A note from Christy: I am pretty lucky to have some really great friends, and even luckier that many of them like to go wild planning their kids’ birthday parties. Below is a post from my friend from college, Sarah, who threw her son a pretty awesome Superhero Birthday Party. Good timing, as my boys are set on a Batman/Superhero party next, her party gives me lots of ideas! Enjoy Sarah’s post!
Conley’s Superhero Birthday Party
I will confess that Conley’s 2nd birthday party was very small…in fact, it might be a stretch to call it a party since it was just Conley, mom, and dad. Since I went small last year, I knew that I wanted to do something fun and special for his 3rd birthday. His current obsession right now is Spiderman, so we decided to celebrate with a Superhero Themed 3rd Birthday Party!
The invitation’s muted colors and star accents provided the color palette and sparkly theme that carried throughout the party, from the aqua table runner to the shimmery silver gray accents. Silver beads and ornament-size disco balls were sprinkled about to add to the party dance theme. And a do-it-yourself cake stand embellished with glittery 2013 decals was an inexpensive way to give the serving table a New Year’s theme. With candles lit, it was all very glamorous.
We know that planning a Christmas party can be stressful, but we have some helpful tips from SheKnows.com on how to ease your mind.
1. Send your Christmas party invitations out early, at least a month in advance. The holidays get busy and it’s better to have your party on everyone’s calendar as soon as you start the planning.
2. Create a budget. Nobody likes a surprise when checking out at the grocery store. A little planning will go a long way.
3. If you are preparing the food, create a menu and timeline for when you need to shop, prepare and cook everything so you can be 100% ready. Prepare as much as you can in the days leading up to the party. Continue reading →
My best friend, Angie, is as obsessed about planning good parties as I am, so it’s a no brainer that we team up when considering kids’ birthday party ideas. Angie knows to plan well in advance. We even did a little mini photo shoot with her daughter, Kate, so she’d have the perfect photo on her birthday party invitation. I’ll let Angie herself tell you about planning this adorable Pinkalicious birthday party—she did a fabulous job!
