Vincent’s fourth birthday is less than a month away, which seems crazy. He’s growing up so fast. When I asked him what kind of party he wanted, he said he wanted colored balloons. So, I took that theme to Pinterest to get inspired. I found rainbow, balloon and sprinkle ideas galore.
Spelling out FOUR with cheap letters from the craft store and tying balloons is a fun welcome.
Maybe I’ll add a balloon wreath for extra pizzazz.
A balloon banner would also be a really cheap decoration.
For the dining room, a balloon and tissue paper pom-pom hanging bouquet is fun.
Sprinkles are another way I plan to add pops of color. Sprinkles around the rims of chocolate milk? I’ll take that.
Cake pops decked out in sprinkles and drizzled icing. Cute, but might be too difficult for a non-baker such as myself.
Oreo pops, however, seem right up my alley.
Zig zag paper streamers in a variety of colors is an easy (maybe V can help?) decoration.
Fresh fruit skewers are a simple, healthy and pretty party food.
I’ve seen a few cakes I think would be fitting for a four-year old and adults. Maybe a polka dot cake?
Or maybe a candy cake?
If we knew more little kids, recycled crayons could be a cute party favor.
That’s the direction we’re headed. Invitations will be sent out soon. As soon as our guests receive them, we’ll share the details.
Do you choose the party theme, or let your kids? What are your favorite themes? Your kids? Any party planning tips or tricks? Favorite cake recipe?
