baby shower and Gabby's first birthday, we had 100 guests so I wanted to do something low-key and a lot smaller for her second birthday. Somehow we still ended up with 40 guests, tons of food and a lot of crafts. My cousin, Q, and I kept finding new crafting projects to do.

Maybe I'll post more details of what I did if anyone is interested.  If you would like any printables, leave me a comment or send me an email.

Get ready for a long post.

Overall, we had a fun afternoon with great friends and family. I'm not sure if Gabby really understood what a birthday is but she sure is enjoying all the new toys.
