Keeping it Simple

January 4, 2016 in Family / For Babies + Kids

For those of you who know me, know that I’m pretty simple. I dress simple, I laugh at simple things, and am always trying new ways to simplify my life. So when it came to my child’s birthday, I secretly dreaded it because everything on Pinterest was the farthest FROM simple.(if you want to see the Pinterest disaster of last year’s cake smash click HERE)

Also — Is it just me, or does anyone else feel like parties have changed over the years? What happened to “Don’t Eat Pete” and “Pin The Tail on the Donkey”?!

I’m all for making beautiful parties. I love throwing themed parties, and showers can be so fun when you go all out. But I’m also all for the simpleness of a fun day out and the company of great friends and family. So when we went to the aquarium and had a few cupcakes it was perfect for this mom and perfect for those two year old little eyes. He was in heaven and to me that’s all that mattered.

    This looks so fun! Happy birthday to your little man!! Way to keep it simple and stress-free! Kids really don’t care! If we’re being honest, we’re throwing parties for ourselves 🙂

    ^^That’s so true! Those extravagant parties are more for the parents, aren’t they?

    Looks like a great time! I did big homemade things for my oldest for his first two years, then wised up after my two younger sons were born. 😉 Now we do things like pick out a store-made cake and take it to a playground with some friends. Way easier, and just as fun for the birthday kids.

      haha! it’s so true. And I’m all for that, if they have fun what else matters?

    So sweet! I agree with you – sometimes the big parties forget who they are really about. The cupcakes are adorable!
