Literally. I have a first birthday party to throw Saturday, and I'm asking for favors from you lovely readers :) (Ba-dum-cha!)
OK, bad jokes aside, help!
Saturday is Ava's birthday party. Now that we're through the craziness of the holidays and into the new year, we're going to do it up right and celebrate with friends and our makeshift family, as well as my FIL. I'm planning to steal the lovely, crafty Tiffany's idea for cake balls to serve/decorate with and maybe put in party favor bags, but what on Earth else can I give as party favors? Help! Are these even standard, need-to-have things? There will be perhaps 6-7 kids at the party, ranging in age from nearly 1-nearly 8. Eek!
Also, what are cute owl decorations? I have a tablecloth, centerpiece, balloons, streamers, a personalized banner, the works! But what else could I do that could stand out?
Lastly, anyone know where on Earth I can take balloons to be filled up? Should I rely on the kids playing and adults just hanging out talking, or do I need organized activities? Holy moly, I've been procrastinating!!
Taking all suggestions! I can throw a mean kegger, but I'm apparently an amateur in the world of children's birthday parties!
