Last month, my oldest turned 5, which I thought was a momentous occasion and called for an extra special party (after all, this is the last year he can show his age with only one hand sniffle).
Our Jackson is a funny little guy with an affinity for geography (he was name all the states, point to them on the map, list the continents in order of size, point to each of them on the map, etc.), so my husband and I began brainstorming early on a geography themed birthday party and how to pull that off. After we sat down and thought about it, we realized it would actually be somewhat easy and inexpensive to pull off, so we began to design, scheme, and shop!
I am absolutely THRILLED with the way everything turned out with his party! I think we were able to do it for less than $150 (which is a lot for a kid’s party, yes, but we also had 30 kids in attendance which upped the cost of everything), but you could easily set a budget for less and stick to it.
My favorite part of party blog posts are the pictures, so without further ado, here are some of the deets from Jackson’s “Around the World in 1 Hour” 5th birthday party:
As you can see, the party was somewhat simple and easy to pull off, and I think it was enjoyed by both the kids and parents alike. We had such a great group of people over and I cannot wait to begin brainstorming Jackson’s next party! Stay tuned.
