Pirate & Pixie Birthday Party

My plan was to have this post up two weeks ago…

But if you follow me on social media, you know that we just bought a house (WOO HOO!), but we had two weeks to be out of our rental and move and clean everything (Boo!!).

This year for the girl’s birthday I really wanted to keep it simple, unlike THIS one…or THIS one…or THIS one…

But I have this problem where I like to plan parties for little kids who won’t remember it and spend a lot of money and make it cute…I blame pinterest. So this year I halved-it. I did some cute decor, a few games, but I still kept it simple and had the party at the park and let the kids run wild on the play ground.

I have to say, it felt good to take it easy and not put TOO much stress into it! I think next year will be even more relaxed!

After all…I should save my stress (and money) for the three weddings I’ll have to plan in the years down the road right??

The girls really wanted a Tinkerbell Party this year, but they have a lot of boy friends and I figured fairy wings and wands weren’t really up their ally. So we changed it to Pirate and Pixie! I loved this theme so much, you really could have so much fun with it!
