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!
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. No matter how you are celebrating, there are some key factors to keep in mind to reduce the stress and enjoy this fun milestone.
I don’t watch a lot of television but when I do, it’s usually a reality TV show. I always get hooked on ‘the most dramatic rose ceremony in the history of The Bachelor’ and I drool over The Food Channel’s recipes. A fun idea for a party that could be modified for any age group is: ‘Do You Have What it Takes to be a Reality TV Star?’ Can you decorate a cupcake that leaves the party guests in awe? 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!
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.
