I looove to throw a good birthday party.
It really engages my creative side.. I really don’t think it costs a whole lot of money to throw a good party when you’re creative about it..
My son it turning 9 soon, and I’m excited for the party possibilities! He broke my heart last year and claimed he was too old for a party. He invited a bunch of kids to the movies. All he wanted was to sit with his friends with no parents around and act like a grown up..
*snfl* where is the fun in that?!
The year before that for his 7th we had a monster birthday party. It fell on Friday the 13th so..yeah. it was pretty fitting!
Is that not one of the coolest cakes you’ve ever seen?!
One of the things I love about my husband’s family is how willing to go “all out” with us… this party was like a second Halloween!
We dimmed the lights and used black lights to light most of the party… Had a coloring station with highlighters that a lot of the girls loved..
This year our theme is:
Oh yeah… I’m talking targets galore…using the manroom in our house as a blacklight training center…. and then painting the adults up as zombies and have them coming out from the woods (weather permitting)
Prepare for some epic posts involving all my ideas 😉
