There are so many options these days that it's hard deciding which way to go.  Do I have the party in my backyard or at the ice skating rink?  Do I hire a magician or have a scavenger hunt?  What games would be fun? There are definitely many decisions to make but the fun part is YOU get to design your own party and we'll show you how!

kristes 1st birthday

I have been having birthday parties for my girls since their first birthday (they are now 13 and 15 years old) and enjoyed planning each and every one of them. The picture on this page is from my oldest daughter's 1st birthday (I made that 3D Little Mermaid cutout...more about that later). So as you can see, my passion for birthdays started early.

I always started with a theme, usually a character (until they got older) and worked around it, incorporating ideas as I went along. For my oldest daughter's first birthday we had a Little Mermaid theme complete with a Little Mermaid impersonator, face painting, Little Mermaid cake (I made the cake topper), a grotto, Little mermaid lollipops (I made with a lollipop mold and put in a topiary tree) and homemade favors. We had her first birthday party at the Miami Seaquarium and so that was also part of our entertainment.

Yes, perhaps I overdid it a little (okay, a lot), but I had the greatest time planning her birthday and in the process created a beautiful keepsake for my daughters.

We have been celebrating our children's birthdays for the past 14 years and because we have had so much fun, my daughters and I decided to share with you what we love planning and doing....great kids birthday parties.
