Well, it is semi-official... We are going to have Maddox's birthday on July 3rd at our house.
I know we are shooting ourselves in the foot choosing a holiday weekend... I will probably end up with more cake and food than I need because most people will be out of town... but that's the risk with all July birthdays. It's a vacation month!
I think I am just going to roll with the theme of the weekend and do a red, white, and blue/ stars and stripes type of a party. I have some ideas floating inside my head andI think it will actually be really cute! I can't wait to put it together.
With that said, have to share some killer deals that I found at the Dollar Tree. (all $1 of course.) I was really excited and it got my wheels turning for cute decorating I am going to do. I want to go back and get about 10 flags to stake in the flower beds and where ever... Sparklers ties together with red, white, and blue ribbon- suck in the bucket... patriotic hats instead of birthday hats... I promise it will be adorable!
I got home and had to start googling ideas for invitations. It is going to be hard to top last year's invite, but I think the one I am making is going to be SUPER CUTE!! I found a Christmas card that I am going to change into a July 4th card. I will try and get to Hobby Lobby this week and get a sample made so I can perfect it before I actually have to mail them!
I know it is hard to tell where I am going with this (and it is not the greatest pic, since I took a picture if my computer screen with my phone) but I am going to make the front of the card a firecracker, and that thing to the right is going to be my "explosion"... It's all in my head- but I think it will work out!
But back to Dollar Tree: I felt like I hit a gold mine. Not only did I get some great things for the butter biscuit's party but I got him a few things for fun too. I got 2 sets of Mickey Mouse Club flash cards, a coloring book and crayons (both MMC) for a buck a piece! What a steal! I will go back! I love bargains!
...And Maddox loves to color, so everyone wins!
