I can hardly believe it, but I have TWO birthdays to plan in the next month! We’re making it easy this year – the boys are sharing a party. They’re best friends and honestly, all they care about is that they have each other at their parties, so we’re combining them.
And it’s more for us than for them.
We have not had one of our big parties since before the kids came into our lives. We used to have epic parties – the types of parties that people would ask us when the next one would be so they could be sure to be in town. And we LOVED throwing huge parties! The bigger, the better… and we like to go BIG. Well, we’re not going HUGE, but it’s going to be big and it’s going to be FUN, goddammit!
Great cake (I always have a great cake because cake is my favorite thing).
Babysitters for the kids.
I’m whipping this up and I feel like I’m pulling the kid-friendly aspects of the party (theme, invitations, banners, favors) out of my you-know-what (really, I’m just pulling them out of Et.sy), but I want to focus on the real details. I want to focus on the food we’ll make, the drinks we’ll serve, and the cake I’ll construct.
Here I come, birthday season 2015!
