I would like to take this time to say a very Happy Birthday to my sweet Wyatt! He is FIVE! Wow I cannot even believe I am typing that right now! I thought maybe typing it would be less weird than saying it but, nope it’s just as strange to use the big FIVE before his name here!
Since I just had baby & am like crazy busy this one kind of snuck up on me…GASP you say! Yeah yeah yeah It happens. So I had to pull something together quick, and on the cheap! Thanks to the inspiration from a scrap of fabric which later became the theme to my party I was able to do a totally DIY Boys Birthday party ! Here’s what we did!
Of course we started out with a Birthday Breakfast complete with candles and singing which is customary in our home.
I had invited several of his friends via Facebook & email! Thank God for this digital time we live in. I would have so failed as a mom that had to mail out everything via post mark. That would take real planning.
Any way we planned it at the park where I simply had cupcakes & games and candy! DONE!
Everything pictured I made from what I had around the house! A fabric banner with his name, decorations, & I reused streamers & balloons from other parties. I put candy in my canisters I keep on my counter & just made cute signs, An ice tub with juice boxes just decorated up, & my favorite thing…My hubys tools for center pieces! I picked several colors and mashed them together so I could use more of what I had. I recommend this so you can be more flexible with your decorations!
Wyatt told me it was the best birthday EVER!
See they don’t need much. I loved this party. It was super easy to put together, so I was less stressed and able to enjoy the party more. I had fun doing it & I can only judge by the look on his face in some of these pics that Wyatt did too!
*If you would like more detailed instructions on anything you see here I would be happy to post them, just leave a comment as to which ones you need!
Happy Juggling Mamas
