Elijah turns 4...the cake and favors.
I wanted to send a fun bag of favors home with the kids, but, I didn't want to fill it with cheap plastic toys or junk. I didn't decide what I wanted to do until a few days before the party, but, fortunately I had everything on hand that I needed once I figured it out...
post over at the Artful Parent. I thought the glitter and essential oil ideas to be brilliant. Then I formed 8 snowmen out of the dough and placed them into mason jars...another nice way to package things and not use plastic.
I enjoyed putting together this little party for my boy. He loved it and is already plotting next year...we'll see, birthdays growing up were always just a small family affair except for one or two birthdays where we had a party for friends. I want to celebrate my children's birthdays certainly, but, I don't think I'll be doing a party every year. Although, I had must admit, I had a great deal of fun doing all this.
