Christmas Birthday Party

Hosting a birthday party in December can be hard. With busy schedules, extra activities and tight budgets it can be easy to neglect your December babies. Believe us we get it. Promise. (5 of our 10 kids were born in December!!) Here’s a few tips we’ve learned over the years when it comes to celebrating December Birthdays!

*If you choose to host a party at your home, choose a theme or colors that can coordinate with your home decor. There are a LOT of possibilities here: Winter Wonderland, Snow Party, Icing on the Cake Party, Christmas Craft Party, Cookie Decorating Birthday, Camping Party, Buffalo Plaid Party, Gingerbread Decorating Party, PJs and Pancakes, Slumber Party or Movie Night are a few ideas. Choosing a manageable theme is priority No. 1!

*Keep decorations simple and concentrate on one area of your home. For example, a dessert table or consession stand is easy to set up and doesn’t compete with your beautiful holiday decorations.

*Consumable party favors are always nice in a season where kids are bombarded with stuff. We love a cookie, box of candy, or popcorn!

*Keep the guest list maneageable. Don’t get us wrong, we LOVE a huge event but in December it can be overwhelming especially if you’re hosting multiple parties.

*Have fun, and CELEBRATE! Try not to incorporate too much :).

Here’s a few pics of a Movie Night Party. Easy set up and clean up and the girls had a blast!

Winter Wonderland Birthday Party

Kacey did such a wonderful job on this Winter Wonderland! Shades of pink and grey filled the dining room, and guests were greeted with “snow”. We kept the decorations in one area and used a ribbon backdrop, hanging ornaments, and coordinating Christmas decorations. We love the way the table turned out! img_7479 img_7481 img_7485 img_7489 img_7491 img_7501 img_7507 img_7510 img_7512 img_7517 img_7523 img_7525 img_7528 img_7530 img_7537 img_7545 img_7547 img_7548There were squeels of delight as the darling girls entered the party. Happy Birthday sweet Lila we adore you, and we loved planning this event with you!
