New York City Themed 4th Birthday Party for Baby K

New York City Themed 4th Birthday Party for Baby K…Despite this awful pandemic, birthdays are still happening for my little babies and every year older is another year to celebrate! I know how lucky we are to be healthy and together, and I want to still have pleasant memories of these crazy times. So, when Baby K turned 4, I knew I had to come up with a way to give him a great birthday party while still being safe. The solution–a garage party! We pushed over the lawnmower and the camping gear, set up a beautiful dessert table and arranged the lawn chairs with lots of space between. We only invited a few of our adult friends, so it was easy to stay safe with the garage door open. Definitely a different setting than usual, but memorable and loads of fun nonetheless! And the New York City Theme turned out great, he loved those little paper taxi cabs…

Space 3rd Birthday Party for Baby K

Space 3rd Birthday Party for Baby K…My little boy turned 3, and we threw him a Space Theme Party that he loved!  He is absolutely intrigued with all things astronomical: planets, stars, nebulae, astronauts, rocket ships…we have a beautiful “Universe: The Definitive Visual Guide” coffee table book that he asks us to read him constantly, which is actually awesome because we get to learn, too!  It was just a small party because we are following all social distancing regulations, but our government has allowed families to join into cohorts so we got to have a pair of grandparents and an aunty in person, plus another pair of grandparents via the iPad!  It was the perfect way to celebrate our growing boy and he loved it…

Inflatable Pool 2nd Birthday Party for Baby K

Inflatable Pool Birthday Party…My little boy turned two this summer, and even though I just had Baby A I still wanted to throw him a big, fun party with lots of baking and décor (sleep be damned!).  Even though we live near the beach, I decided it was much easier to have a backyard inflatable pool party than try to pack everybody and everything up, and it turned out perfect.  We celebrated Baby K turning two, but also my friends and family got to meet sweet newborn Baby A…

Freak Show Circus Theme First Birthday for Baby K

Freak Show Circus Theme First Birthday……

My Baby Boy recently turned one and while I was drawn to the adorable circus and carnival themed parties I saw online, they just lacked that pizzazz I wanted for my birthday boy.  Especially because I had to live up to the Great Gatsby Themed First Birthday we threw for his big sister!  I knew I wanted something masculine yet cute, but also unique and maybe even a bit edgy.  I brainstormed our favorite travel locations and my mind was instantly drawn to Coney Island with its delicious hot dogs and ice cream and, of course, the Barnum & Bailey Greatest Show on Earth.  And thus was born Baby K’s Freak Show Circus themed first birthday party…
