In six months, my kids will each turn another year older. They have birthdays that are two days apart. Last year we did a joint party with a “fairy and garden gnome theme” which was a lot fun but REALLY time consuming. I swore, after hosting 20 little fairies and gnomes that we were just going to a bounce house or <<shudder>> Chuck E. Cheese for the next birthday.
But here I am, thinking of party themes for their next birthday. I blame all of the design and party planner bloggers. They make it look SO easy and let’s face it, their blogs are like crack, so addictive.
Here are a few ideas I’ve gleamed from other blogs:
French Bistro: My daughter loves all things French (and I am sure my son will too but currently all he says is “choo choo” and “car” and France has both choo choos and cars!) She’s always begging for “French pancakes” and on our special “mommy/daughter days” we always go to the creperie downtown. I’d love to make a crepe paper Eiffel Tower and have little art easels set up in the yard.
Of course both my kids love Woody and Jessie from Toy Story so I can picture a great cowboy themed party in our yard as well!
What are your favorite kids’ birthday party themes?
