Never to early to start planning a party in my book...If I had more time and money and hands, I am pretty sure I would have reason to celebrate at least a few times a week...
So, with both my boys having December birthdays I try and get their part-planning done early - on to control my stress level!
While I was at this great paper shop a few weeks ago downtown Chicago, I found the cutest invites that were primary colored polka dots and stripes, they open and hold a picture of your birthday boy/girl...I wasn't sure how I'd use them but I knew they would be cute for Christian's 3rd Birthday, so I bought them...
And, I think I have found my theme!...A donut party! It will work great w/ the circles, who doesn't like donuts and it happens to be one of Christian's foods...go figure. I also love to host parties for kids early in the day...they are happy, not ao tired, no one is napping and typically it is just easier. I thought it would be fun to have all the kids (and parents too if they wanted) to wear their PJs and then in lieu of presents, I would ask them to bring a new pair of PJs and or book to benefit the Pajama Project as seen here: http://www.pajamaprogram.org/ - .
This party is my inspiration as featured by Christi at P is for Party her site is filled with cute ideas!
