Rockin’ Another Birthday

At our house, September is a busy month. Including the celebration of a special little boy’s birthday! Once I figure out a theme, I immediately reach out to my friend, Alexis, who always creates the perfect invitation and gift tag.

This birthday is all about little boys climbing the walls. 

If you’re looking for ideas for a kid’s birthday party, here are a few others I’ve done.

Life’s a party….make it fun!

Elements of a Party

What’s the formula for a great kids birthday party? Theme + planning = Chemistry!

At least that’s what I’m counting on for my son’s Mad Science Party this weekend. He’s turning 9 and thinks he wants to be a scientist when he grows up, so with the help of Alexis Murphy of Jac’olyn Murphy, I’ve started the party prep.

After working with Alexis on various ideas, she put together stickers for the favor bags, wrappers for the water bottles, a sign for the Cake and stickers for real petri dishes that I’ll fill with candy. She made up “elements” from the periodic table and used the actual age and date of his birthday to customize them. 
 The perfect candy for budding scientist? Nerds and Smarties, of course!
 “Syringe” pens for the favor bags
Each guest will also receive a real lab coat & safety glasses for the experiments so they can get messy.

Next week, I’ll share photos of the actual party and how it all comes together. Hopefully, I’ve got the formula right!
