Ever since his sister’s first birthday, Max has been talking about his birthday party. He decided right away that he wanted a dinosaur party because dinosaur’s are his favourite thing ever! For months we’ve been talking about and planning his birthday – I love that he’s old enough to truly get excited about it. And, he doesn’t just get excited about his birthday, but every birthday that comes up. Birthdays are so exciting when you’re a little kid!
When I throw parties for my kids I like to concentrate on a few things that I want to make, that will make them feel special, and I don’t stress the rest. The most important thing, to me, is to make the birthday boy (or girl) feel special. If I’m stressed, I know they’ll be feeling it and I’ll feel like I missed out on their special day. I like to keep it simple and casual, so the kids can have fun, but since I’m not a great organizer (and I know this about myself) I get things ready ahead of time and once the party comes I take it easy and enjoy it along with everyone else.
Through the rest of this week I’ll be sharing a couple of the dino themed things I did for this party just in case you’re interested in throwing a dino themed party yourself.
In the meantime, here are a few pictures from the party. The birthday boy had SO much fun and I loved watching him feeling so special.
