In the past, I’ve had extravagant birthday parties for Turner! There was always a theme, decorations, balloons, food to go along with the theme, fancy food labels, paper invitations special ordered from Etsy, etc. This year, I was so busy that his birthday really crept up on me! I toyed with the idea of coming up with a theme, but I really was out of time! Stew and I were drinking coffee and trying to brainstorm what we could do with less than two weeks to plan. We thought of just ordering a jump castle and gambling with the weather! So, he pulled up a local company on his phone and placed the order. DONE! Easiest party plan ever!
Turner’s big party was Saturday. It turned out to be the most beautiful day! I set up a table outside with some sandwiches, veggies and dip, popcorn and pretzels, and cupcakes. The parents hung out and chatted while the kids when buck wild! It was like having a built-in babysitter!
The only time they all came out was for cupcakes, of course!
I took that opportunity to steal a hug from my big 4 year old, who was clearly not interested and too busy to stop apparently…
We even managed to get a post-party, super sweaty, family photo!
So, we pulled it off with minimal effort, and very little time to plan! I kinda like that way of living! Happy 4th to our sweet boy!
