He bangs the drums: a party

Boy parties rock.
This one was no exception!
Here are the pictures and a few details for Zeb's 2nd birthday party.
(Drum roll please...)
The front of the invites, drawn by this lovely sister.

The main attraction of the party and his gift from us. 
Second hand from Gumtree (for a third of the price as a new set)! 

The food table. 
Tim painted a blank canvas with a black and white chevron pattern to match the back of the invitations and the favour bags. I collected and cleaned tins of various sizes to hold the food. The large ones were baby formula tins sprayed with chrome paint.
I used a yellow colour scheme for the food, to bring everything together: chicken twisties; cheese sticks; passion fruit marshmallows; lemon curd tartlets; jelly and custard cups; star biscuits; buttered popcorn; pineapple; chicken mini subs; and lemonade!
 A very simple smash drum cake.
 Instead of candles, Zeb beat the drum and smashed the white chocolate disc sitting on top of the cake...
 ...which revealed a centre full of (yellow) lollies.
 We strung up a 'banging wall' so even the little ones could make some noise.
 And handed out chevron favour bags.
Most of all, it's my that kids make every party awesome!
