Fun Birthday Ideas

If you are a mom of several children, chances are you are probably hard up on creative and fun birthday ideas for your kiddos. You must have tried a pool party or a cowboy party at some point, as well as a Tinkerbell party for your little girl on her first birthday and probably have to summon all the creative juices to come up with something original that both kids and adults will enjoy every time someone is about to turn a year older.

Birthday’s Never End…

The bad news is that it never ends, everybody celebrates their birthday each year, after all, and you ought to keep spawning those fresh ideas to make each party a stand out. Not to worry because it does not really have to be you who needs to be in charge most of the time!

For a change, this year, why not ask your children to come up with ideas of their own, then vote for the best one to use in the upcoming birthdays. You might suggest an Eighties theme party, if you must and pray hard that the little ones will appreciate it and vote for it, but nonetheless, if another idea wins, go ahead and use it on your next party. That way you can focus on some other aspects and details of the party like catering and decorations, perhaps, other than worrying about the theme. Maybe you can even contemplate on allowing your girl to come to the party dressed in one of those LEGO camp characters like those from Superheroes themed class that are appropriate for her age.

Your children will DEFINITELY be up to the task and you could use the extra downtime to do something interesting that is not party-related, too, like going to your favorite bookshop or going to the salon for a foot spa treatment!

Preparing early for Christmas

It’s not even half way through the year yet, but I think it’s good to be ahead of your schedule to prepare Christmas Party Invitations for families, friends, classmates or officemates. You’ll never know when you will be swamped by work and too busy to go to the mall, so there’s nothing wrong to prepare early.

I know some friends and former officemates who shop as early as September or as soon as they received their mid-year bonus to avail mall sale. They buy clothes in bulk to get bigger and better discounts. For the thrifty or more practical ones, they make and design their own gift items. It saves them cash and adds a personal touch (depending on the recipient’s personality) to the gift.
