Brewer’s 7th Birthday
this year i went much simpler than usual and the party is exactly what a birthday party should be. it went very well
food: apples and peanut butter. m&m’s, pizza and homemade lemonade
cake: blue velvet cupcakes
game: silly string attack on villains and batman hole punch
favor: batman pez and silly bands
i spent the last several months collecting coffee bottles and cursed them as i got all the sticky off. I also picked up many packs of reusable straws from Target and Dollar General (i’m obsessed with these straws). i stole some images off of the internet and made some POW batman cupcake toppers with bamboo picks from the dollar tree and a hot glue gun. (said glue gun was left on for HOURS after i was finished. oops)
for one of the “games”, I made a hole punch sheet out of some thin paper. there was no actual point to it, but the kids enjoyed it…well, besides my cousin’s daughter who accidentally punched the pole it was attached to. we might have laughed inappropriately!
my brother in law, who humors me with printing projects WAY more than he deserves, printed posters of batman villains. they were stapled to the fence and attacked by $25 worth of silly string from the dollar tree. I lucked out with 10 cent batman silly bands (don’t even think kids like them anymore and i KNOW parents don’t) and $1.50 batman Pez at walmart for the favors. the party was short and sweet, the weather felt great because of the tropical storm off the coast and brewer got some great gifts and enjoyed his day with amazing family and friends!!!
