My little man just turned 4. Where oh where did the time go??? Since we were so lucky to be able to go to Disneyland this year for his big day, we kept the birthday party pretty low-key. I still wanted it to be fund and special though. He was turning the big four after all. I wrote out a BIG chalk birthday message for our friends to see when they walked up the driveway. Welcome, welcome everyone!
Our house isn’t layed out very well for parties so we decided to turn the garage into a super fun kid’s party game space. To cover up all those garage things, you know, the tools, camping equipment, rakes and shovels, tools boxes and what not we hung up blue plastic table cloths from the Dollar Tree. Such a cheap and easy solution. These faux walls looked festive and stayed put with just a little duct tape. We hung some colorful flag banners and filled the room with blue and yellow balloons. The kids pulled the pinata strings and played pin the nose on the clown. We set up a bowling game with the adorable Pottery Barn bowling set Noah got for Christmas and turned on the music for a kiddo dance party. Fun was had by all!
Our blue and yellow theme came from these cute Paul Frank plates and napkins from Target. Love Target!
I printed out Noah’s cute pic onto cardstock then cut them out and glued onto popsicle sticks for cupcake decorations. I know, I know, too cute! In keeping with our color theme, I used yellow cupcake papers and blue sprinkles on the icing. I also made some cupcakes for our gluten-free friends using Pamela’s yellow cake mix… surprisingly delicious! Just like pound cake. Even out gluten eaters ate them up!
After a yummy kid-friendly dinner of home-made mac and cheese including one for the adults with andouille sausage, everyone was full and happy. I think the birthday boy had a great day.
