Watery Blue Birthday
Going blue for my birthday boy wasn't difficult, since I'm personally a huge fan of the color. What was difficult was when my son first requested a zu zu pet party, but thankfully must have seen my eye twitching and changed his mind. I always attempt to give my boys an interesting and fun birthday without going over the top. Being that I'm a planner, that can be hard at times. I've learned from my oldest, though, that all they really wanna do is run around and have fun with their friends at this age. A water themed event was the way to go for a hot Sunday afternoon and our sweet 4 year old birthday boy was more interested in playing in the sprinklers, and of course chasing everyone down with the hose was a perk too.
Needless to say I'm not a cake creator but I do my best. This year the request was for a marble cake since his older brother had enjoyed one the prior month. It must have been good since there wasn't a single piece left after 30 minutes.
Tip: Offer a special area for kids to grab their drinks & treats.
