We love some Carebears around here. Mainly thanks to a cheer bear that Emma stole from my parent's house about a year ago. Ever since, I pick them up when I see them in Goodwill or consignment stores. I also frequent ebay looking for low priced small Carebears to add to the collection. I actually found three brand new ones with tags for $3 at a nicer consignment store. Then my butthole dog ate two of them. And I almost choked him.
Moving on. We love Carebears. So, when I asked Emma what she wanted to do for her third birthday, she said Carebears!! Natch. So I got to planning. And talking. And discussing with my multi-talented MIL (decorator extraordinaire!)
The party came together pretty quickly after only about a week of prep! See below for details! And sorry in advance for the photo bombing. But maybe you want a Carebears party one day.............
The favor bags-I found a birthday website that had Carebears party favors so I got whistles, notepads, and blowers. The other stuff is from Michael's dollar spot or Party City. We only had 5 children, so it wasn't expensive!
The cute lunch plates and napkins from the same site. And that silverware was 0.97 a pack at Walmart! It matched perfectly!
The cute birthday bow wreath I found on Pinterest! So easy and cute!
The lunch table-minus the burgers and dogs!
Another Pinterest find-cut lemon slices, dye in food coloring overnight, freeze, and use as "ice cubes" in a drink.
The appetizer station! Mom's yummy black bean and corn salsa, veggie tray, and fruit kabobs! Rainbow, of course!
Rainbow crayon art-floating around on Twitter, blogs, and Pinterest. So easy and fun!
Cute door hangings that FeFe and GiGi made!
Excuse my mirror flash-a photog I am not.
Oh here's a pretty little model posing by the bears.
Front room decor-we got 2 dozen primary colored balloons for pops throughout the house. The treat bags I showed you earlier were lining the front walk in rainbow colors with matching balloons tied on!
The precious and creative birthday banner my MIL made.
Some of the boys: Dad, Jason, Gerry, Hays
I love this picture of Sitchy with Emma. So cute!
Even though I'm not looking and Emma looks pained, this is sweet.

A shirt I found on Etsy for Emma. It was like $10 and is personalized!
Notice Emma is wearing her Carebears pillowcase dress-also found on Etsy for $15!!
Haha, her surprised face!
This is not a great picture of the cupcakes, but it's the only one I could find. See below.
I found this image on Google, printed it off, and took it to Edgar's-the best bakery in Birmingham! They were amazing and looked JUST LIKE the picture! I ordered the cupcake toppers online for like $8.
Cute birthday hats-also found with the party favors and plates/napkins.
Sweet friends sugar loading together.
Dark pic but still sweet of my birthday girl.
OH! And Sarah has something to tell y'all.............baaahahahaha!
