My mom and dad throw great, extravagant parties, but that’s just not my gift. Simplicity is my gift. Also, waiting until the last minute is a new gift I inherited. I birthed it right along with my children.
Back on topic, Jenna. Haley’s post really spoke to me, and I have kept it in mind while party planning. It’s not that I wouldn’t LOVE to throw a huge, expensive bash, but simple is really more my style and stress level.
Cake: chocolate/chocolate cake, construction toys for topper, candy corn
Decorations: yellow, black and orange balloons, streamers, tableware, caution tape, construction toys from around the house
Snacks: use construction toys to hold snacks
Tip: keep decorations focused in one area for the biggest effect; spreading it around the whole house will just make it feel sparse
