As you’ve probably already guessed, I love parties! I love them so much that I usually start planning my son’s birthday parties way too far in advance. Kids’ interests change so quickly - what’s a favorite this month may be a thing of the past in a few weeks - so my party themes often change while I’m in the middle of planning. As a party planning momma and party blogger, I have a lot of party themes written down in my notebook. I hope some of these ideas will help you plan a memorable and creative party your children will love!
When it comes to a child’s birthday party, cake is probably one of the most important elements. I am by no means a professional cake baker, but over the years I have found some easy cheats to create cute and charming cakes without having to pay for, or you can do your own extensive piping and fondant work.
One simple strategy will minimize birthday party preparation, clean-up and costs: Having your birthday party somewhere else besides home.

Here are some cheap and easy ideas for a fun birthday party:
