So da Boo Boo’s first birthday is just around the corner.
Tears just from typing that.
5 days old vs. 324 days old!
Anyway, you know that I have to theme up his big party.
It’s a sickness. Themes.
Know what else is a sickness? Pinterest.
With less than a month away from the party, I’m starting to panic. I have boards pinned, materials purchased, and ideas a-flowin’. This seems to be my life lately. Lots of ideas and #FAIL on the follow through. (Ask my husband how many lists I keep talking about writing. I need to write a list of the lists that I need to write!)
Time is running short. But hey, at least someone is running.
The theme has long been chosen, though. “Time Flies” Cause shoot, doesn’t it?! Max isn’t even your kid and YOU can’t believe his oldness!
With the theme will come mostly airplanes, with a few hot air balloons, kites, and helicopters thrown in as decor, crafts for the kids, and labeling inspiration. You’d think it would be easy to find these items at craft stores. Ya know – airplanes and kids. Classic theme, right? Yeah. Dead.Wrong. You know what IS easy to find as a kid’s party theme? MUSTACHES.
I’m sorry. I never understood the whole mustache craze. Especially for kids. I don’t get it. I just don’t.
Please – EXPLAIN IT TO ME! Enlighten me. Sell me on facial hair as cute for kids. For a kid’s birthday party theme, nonetheless. I mean, lip hair is sooooo cute – right?!
One thing I cannot deny is a mustache pacifier. I mean, Max does NOT have one. But listen, I do still have a uterus.
I found this website, complete with a blog about babies and mustaches (what? talk about a niche!). But seriously, these ARE cute.
Max still isn’t getting one.
And for the record – I don’t get the mustache phenomenon for adults either. (Other than for Movember.) There, I said it!
In answering my own question – AIRPLANES over mustaches all.day.long!!!
First birthday party tips, suggestions, must-dos, do-not-forgets? Awesome “Time Flies” ideas that you HAVE to share?
First birthday. [Ridiculously pathetic sigh.] Excuse me while I dry my tears…again.
p.s. Hobby Lobby – I love and hate you, equally. As in, you are a major time-suck and I can’t wait to waste time with you again soon!
p.p.s. Yes, one of Max’s nicknames is “Boo Boo.” It wasn’t intended and there is not a “Honey” in sight!
