I loved this party on Sex And The City the movie.
Giada on Foodnetwork planning and giving a party for her daughters first birthday. It was all about eat, play, fun! The kids had their own poundcake to decorate - you could do anything like cookies such as sugar cookies and even cookies in shapes if you had a theme like animals you could incorporate shapes that way. Just have fun!
A site I learned of through a friend has many is Kara's party. There are so many sites and places to find neat ideas - blogs for one! My friends and family amaze me with their creativity in event planning with the birthday parties for their kids. Oh, I love it! So fun and that's the main thing I believe - whether you have a theme for a big event or just have a few people over - have fun! Big or small - nothing is right or wrong - it's all a matter of preference and preference at that moment. Just enjoy even if you just keep it basic and simple - that can be the best! I think of myself and how I have to keep it basic and simple. I see all these neat ideas and if I were to try to pull some of them off how I could end up in a disaster. And that's the beauty of it and just to laugh and go on come what may! But a key ingredient I think is to have help. It's always fun to be doing things together with a friend. And you can benefit from a second eye and skill set. We can all benefit from a little help along the way.
