Here’s another quick celebration idea for you! What kid (or adult for that matter) wouldn’t love to have a cake with a fun DIY cake topper, in the form of a balloon, set down in front of them?! It’s super simple to put together but will absolutely cause smiles and giggles.
My youngest son has a birthday just a few days after Christmas. In a way it’s good because it forces me to get the holidays wrapped up, the decorations put a way and that huge mound of gifts sorted out. But then it’s a rush to get things ready to celebrate him. We usually do a family dinner on the actual birthday and a party when we can fit it in around the family’s holiday schedule. While the party is a little more detailed in the decorations department, the family dinner is much more casual. This DIY table runner is a great birthday idea for creating a little fuss over the guest of honor without creating a ton of more work for yourself.
My birthday is this weekend!! Yeah!! I have no real plans at this point aside from a date night with my hubby. This year doesn’t feel like it requires a crazy big celebration. It does however, require a pedicure. Here are some birthday gift ideas you all can buy for me.
Birthday Gift Ideas
A clutch that screams my name . a new sunbrella to keep me shady . cool shoes for my feet . this super fun picnic basket/box . it’s time to start working on my summer wardrobe and this dress should be part of that . and this dress – I wear the heck out my other Novella Royale pieces and I love this print . and this fantastic gold tray wants to be in my house.
(You may notice that the link for the shoes is different from the shoe shown. My husband explained that they change out their selection frequently. And I’m too lazy to redo my collage. And in fact I like the shoes in the link even better.)
See last year’s birthday post here. It’s insightful. I promise.
