Last week, SavvyMom reader Sandra shared pictures of her son’s camping-themed birthday party with us here on the PartySavvy blog. This backyard bash was a true celebration, and included a creatively decorated cake, tents, camping food and outdoor movies.
We were smitten’and also inspired, and as such, we’d love to run a regular series here on the blog featuring real-life birthday parties you’ve put together for your kids. They don’t have to be fancy or overly fussy; we just want to see how you celebrate birthdays in your home.
If you’re interested, please share one photo from the party you’re most proud of in the comments below. If selected, I will be in touch to ask you some questions about the event, and to get a few more pictures from you, if you’re interested in sharing (I hope you are). As a party enthusiast, I’m always looking for creative ideas, and I love the idea of introducing SavvyMom readers to each other.
To get the ball rolling, I’ll go first. The photo above is from my son’s recent birthday party. He turned 13 back in April, and we celebrated with a family-only party (the friend sleepover party happened the following week). I wanted to put an emphasis on my new teenager by celebration his childhood, but I knew it had to be done in a way that wouldn’t embarrass his sensitive soul. So I collected thirteen photos, one from each of his previous birthdays (or sometime close to them), and hung them from helium-filled balloons that were displayed over our living room mantle. It was simple, made a statement and gave everyone something to talk about; I was thrilled with the outcome.
Okay, now it’s your turn. Feel free to upload a photo or video from one of your own parties’I can’t wait to see what you come up with.
