I can’t believe it’s already time for birthday party #7 for C-man. Last year was the year he “outgrew” a Disney themed party and went with a football theme. This year, Minecraft won out. I don’t even get what Minecraft is all about! So we are in full planning mode for our party next month. The invites are finished and pinning has begun for the rest of the party! Stay tuned for more!!
My youngest son, Big E, will turn 2 in a few weeks. Two? Really? So to celebrate, we will be having a Dumbo themed party at our house. I have found lots of ideas on Pinterest for decorations, invitations, cakes, clothes, and food, but can’t find a lot of ideas for games and activities for 2 year olds!
So far, we are planning on lots of large bouncy balls from the bins at Wal Mart, our swing set in the back yard, a toddler size bouncy house, tunnels to crawl through, sidewalk chalk and lots of bubbles. In case of rain, we’ll stay inside with Dumbo playing on the TV and let them act like fools! 🙂
I love a good party! Especially if it’s Disney Themed! We have had our share of Disney parties: Toy Story, Jake and the Neverland Pirates, Star Wars, Finding Nemo and our upcoming #DisneySide (Magic Kingdom themed) party. I’m a traditionalist. I like to print my invitations and mail them to my guests. I remember how excited I was as a kid to get mail. My boys still get excited when they get mail. I think children like getting mail out of the mailbox. An email- not so much!
Even being a “traditionalist” when it comes to invitations, I did go to the Punchbowl site and started designing my own digital invitations for a fictitious party. I can say the experience was great! It was easy to navigate the web site, choose my design and enter the details of the party.

- Is there a gift registry to link to?
- What are the invitation response options- number attending, can the invite be forwarded, etc?
- Do you want to link it to social media?
