Also, I have wonderful memories of the fabulous parties my mom put together for me as a child.
At the top of the list are...
a play at a local children's theater followed by pizza and cake,
an egg hunt/ cookie decorating party when my birthday was close to Easter,
a 50's party where we rented a jukebox and made the carport a dance floor
a surprise lunch at the country club with a huge centerpiece of yellow roses when I turned 18!
I could go on. (Thanks for the memories, Mama!)
Birthdays are special and worth all the trouble.
For Laurie's party....after much agonizing over a theme, we came to an agreement and settled on an art party, or rather a P"ART"Y, which was perfect for a cold, unpredictable January day.
The girls painted flowers on canvases, ate lunch, and cake. The end.
The supplies are all from my beloved AMAZON.

I (WE) truly had so much fun with this party.
