The last time we decorated and did a little get together for my daughter’s birthday was on her 1st birthday. Now that she was turning 5 (still asking myself where all these years went!), I decided to do something special to make it memorable. And I’m so glad I did!
I love party planning but I’m guilty of also being very last minute! It’s just so hard to make time for it with work and everything else you have to do in the evenings and on the weekends. I started planning for this little birthday on the Wednesday of my one-week March Break, and hosted the little birthday family get-together on Saturday (3 days later).
It was doable in the end because I had a very simple vision for the party. I’m big on keeping things simple and I really beleive that it’s possible to have an elegant & modern party without doing too much. I always go with the “less is more” concept. The items I purchased were mostly from Dollarama & Party City.
I realized later that I didn’t take any pictures with the final cake set-up. It was already evening time by the time we got the cake. The guests and other kids had also arrived and things got a little chaotic, as they do. So I just didn’t get a chance!
Well, sharing the pictures that I do have and hoping this can give you an idea if you’re looking for something simple to do for a party you’re planning 🙂
