Of course I love me some Pinterest when it comes to writing inspiration, but I love it even more when it comes to party inspiration. I was so afraid that Jack’s first birthday party would be worthy of the Pinterest Fail blog, but it turned out surprisingly pretty! Thanks, Pinterest! I could never come up with all these decorative elements and food ideas on my own. We had crockpot hot chocolate with a marshmallow bar, crockpot hot cider, pumpkin-shaped sandwiches, cute cupcakes, a burlap banner, a Dr. Seuss Happy Birthday to You! guest book–even the classic mason jars with jute bows tied on them… basically, I did all of Pinterest. Behold my son’s adorable party:
His actual birthday is on Wednesday, and I’m so worn out from all of this stuff that he’ll probably get a pat on the back and maybe some blueberry pancakes if he’s lucky, lol.
