When our first baby was born after years of trying, our family, friends, neighbors, and co-workers shared our joy. They hosted baby showers for us, sent us flowers, and gave our daughter countless sentimental gifts after her arrival. Two years later, we were blessed with our second child - another daughter - yet her arrival did not receive the same fanfare as our first child.
Now that the weather is cold, gone are the days of the outdoor pool parties and people are planning fun indoor party themes instead. One of my favorite party themes that is great for all ages is a Movie Night Party. Who doesn’t love a fun movie night complete with a concession stand of delicious treats?! This party works for young guests with short cartoons or even older kids with a double-feature movie and slumber party.
If there’s one author that both kids and adults love, it’s Dr. Seuss! Many of us grew up reading his stories, and now we’re reading them to our kids. There are so many funny characters and silly words that you can easily turn into colorful party decorations, party food, and games kids will love. To brainstorm ideas for this party, I spent some time at the library with my son reading several Dr. Seuss books and by the time we went home, my notebook was filled with ideas.
