Having gotten a lot of kid birthdays on our site, I thought I'd write about some of my favorite party favor ideas on Etsy.
Recycled number crayons from ivylanedesigns. I thought these were cute, original, and not too expensive at $20 for 30 crayons.
How cute are these cake favor boxes from Paper Cakes by Rachel. They're so cute I want to eat them.
Here are some other cute ones. (These, however, I don't want to eat.)
I love Bar and Bat Mitzvahs. I love them because they're like weddings, only a lot of times, more festive. You can go over the top with a Bar or Bat Mitzvah and nobody cares because it's a party for a 13-year-old!
So to get some insight into what's hip and cool right now in the world of Bar and Bat Mitzvahs, I talked to two event planners -- Terri Bergman on the east coast and Carol Rosen on the west coast -- who plan a lot of them.
The party went off without a hitch!! Lainey had a great time, we had a great time. It was a lot of work, but well worth it. Here are some pictures to show you what it looked like.
Setting up before the party. Everything was in Lainey's favorite colors -- pink and purple. The day couldn't have been more beautiful and if you look in the distance, you'll see the ocean.
So Lainey's 3rd birthday party is this Sunday and I'm excited. Even for this "nothing special" party at a local park for 25 kids and 35 adults, it's amazing the number of lists I have going, and the amount of time I've spent planning instead of blogging.
Now that it's all set, here are the details... For the kids, I've ordered pizzas from Rosti, a tasty local Italian joint up the street, and for the adults, as I mentioned earlier, I ordered the most awesome 24 inch sandwiches from Bay Cities Deli. Delish! To go with the sandwiches, I bought a case of Kettle Chips on Amazon. I'm addicted to Amazon Prime.
I think I'm in a nostalgic mood. Today, my two-year-old daughter, pretending to be a doctor, gave me a shot, then offered me a pretend lollipop to make me feel better. Remember when all it took to make you feel better was a lollipop?
Well, I found this cool site called the Sweet Lollipop Shop that makes custom lollipops for all occasions and I thought what a great, inexpensive party favor idea. They've got birthday and holiday pops, wedding and shower pops, and lots of pops for kids, of course. Here are a few of my favorites...
