September has rolled around once again and it’s time to start thinking about Jack’s birthday party in early October.
We’ve done the Thomas the Train birthday party twice now because Jack’s obsessed with trains. Last year, we did a pizza party with a Halloween theme. It was planned very last minute but came out pretty cute, if I do say so myself!
But this year, I wanted to capitalize on the weather this time of year… when it’s fun to be outside in the evening… pumpkin patch style. I’m thinking hay bales and s’mores. White lights strung all around the yard and ghosts hanging from the trees. I’m also picturing a really cute homemade scarecrow… now if I can only come up with a budget for said party… and more importantly stick to that budget!
It’s getting harder and harder as our very close friends and their families along with our families leaves us with a 40+ person guest list. Not so good for the budget… but it always turns out to be so fun and what better excuse than your first born, to throw a great party!
Hmmmm, I’m going to have to get really creative.
