Turner’s Birthday Party

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!

  1. Nice creative outdoor birthday party you got there. It looks like the kids are having so much fun using the jumping castle. Thanks for sharing this idea I might pull off this trick on my son’s birthday.
