We are getting into party mode here at Piazza de Krebs! Gabby’s birthday is just a mere 12 days away (8!) and then Amelia’s birthday party is mid September. Our family tradition is big parties for 1, 5, 10, and 16- a rule that cuts down on both cost and expectation of extreme parties that seem so normal nowadays. I just can’t do 3 HUGE parties every year, trying to top the last… not me! So this year Gabby is having family and friends over at the park for simple cupcakes, some archery, and snacks while Amelia is having “AJ Extravaganza… with Sparkles!” (She totally thought of that name herself!)
This is the party board I came up with to kind of organize my ideas:
All Amelia has been talking about is her birthdy… how she wants lots of colors, honey sticks, and glitter everywhere! Lol, she has been toting around an Oriental Trading Co. catalog for weeks, circliing ideas and jotting down “notes. Adorable!!
I did come up with an invitation as well:
It is very very “her”!!
I can’t wait to get started on some of the decorations and such… fun times ahead!!
