Party Planning and Menu Plan Monday 2/18

Leave a comment

My big boy is turning three next month!  Where the hell did the time go?

We discussed what type of birthday party he wanted and he decided on a Superhero theme.

The other day I came home and he was chattering on and said “Star Wars birffday party.”

To which I replied “Star Wars?  I thought you wanted a Superhero birthday!”  Ian said “Oh yeah.  Superhero birfday party. BEST PARTY EVA!”


I have been pinning ideas on my Pinterest board for the party and have been thinking about things, but I hadn’t really started to do anything yet.  Then last week I got an evite from my cousin for her daughter’s birthday (Ian and her daughter were born only a week apart) and I realized ‘HOLY CRAP! I have to send out invitations soon!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!’

I had an idea for the invitations and wanted to take some pictures of him, he of course didn’t want to cooperate.  Since he wouldn’t do as I wished, I would have to use some pictures I already had to make his invitations.  This weekend I worked on them and I am pretty pleased with the results.


Of course I am not going to show you yet.

Here are some of the pictures I took, instead of the ones I wanted to for his invitation.
