{Real Parties} Shark Attack!

This is a fun summer theme for those kids with summer birthdays...shark attack!

Both of my boys were born in March so I love being able to help plan summer parties.

my neighbor had this great shark stuffed animal that we hung
at the entrance with some fish net

unfortunately I didn't get a shot of the shark watermelon until
after all the contents were devoured

Happy 6th birthday Justin!

The Perfect Party Favor

What is a party favor and when did party favors become so popular? As a party planner, I get this question often...

I think a party favor should be just a small token to your guest to show appreciation for their attendance at an event. Is it necessary? Absolutely not. With that said, I do believe it's a nice gesture. After all, your guests took the time out of their schedules and in some cases, brought a gift.

It's true party favors have probably gotten out of hand but here's a small token that can be tailored to suit almost any party theme:

{Party Tip Tuesday} Shop Your House

Party decorations don't have to be expensive. Before you head out to the party store, shop your house. You'll be amazed at what you have if you just think outside the box. This is especially true for children's character themed parties, if you or your child chose a character theme, more than likely he/she has those toys laying around so you may as well incorporate them in your party décor. Have fun with it!

{Real Parties} Camping Party

I know I just recently got around to posting my youngest son's 3rd birthday but here are the photos from his 4th birthday party.

He really wanted ANOTHER dino dig or as he put it...Jurassic Park, but we settled on a camping theme. Sadly, this will probably be one of the last years that I have input on choosing a theme.

Welcome to Camp JC:

I love unconventional invitations...I thought this theme
merited a Jiffy Pop invitation. Who doesn't love old
school Jiffy Pop!?!

My mom found these pie tins in bulk, it was a perfect addition
one of my favorite activities was the s'mores bar

Photo booth fun

Hope you enjoyed your stay at Camp JC!
