The sun is shining, and we’re all excited to get outside and enjoy the warm weather. One of my favorite activities in the summer is visiting one of the outdoor pools or splash pads around the city. It’s a great way to keep cool while enjoying the summer weather. Pool parties can be a great party theme for all ages. It’s a theme that teens still love, but it’s fun for the younger kids too. My son’s first birthday party was held at a pool, and all of the parents were invited to go swimming with the kids too. A pool party goes with all sorts of water-themed parties like a Shark Party, Mermaid Party, Beach Party and more! For this party, I mixed in a few different pieces to help your party brainstorming.
Expectations of both parents and children run high to have the perfect party. Despite your best efforts, if you have a young or sensitive child, it is possible that your child or a guest may end up in tears at the exciting, stimulating event in which you have invested considerable time and money.
Birthday parties can be expensive, if you don’t watch your bottom line. But, surprise! You can throw a 24-hour slumber party for your child’s birthday that won’t break the bank or cause mom or dad to have a nervous breakdown. Here’s how.
I don’t mean to brag, but my husband and I have thrown quite a few awesome birthday parties over the years. However, when reflecting back over all the parties we’ve thrown, it’s clear to me that the most memorable parties were the messiest. Messy and birthday parties go together better than you might imagine. After all, what could be more festive than a little bit of parent-approved pandemonium?
