Posted on October 21, 2014 by 6 | 0 Comments

Hey friends! Hope everyone is doing well! There is always something worth celebrating around here, but last week was a little more special than the rest! Sweet Cates turned four!!!! This child has such a sweet spirit and her adorable little smile is contagious! To celebrate the birthday girl the Gilbreath family headed to Rosemary Beach for a few days and ended the celebratory week with a party in Montgomery. It is no secret that Ashley and Barrett are huge Auburn fans. Auburn University holds many memories for them as it is where they met and fell in love. Little Cates is a tiny Auburn Tiger and it seemed there was no better way to celebrate her birthday than with an Auburn cheerleading/football themed party!

We called The Tipping Point, a cute little family friendly bar and restaurant in Montgomery's charming Hampstead neighborhood and reserved the side yard for the party. We covered picnic tables in an astro turf runner cut by our sweet sweet friends over at Georgia Floors Direct. Mason jars filled with sunflowers adorned the tabletops along with Tootsie Pop stuffed boxwoods! Too cute!

This little bundle of cuteness almost makes me want to cheer for the LSU Tigers....almost ;)[/caption] PARISH's sweet lemonade stand served as a watering hole for Toomer's Corner Lemonade. Mini footballs and poms poms served as favors for the little guests along with yummy iced football and megaphone shaped sugar cookies. Guests nibbled on a hummus tray, pimento cheese bites, mini BLT's,  tomato and feta bruschetta bites, fresh fruit, and chips with an onion dip. The kiddos of the group munched on mini grilled cheese sandwiches. The cake featured a blonde-headed Auburn cheerleader and was made by Cake Designs. Cates loved the cheerleader's hair and poms poms :) [caption id="attachment_13249" align="aligncenter" width="669"]IMG_1778 This fun lemonade stand is for sale at PARISH! It would also be adorable as a hot chocolate stand as the weather cools down.[/caption]

Cates is so special to us and celebrating her is always fun! Happy birthday, sweet Cates! We can't wait to see what God does with your life....you are meant for greatness and we know you will do big things!
