Surprise, Brett Wants A Party!

So, being the great mom that I am, I was not planning on having a big party for my son's birthday on Sunday. Not because we don't have time, just because.  We are doing the Birthday Board all week and he loves being the center of attention.


apparently that is not enough.
He has his heart set on a party.

So, Put on Your Party Hats!
It's time to brainstorm.
Here are a few last minute ideas that I have collected off of (my newest love) Pinterest


I love this easy idea. Koolaide Ice Cubes added to Sprite!

And isn't this BRILLIANT!
A punch board made from poster board or cardboard and tissue paper.
We are definately doing this!

And I'm trying to find a way to do a version of this on our diningroom table.
I already had this idea in my head but it always helps to have a visual,
since this will probably be a "David" project.

I am considering using poster board to make a roadway around the diningroom...Not sure yet.

And I will be making a trip to Hobby Lobby shortly to get supplies for this yearly project. I just wish I had thought of this sooner. I can just imagine some of the answers that Mae would have given.
Maybe I'll just solidify that
Mom Of The Year Award
and make up a few answers  for her early years  :)

Of course, I'm planning on making a slew of cardboard road signs and maybe even making a traffic light. I have a few more ideas too but you'll have to come back another day to see those!  If you've got any good ideas for car themed parties, comment below! I can use all the help I can get with this last minute birthday bash.


  1. no good ideas, but I'm pretty good at eating cake! ;-)

  2. Seriously?! You're killing me smalls. Are you going to have it this Saturday? We won't be able to make it then. I know that Joe is getting excited for his birthday. Maybe we'll have to have a special day for him over Christmas break. :)


Your Comments Make My Day! I always look foward to reading them! Thanks!
