Bubble Gum, Bubble Gum in a dish...

I can hardly believe that in only a few days my baby will be 8! How does that happen and where does the time go?? I LOVE a good theme party so of course I really into...I didn't go overboard at all. Okay well maybe I did...I can't help it!
Here are the details....and oh were they fun!!
  1. Goody Jars filled with gumballs!
  2. Party invites
  3. Hanging decor, great find from Hobby Lobby for super cheap!!
  4. Gumball machine sugar cookies (No I didn't make these!)
  5. Estimating Jar
  6. Terracotta pot gumball machines (The kids all got to make one of their own!)
  7. The cake
  8. Birthday girl blowing out her candles (Nevermind that mom bought the trick candles and that we almost started a fire! OOPS!!)
  9. Birthday banner
  10. Cupcake bites to fit the theme.

At the end of the day Emmah told me she loved it all!! Which made all my craziness the last day or so all the more worth it!
