How to Turn Three Years Old {Giveaway}

(This giveaway is now closed. Please stay tuned for the winner).

1. Get your hair did by your cousin:


2. Wear your birthday number on your shirt if you haven't yet mastered holding up THREE fingers (this works unless your over 20, then you keep that number very quiet)


3. Hang a very pretty birthday banner, lay out a matching tablecloth (courtesy of Two Sisters Shop) & stuff a pinata with candy (pronounced by birthday girl as a Pin-Wat-A):


4. Make cupcakes with pink sprinkles:


5. Eat said cupcake dressed like Sleeping Beauty:


6. Go on an adventure (with homemade felt maps/backpacks made by yours truly):


7. Celebrate with siblings, cousins and Russians (that's all that could fit in our house):


This balance bike we got from Eden Home (traded for advertising) has been hiding in my closet (dora decor, a la Mommy & Daddy). Since we're celebrating today, we thought you should too!


9. Sleep with your birthday gear:


10. Share:

Wow they have some cute stuff! I especially like the invitations with the cute large numbers on them :)

Erica said...

I just love the birthday banner... my son turns 2 January 7th... would look adorable... I really like the invitations with the large numbers too.

KRogers said...

Two Sisters Shop has great stuff! We have a houseful of teens and LOVE the Table Topics that we got from them earlier this year. The conversations and memories generated by this fun tool are priceless!!

Jennifer said...

I love the birthday banners. I couldn't find the tablecloths, but I would love a matched set.

The Things We Do said...

I NEED that birthday banner....okay, "need" is a strong word....but man is it cute and it's by far my favorite thing in that shop! I WANT it. See, I used the word "want" with restraint. =0)

Jessica Miller Kelley said...

Those punctuation page-markers are so cool! Quotes to mark memorable passages, question mark for something to think more about... excellent!

(and I love your homemade mochila and map. those are great!)

Missy said...

I like the custom designed stamps and the wine tasting coasters. Tres cute! :)

Stephanie said...

I like the Shower Steamers. It seems like I always have the days where I need Calgon to take me away, and just don't have the time for a bath so the Shower Steamers sound like an awesome alternative.

On a side note I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the homemade maps they are too cute!

Southern Gal said...

Way to throw a party!

I love the BonBon Baby Blankets. The Retro Happy Birthday Banners are great, too. Too much variety to choose from!

Melissa Craig Photography said...

Whitney said...

I need an address stamp, so I will go with that. Happy Birthday to you little girl!

Mrs. Pear said...

I LOVE the birthday banners and have actually been looking for one to serve each birthday because I love that kind of stuff. So I have to go with the birthday banner even though much turned my eye!

I was going to finally break down and make one myself, but this sounds MUCH better!

The Galtlets said...

I just love that birthday banner...SO MUCH! My baby turns 1 this coming Feb. and I would love to hang that in our house to make the day extra special.
The invitations with the large numbers are also very nice!

Sarah@VintageChic said...

Really the Retro Birthday Banners are the cutest!

Melissa said...

I really love the recycled trays for the kiddos. That is very green and I just love all the little places to put different types of food.

O Mom said...

Love the black and white tote and the retro Bday banner.

Jude20-25 said...

How am I suppose to pick ONE thing I like!?! What a great little shop! OK, well as soon as I saw the custom stamp, I started coveting... so that's probably it! Merry Christmas!

Jaden Paige said...

I love the polka dot accessory bag! How cute! But I do also adore the tablecloth and banner... Beautiful birthday decorations!

Mozer said...

What an adorable banner! I enjoyed looking through the shop. I like the Garden Money bank b/c it is divided into 3 categories and is cute. The other 3 category money banks I've seen before where kind of blah in terms of looking pretty --lol.

Grateful for Grace said...

I like the little banks. And the stamps are wonderful. The banner is to die for, though.

Brooke said...

I love the Happy Birthday banner! What a fun tradition to start to have that up at everyone's bdays! Happy 3rd birthday to your little girl :)

Brandi said...

Would love the birthday banner when my daughter turns 5 in June!!

Also like the Camo lunch tote--my 10 yr. old just went on his first hunt.

I am a notepad freak--like the cross one!

Kristen said...

Ok, that just has "absolutely ADORABLE!!" written all over it. You did an awesome job with the party. Looks like she had a blast.

inkelywinkely said...

I love the eight days a week planner and the tray set. The banner would reallt come in handy after Christmas for the birthday, though. LOL

This Aggie gal LOVES the A&M baby blanket. Sooo cute!

Amanda said...

I just had to tell you that I was reading this post with my 2 year old and she was like "LOOK MOMMY! DORA CUPCAKES!!" haha and then she thought that Emerson was her and said "Look Mommy, Peyton sleeping" and I had to tell her it wasn't her but she was convinced it was. So cute!

Lynn said...

The birthday banner/ tablecloth are my favorites, but I also like the floral lap desk.

Oh, and I love the t-shirt your daughter is wearing. I think you promoted the shop that made it before, but I can't remember. Can you help? My daughter turns 3 in Feb.

shana said...

Oh, the retro birthday banner is super cute, the stamps are great, and the invitations look beautiful, too.

Erica said...

I have been dying to find a bank with the three sections for tithing, spending, and saving, and I haven't been able to find one! I was pleased to find one there and I just might purchase that from their site; thanks! We'd also love the banner and tablecloth, while we're at it... :) Thanks, and happy birthday to your little one!

I love the Retro Birthday banner AND the invitations for the third birthday!!! How cool!! Thanks for finding this great place!! I will probably order my invites for my sweetie's third bday (in April) from there!

Amanda said...

The retro banner is adorable! My daughter has the magnetic dress up dolls on her wish list this year!

phasejumper said...

What a cool shop! I loved the table games and the What time is it game and the 8 days a week planner journal.

Amy said...

Super cute shop! You can tell they really put a lot of thought into what products they carry. Everything is so unique, and yet classic at the same time. If I had to pick a favorite it would be either the magnetic tins (great for a holiday road trip) or the address stamps (holiday cards and thank you notes!).

Traci said...

Oh, the shower steamers sound lovely! And the tote bag is beautiful. I would love to win it!

Sue D said...

My favorite item is Cook it in a Cup!--sounds like fun times in the kitchen.
