As I peruse the internet for birthday party ideas for my little loves and showers for my fantabulous friends, I am simply amazed at the amount of talent that is "out there" in the world! I noticed that most of the blogs were from large cities here and there. I sort of felt like I needed to represent the small{ish} towns out there, like mine. Mostly because I am surrounded by a mega-talented group of friends! This blog is dedicated to all of them and to all of you. For the love of a sweet soiree!

Thinking Outside of the {Party} Box!!

These two parties epitomize what I mean when I talk about thinking outside of the box. When kids {especially boys} are old enough to have a strong opinion about their birthday parties, those of us who love to plan parties cringe a little inside. Only because they want such generic themes that come with cheesy decorations. HOWEVER, there is a way to have the best of both worlds without having to buy the "party in a box"! I love what these two moms have done to make two popular themes, "Batman" and "Cars", super fun and UNIQUE!!! This is my friend, Angie, who is a Martha-in-training, which bascially means she can do anything on the homefront. Her son is a die-hard Batman lover. He was overjoyed when his mama put this shindig together for him! And Angie looked like a rockstar for vamping up the comic book theme! Dipped marshmellows

Logo cupcakes

{my fave} popcorn cones

And for an activity, the kids all got their own sand pail to dig in the sand box!

And no party is like my friend, Brittney, who has endless creative juices flowing thru her body {Uh, did I mention that BOTH of these women are VERY pregnant?}! She took the most beloved boy cartoon of all time {CARS} and made it spectacular!!!

Yep. You are seeing this correctly. That's a REAL life Lightning McQueen.

I thought this was creative--she handed out little wallets with a stash of "cash" and the kids could "buy" their snacks! Fabulous! Kids love to do that!

The kids all got to sit and watch the movie on the big screen! Love this! I maybe doing something similar for my son's 4th party since he is OBSESSED with watching movies!

BRAVO! To these two mamas for showing us the way it should and can be done!!
