Around here, we’re in the minority with our at-home birthday parties. We just can’t budget the expensive parties at bounce houses, playlands, and other fancy-schmancy party spots.
So, I work extra hard to plan super fun parties around a theme the birthday girl can get excited about.
My girls plan their parties all. year. long. Seriously. Lorelai announced the day after her coveted Halloween party that she was having a tea party the next year. And, she did. My Fancy Nancy tea party was a big hit with my 6-year-old and her friends.
She’s been planning her 7th birthday ever since, but I still have half a year to go! Having a party at home means that I can completely control the budget — and have a little fun with the year’s theme. Check out these fun projects that you can tweak to fit any party, on Babble.com…
