Weekend Recap: Birthday Party Edition

Good Monday morning! I hope everyone is off to a great, and at least somewhat productive week so far. So as if there isn’t enough going on right now between working out of town for a portion of this week, taming two wild children, wedding planning, and school, of course we had to add a birthday party into the mix because JAYCE IS SIX TOMORROW, Y’ALL. 6. Seis. Sechs. Seks.

Throwing themed birthday parties is my thing, I love it. Every year I have Bake My Day make the boy’s cakes, and she knocks it out of the park each and every year. They are not only very reasonably priced (I would say comparable to Meijer or any other mediocre grocery store bakery) but with DOUBLE the quality and flavor.

When I had asked Jayce what kind of birthday party he wanted this year, he told me “camping”. That one had me stumped for a bit. Last  year he wanted a Lego themed birthday which was fairly easy for me to plan, and especially easy for me to have a cake made for. So, I did what I do best and I went on Pinterest, followed by a trip to my favorite site, Etsy.

What we ended up with was just the absolute greatest…

Everything was edible!
Don’t mind the dirty feet, they had been outside ALL DAY LONG.


The AWESOME banner that is hanging behind him was one of my favorite finds. It was from an awesome little shop on Etsy:


If you want a banner of your own, the banners can be found at this link!

Here are some of the cool gifts he got, and some of the amazing people that were in attendance to help us celebrate such a cool (almost) 6 year old.


Yeah the laser tag hasn’t stopped in our house….


Even letting his brother help (I’m almost positive Marek ISN’T picking his nose… 

Overall it was a great party. Rather low maintenance in comparison to the last 3 that I’ve helped with but that’s because I’m tired of having 50 guests over for our children’s birthday parties. No need to cook for that many people, and it always ends up with an excessive amount of gifts (which honestly I’m not even sure where we would put them).

Jayce and Marek both had a great time, and I was sleeping on the couch at 9:15pm on a Saturday night after cooking 6 large pizzas and heading the hostess role.

This week we have crazy schedules since I am out of town for 2 nights and 2 days due to work but we will make it.

Wishing everyone a happy week!

Until next time,
