The Most Epic 4th Birthday Party Ever

Last October my little Ian turned 4. I was so wrapped up in this throwing this ‘Scout’ party for him, that I never got a chance to actually blog about it!  I’ve recently decided that the boys get an amazing party every other year to keep the levels of insanity down in the Woollen household.  I will say, that for this party I was lucky enough to have two talented partners in crime with me in pulling it off. My girlfriends Jillian & Kristina from 100layercakelet  gave me their Scout’s Honor that they were on board, and together we created a Moonrise Kingdom birthday party in our back yard.
We sent out wood invitations and had Courtney at Pine and Parcel print them up for us. You KNOW I had a blast gathering  up the vintage mint boyscout and nature stamps for the envelopes!   We set up bar for the parents to have some fall festive drinks while the little scouts earned their honorary merit badges with some special activities.  You must check out the games they played here!  Our friend Lauren from Walnut Animal Society made this little pennant flag just for Ian (which is now hanging in his room!) and I hunted down some old Scout badges from etsy that we turned into cupcake toppers and drink mixers.
As a final treat, (besides the cupcakes) our friend Eddie arrived and led the boys through some flag-folding and Scout parading adventures around the neighborhood.  Our friend Scott snapped all of these amazing pics and left us with bunch of fun Polaroids too.
The party was epic to say the least and the kids had a blast! There are waaay more pics on the 100 Layer Cakelet blog so if you want to see more, you can find them here!
