Affording birthday's can be a challenge for some parents. Every parent want's their child's first birthday to be amazing. I know I definately do! So I was wondering what affordable birthday ideas other Mommies have? What did you do for your childs first? What are your plans for his/her #1 birthday party? I would love to hear all about it.


Also...


What are some solutions to a "bad weather" birthday?

or...


Quick solutions to party boo-boos and keeping your cool

(cake being dropped) (no one shows) (someone gets hurt)



I can't wait to hear your responses!

Their birthday will be amazing because you make it amazing. Don't stress their party. They are turning one. I had my daughters at a community center. Pink and brown table clothes balloons and 3 cakes. 1 was cupcakes that looked like a monkey. One was a princess cake and the other was the cake for her to dig her face in. She won't remember it. Spend more money on toys then making everything look fabulous. The toys are what they will remember and make more days then just one amazing. I hope your lo enjoys their bday! :) don't stress it!

Dd we had a bbq at home with close friends and family. Low key, didn't need to decorate, lots of fun and relaxing.

Ds we had a picnic at a local park. Again didn't need to decorate and was fairly low key and lots of fun.

We had a picnic at a park with family and friends. We didn't really do decorations just a bunch of food.
