Modern Bird Birthday Party Theme Cupcakes Balloons Party Favors

From my smug, summer birthday point of view,I used to feel a little sad for people with birthdays right around Christmas. Then I had a baby girl on January 7th. Now I just feel bad for the parents. OOPH it’s hard work to come screaming out of all of that Christmas merriment – and presents, food, preparation, clean up, organization, and a whopper of a nasty cold. Only to realize that we’re having lots of good friends over this weekend for a little birthday celebration. I’ve been madly trolling the internet all weekend to help get me in the right frame of mind.

I can’t help but continue with a loose birds theme for as long as I can. (I’m pretending I can prepare for the day she wants a – gasp – yo gabba gabba themed party, or worse yet, elmo?) And the best bird themed party I’ve seen by far is this gorgeous Modern Bird Birthday over at City Cradle Design. It makes me calmer looking at all the purty pictures. Until I crash back to reality and realize ours may be nothing like that if I don’t get my rear in gear! I’m off to buy a cake stand … right … now …

It’s so hard to keep both things in mind this time of year. Though I will say shopping for gifts is a breeze, I just let the floodgates open! Happy Birthday to F!

This party is beautiful. My son already wanted a character party at 2 (Thomas) so I had to suck it up but I found ways to make it bearable :) – hope to post about it soon. Happy New year!

I think if I was honest with myself Birdie would prefer a Curious George Birthday Party – and I just saw all the acoutrements at Party City today. But … she doesn’t know any better, yet!
Let me know what you did with your theme – can’t wait to see how you worked with it!
