Happy Tuesday, Friends! Today's Show and Tell Tuesday topic is Kids Parties! I love a good party and today I'm going back through my archives to show y'all the bday parties and other parties I've thrown for my kids over the years...
I had this theme in my head for MONTHS before the party. It was my first time to plan a kids party and I had so much fun making something fun for "our little monkey" ;)
Two-year-old Luke LOVED him some construction trucks.... we used to grab Sonic drinks and park somewhere just to watch them. A construction party was the only appropriate theme! I purchased a $5 roll of caution tape and went to town!
For Luke's third birthday I was soooooo pregnant with Mason. I was swollen (like... bedridden swollen) and Dave talked me down off the big birthday party ledge and we hosted a quick party at the park. The day of the party there were crazy winds, I spent almost the whole party in a lawn chair with my feel up and pretty much everything I had planned was a total bust. We had the best time :)
When I decided on this vintage superhero theme I kind of went crazy.
Maybe it was "skipping" planning Luke's third, but whatever it was I legit lost my mind on this one.
I made every one of those cupcakes. And cut out the wrappers. And made the toppers.
And can we just talk about Mason in the pic below? I die.
I will never forget this party because I was up at the club WAY before sunrise, 9 months pregnant blowing up balloons. #priorities ;)
This was kind of our one last hurrah before Griffin was born and we had so much fun!
This kind of summed up the morning ;)
My favorite birthday party to date was the combined party I did for all three kids. It was a monster theme and I had THE BEST time putting it all together! Again... I went a teeny bit crazy.
I drew and painted the monster beanbag toss, made their party shirts and just love how everything turned out.
It was so special to get to do a TRIPLE party! Look how excited they were! :)
Two years ago Luke requested Minecraft (of course!) and it was probably the hardest party for me to put together because I really don't "get" Minecraft ;) Pinterest was totally my friend for this party!
We had A LOT of boys over that day and I'm pretty sure none of them cared about the decor ;)
The weekend after Luke's party I threw Mason his special request - a Sir Mason and the Knights of the Rectangle Table party ;) I'm not sure why he wanted knights, but I had a blast with his theme of choice.
The day after Mason's knights party we shared some of Griffin's favorite things (cupcakes, necklaces, bows and PINK) with a few of her little girlfriends (and Mason).
Last year I let go of some of my party planner OCD and let Luke plan his own party. He had a few boys over for pizza, a trip to the arcade and a sleepover. Easy peasy and officially dubbed "the best party ever!!!"
And the latest party was a combined flamingo and camouflage party at a local children's museum. Super easy and super fun.
Another one of my favorite kids parties was a Kindergarten Kickoff Party Shay and I threw when our kids were heading off to kindergarten...
My favorite part of the night was when we took these pictures :)
I haven't even started thinking about the kids birthday parties... which could be an issue since I have three to plan and they're all next month. Ooops! :) I'm looking for inspiration so link up below!!!
