Don't click away yet! I love creative parties! I'd just like to be the voice that whispers:
It's perfectly okay to skip the bouncy castle, licensed characters, and over-the-top themes. Kids need love, excitement, and cake.Did someone else just breathe a sigh of relief? Good.
I thought I'd better see what Elise had to wear. This sweet yard sale dress was forgotten in the 3T clothing bag. Wouldn't garden snails be cute for lunch outdoors?
And just like that, a pink-and-green scheme was hatched.
I flipped through my stash of yard sale ribbon and wrap, then carried a stack of pastel quilts from the bedrooms.
So far, no money out of pocket--and the naturally wild centerpieces fit right into budget.
We draped a lace cloth over my DIY crate table, where the sun erased those mystery stains, then piled leftover wedding bubbles into a $5 Goodwill bowl.
The birthday girl: delighted.
