Thanks to Pinterest and social media, moms everywhere seem more determined than ever to throw their kids the perfect birthday party (before they can even speak a word). There are also extravagant birthdays that take place). It’s just that these parties look like large parties rather than intimate gatherings, not to mention the cost behind it all. Anyway, who are we throwing these parties for? Facebook? At your child’s birthday party, invite only family members and keep it as discreet as possible. And what do you know? It was the best party move since college.
Grandma doesn’t want to fight to celebrate her grandson’s birthday when he is out with his friends.
Children’s birthdays have never been so stressful. I always ask myself every time I see beautiful parties littered across my feed. I let the kids choose what they like and then start plastering the whole house.It’s horrible and my kids love it every second (this year it’s all pajama mask letter). When it comes to food, you won’t spend stressful hours in the kitchen preparing appetizers, entrees, sides and desserts. order a pizza The only major effort I’ve made is picking up the phone and placing an order. There’s a reason the guest list is small.
When it comes to children’s birthday parties, we’ve always made it a priority to limit the guest list to family members—grandparents, aunts, and uncles are invited, but that’s it. Being with family is hard enough. I want to give my family the gift of spending special, uninterrupted time with my kids. Sometimes he doesn’t want to fight to celebrate his grandson’s birthday. He sees his friends every day at school, but not his close family.
It always works this way without any extra work or worries. My kids and their little cousins are having a blast inside and outside the house. Laughter and meows bounce off the walls and between the frighteningly wonderful decorations. Munch on pizza, stuff cake in your mouth, and open presents. Oh, that brings me to another perk of the small guest list: fewer gifts. Or get 12 presents that definitely make me crazy.
If you love creating Pinterest-worthy birthday parties, that’s great. Keep it up so you can see pretty pics on your social media feeds. But if they’re stressing you out, stop. Go to Party City, pick some nasty decor, and order a pizza. Trust me, it’s the easiest thing you’ve ever done for your kids and they love it You’ll love it just as much. Now you can enjoy your child’s birthday party the way it should be. Sit back, relax and watch your family create memories together.
