I am really excited about planning Jayden's first birthday party.
I know it's early.
But, I can't help myself!!
I may or may not already be working on his party invitations.
So....I thought I would ask all of you...
What is the coolest thing you've ever seen at a birthday party? It doesn't have to be something grand (let's face it, I don't have the money for grand.) Just something you thought was a nice touch.
The kind of thing that made you think- Oooh, I want to use that someday.
Or do you have a great party planning website?
(I have taken a little look at pinterest and will probably be fully sucked into it soon.)
I do have an idea for how I want to use his monthy pictures. (Or at least I know that I do want to use them.)
But other than that, I don't know. I can't even decide on a theme!
I don't want to go overboard, but I do want it to be something special. I already know we're having at at my parents' house. I looked into what it would cost to do it at the zoo...yikes...maybe when he's older. But, I am excited about having it at my parents' house and this way we can do all the cooking.
I am considering making his cake. I always imagined I would, but these days it's hard to fit in the time to cook even a simple meal. I have not done any real cake decorating in over 9 months. I was thinking of maybe trying to do cake pops for the first time to go along with the cake.
So, as you can see, I need help. Any ideas you have would be great!! I know so many of my twitter and bloggy friends are way more creative than me!
