Last Saturday we took a drive to NY to celebrate Maddox’s 4th birthday. You remember him, don’t you? The cutest little boy ever??
The party’s theme was ‘Mickey Mouse’ this year, so naturally the colors were mostly red, black and white with some yellow thrown in for some pop.
Maddox couldn’t be more different than his older brother Mikey. He was very explicit about not wanting toys for his birthday…just ‘cool clothes’. As you can see, he’s one cool kid, and apparently, he knows it.
Maddox’s mom Michelle is in her element when she gives a party. She leaves no detail to chance, and spends weeks planning the theme and executing it to perfection. Luckily, in spite of some light rain early on, it turned out to be a nice day so all her hard work didn’t go to waste.
What’s a party without ‘milk shots’?
Or some Margarita’s for the ‘old kids’?
She even put labels on the water bottles!
Some ‘oreo’ cookies in red and black. I didn’t have any, but they look fabulous!
When I was little and had a birthday party, we had cake and pin the tail on the donkey for entertainment. That’s pretty much it. At least that’s all I remember. Things have gotten so much more elaborate these days, but for someone who has a creative streak like Michelle, that’s a good thing! For some of us, a call to the bakery is about as creative as we get ;).
Did you have birthday parties when you were little? What about now that you’re older? How do you celebrate your special day?
