Are you about to plan your child’s birthday party? Perhaps it’s the memorable first birthday, the one with the entire toddler mommy-and-me class invited, or your preschooler’s classroom event.

Reality TV Star Party

Can you get through an obstacle course faster than a monkey? Do your karaoke solos get standing ovations? Then you may have what it takes to be a reality TV star!


Tweetie Pie Baby Shower

A really sweet (or should I say “tweet”) way to celebrate a new baby is to host a “Tweetie Pie” themed baby shower. Think little birds, birdhouses, nests and delicious pie. Sounds adorable, right?
