Elly had a strawberry themed birthday party this year. I got the invites and lots of printables for the party from Dimpleprints on Etsy. I highly recommend their stuff, it’s adorable, afforable and the gal is great to work with! As usual I was pretty gung ho about the party. Now that I’m not teaching it feels great to have a place to pour some creative energy. We’ll see how long my kids let me do all this for them. Jamie is hoping not for long since he becomes ‘day of party last minute errand assistant’. A job he really dislikes. This year one of his tasks was to go to an ice cream shop to ask for 12 little spoons. I really wanted those spoons so he did it…twice. The first time he accidentally threw them away. Now if that isn’t love I don’t know what is.
Some party details and fun in pictures:
I especially loved this year’s party because Elly got to celebrate with her little friends. It was sweet seeing how happy they all were and it made me realize I do miss the part of teaching where you spend time planning activities and lessons then get to see the kids really enjoying the hands on fun.
Feel free to leave theme suggestions for Elly’s next party, but please don’t be offended when I choose a different theme, I admittedly have control issues ;o).
