i don’t know about you, but one of the times i am most on pinterest, is when i am planning a party! birthday parties these days seem to be all about the ‘theme.’ how am i capturing this stage in my child’s life? what do they love? sock monkeys? princesses? soccer? whatever it is…there are a gazillion pieces of inspiration out there for us as parents planning ‘the shin-dig of all shin-digs’ for our tots ‘n taters, right?
i’m one of those moms who would love to go all-out, but alas, reality sets in, and i realize i don’t have an immeasurable amount of time or money to put into these big days. but i ‘pin’ ideas like nobody’s biz-ness. you? 😉
in all seriousness, though, i have gotten so much inspiration and motivation from all of the ideas, posts, and products i’ve been exposed to through blogs and shops i’ve found over the years. i have a ton of creative bones in my body, but not always the ‘superhuman’ package to go with them, so our parties are usually middle-of-the-road as far as cost and effort. i’ve learned, through some trial and error, that what matters most is that little one you are celebrating, so don’t put an insane amount of pressure on that big day or yourself. i hope you find some things here that make the whole process even easier for you come party time!
that said…welcome to the birthday linky party, where we’ll be linking up all of our birthday-related posts and pins. link to a post from your blog, or a pin, or even an entire pinterest board. i’ll be linking up my posts and boards as well!
i am certain you’ll find something helpful / wonderful / interesting here! i’ve got a princess party coming in december, so i’ll personally have an eye out for those links! thanks in advance for sharing!
