I know. I tend to overdo it a bit (ahem, a lot) on birthdays, but it truly is fun for me to create and play. I know not all parents feel this way, but it is a way for me to flex my creative side.
This year was no different, and because I’m obsessed with plaid my son was given a pattern as a theme. Ha! I’m sure he’ll look back at these photos with a serious look of confusion. Screw Mickey, give me tartan!
I created some super cute paper invites to send out to family. Tip: this is how I keep the crazy to a minimum. There will be plenty of years where he’ll have friend parties. For now, just family for us.
