For the past six years, we’ve had the grandparents over for dinner and ate cake to celebrate my son’s birthday. Lame? The truth is, we are not “party people.” This year, though, we wanted to make his 6th birthday the best EVER so we decided that we would throw him a party. I asked the birthday boy to choose a theme for his party since “themed parties” are IN now. Of course, he went with a Minecraft party. I didn’t complain (too much) though. I knew if it weren’t Minecraft he would have asked for a Halo party. I don’t think any of his little friends even know what Halo is. Plus a Minecraft party sounded easy enough! Or So I thought.
Never really thrown a kid’s birthday party before so I took to the internet (a.k.a Pinterest) for help. After a few minutes (HOURS), I felt…OVERWHELMED! But at the same time, excited!! So many ideas, so little time! I wanted to do it ALL!!! Finally, I picked a few ideas, and the end results were PRETTY awesome (for a first). I was worried that the kids wouldn’t have anything to do, but they all had so much fun, and the adults did too. Plus the food was great.
There was a lot of yummy snacks for the kiddos and the adults. My sister baked the cake, and we even had blue jello for the Minecraft water.
I’m glad we decided to have a Minecraft party for this cutie. He was such a good kid.
