I love a good party! Who doesn’t? Presents, balloons, decorations, sweets, cake! You have to have cake.
Since the kids came along I made the decision that we would celebrate each birthday with a party and cake! Now when I say a party I’m not one of these mums who has a birthday party and invites the whole class. Although I can say that each of the kids had that one party in their nursery year. We had their birthday party celebration at our local soft play area, invited 30+ kids, entertained, I mean played referee for an hour filled them with more E numbers than their little bodies could manage and sent them on their way an hour or so later with a party bag and cake!
Fast forward a few years and numerous birthdays later I still love a good party. I love the excitement from the kids when they ask what type of cake I’m I getting this year?
Although a tip if you want to save the pennies, I buy up partyware thoughtout the year when I see it go on sale or end of line clearances in the supermarket and store it in my party box! I make my own cakes and decorate them (I’m no professional but the kids are always delighted and that’s what counts) I use everyday crafts and art supplies to decorate. I have even used a black bin liner to cut out a bat for a batman themed party!
Any hints or tips would be most appreciated and cost cutting money saving ideas are most welcome!!!
So for now I’m away to do some pinning over on Pinterest .
