I didn't go very far with the theme. We did an outdoor party, so I just didn't feel the need (or have the energy) for a ton of decorations. And plates just get thrown away, so why spend money on themed ones, you know? Basically just the cakes and their shirts had Thing 1/Thing 2 on them. Oh, and the invitations:
Okay, what's your vote: hilarious or creepy? Honestly, I think they're a little of both, but I think the hilarity outweighs the creepiness. (My husband disagreed.) Either way, that's what we sent out.
As for the actual party, there was just a bunch of wild boys (and a few slightly-less-wild girls) running around, getting wet, and jumping on the trampoline, while the babies watched in awe. And the cake smash, of course. So, here are the pics. Enjoy.

|I barely got the big kids to slow down and eat a cupcake. Now that's having fun!|
|The Thing cupcakes! (I was afraid the red wrappers would get discolored if I baked the cupcakes in them, so I baked them in white ones and then put those in the red. Big mistake.)|
|Fantastic smash cakes made by my friend. They were great!|
|This was the extent of Paxton's experience|
|Piper knew what a "smash" cake was all about.|
|She devoured it. It was epic.|
