Rowan turned two yesterday and to celebrate, we had a few family and friends over for a party!

Felt; 7 sheets (8.5 x 11") each of two co-ordinating colours and 4 for lettering. An iron and ironing board, iron-on transfer paper (such as Heat N Bond or Wonder Under), sharp scissors, lettering (I used 'Airplane' which you can download for free if you type in '0' for the donation amount. It's kind of a jerk move, but I have a hunch that a lot of people do it), 5.5 m of 4cm (6 yds of 1.5 inch) wide ribbon and a pencil.
Depending on whether you want to sew the pennants on or glue them, you'll also need straight pins and a sewing machine with co-ordinating thread or fabric glue.
Let's get started!
Print out your lettering (I used airplane in size 500) and cut them out. I noticed that the 'p', 'd' and 'b' were essentially all the same (just flipped around...it was a "duh, Anne" moment) when I cut them out, so you can save paper if you use this font and just type out one of them. I also cut out a dinosaur (a brontosaurus - I'm becoming reacquainted with dinosaur species) silhouette just for kicks.

I'm 8 days away from having a two year old. We're getting ready to P-A-R-T-Y!

I'm so pumped for this birthday because Rowan (sort of) knows what's going on. He knows there is cake served at birthday parties and he's cake's biggest fan. I'll be sure to to share all the things I'm preparing for the big day, and how the whole thing goes down!
Now I must leave, someone is begging to feed apples to the horses. If you were to ask Rowan, sometimes they eat cake.
