When you have two young girls, born on the same day two years apart, you throw one joint bash to celebrate! This year’s theme was watermelon as sharing a birthday is sweet! Today I’m sharing the good photos and some outtakes of our little photoshoot used for the birthday party invitation. Consider this invitation idea when you share a birthday but are not actually twins!
Four years ago today we welcomed Brielle, our first little bundle of pink joy.
She was 5 days late yet still a peanut at 6 pounds, 9 ounces. She gave me the title of mom and thus threw me into this #momlife.
The girls were instantly friends and after hosting a fun Under the Sea themed party last year, I wanted another fun, yet easy theme for these special sisters that share a birthday. Watermelons are on trend and easy to find or colorful enough to make work in a party theme so that was it!
Since it’s hard to find birthday party invitations when you share a birthday but are not actually twins, I got creative and we made our own. I donned the girls in these super cute watermelon bathing suits from Target, wrote up messaging on my $9.97 Walmart letterboard and had some fun.
First were some attempts at telling your soon to be new age. Good job Brielle!
Hailey, you need to work on that. (and PS sorry for the poor color quality here!)
How about you stand there and look super cute. Ok good!
Next, we sat them close and tried to get them to smile together. Brielle was way too excited and ended up looking like this in most shots.
Lastly we let them enjoy one ENORMOUS slice of watermelon and they were in heaven. This ended up being the shot I used, ordering 5×7 prints to stick in an envelope with some additional messaging slipped in.
Don’t each the green part, Hailey!
Messy, juicy faces ensued and afterwards they cleaned off in the sprinkler. One great shot was all I needed so I considered this fun adventure a success and look forward to many more ways we celebrate these girlies in the future!
Happy birthday my loves! Follow me on Instagram as we’ll surely be enjoying our family tradition of a single ice cream cake and four spoons tonight!
Look for more glimpses into their watermelon birthday party in upcoming posts!
