Lego Batman Birthday Bonanza!

by

As a mom of two young boys, the majority of my life involves Lego’s in some capacity.  It is because of this love of Lego’s that it came as no surprise to me when my five year requested a Lego Batman Birthday party.  Not just Batman, not just Lego’s, but BATMAN LEGO’S.  Since we live in Florida where the weather is great year round, we celebrated at a local park.  Parks are not only a affordable, but they keep the mess out of your house!  Additionally, I find that their playgrounds are usually all the entertainment we need.

The first order of business in planning a party for a five year old, is planning the games.  If you don’t have a way to keep the kids entertained then all your plans will be for nothing because chaos will take over.  Follow the standard K.I.S.S rule (Keep it simple stupid) for the best results.  I kept it about as simple as it could get with Lego play, time on the playground and an egg hunt.  I know, Easter eggs are not exactly the first game that comes to mind for a fall birthday party.  All I can say is that my five-year-old knows exactly what he wants and is not willing to compromise.  Anyone with a five year old will probably tell you the same!

Lego play took place in “Maddex’s Batcave”, aka a camping tent boasting a fun sign.  Inside the Batcave was an inflatable kiddie pool filled with Legos for kids to create and build.  The added bonus of the Lego Batcave is that it provided a shady place for kids to gather as guests arrived. Lego Batman Batcave

 

After a bit of pizza and snacks the kids were ready to get their crazies out!  We hiked over to the nearby playground to let the kids go nuts while the adults hid all of our blue Easter eggs around the shelter.  When the kids came back they were sent on an egg hunt with their customized goody bags.  The goody bags were a hit with kids and adults alike, and couldn’t have been easier to pull off.  All I had to do was peel the label off and stick it right on a black gift back.  The glory of these labels is that they will work on just about anything.  In fact, my older son used a leftover label on his shirt so he’d be fully festive.

Finally, it was time for cake.  This basic 8″ round cake was made to look like the bat symbol seen throughout the party.  Accompanying cupcakes were given a similar treatment with homemade cupcake toppers.Batman Birthday BonanzaLastly, you have to wash down your sweet bite with water from a stylish water bottle!  Water bottle labels are so simple and easy!  They are the perfect way to add the final punch to your decor, and I promise, they will always spark conversation.  These labels can be customized and purchased here.  DIY Lego Batman Birthday The final and most important tip for hosting your child’s birthday party is to ENJOY YOURSELF!  Sometimes the amount of work that goes into pulling a party off is just the thing that keeps you from enjoying your own shindig.  Let your guests help themselves and remember not to let the moment pass you by!

11 30th Birthday Party Favors For Adults

by

Turning 30? Don’t panic! Some of the most famous scientists, business men and women and political figures made the biggest waves in their 30s. More important then your impending life of success however is the fact that this important milestone is the perfect reason to host a party. And it’s just good manners to thank your guests for spending time with you to celebrate, but the kiddy loot bags won’t cut it for your crowd. Read on for some appropriate (and awesome!) ideas for grown up party favors for your 30th birthday:

Chocolate Liqueurs

These chocolate-infused liqueurs that you typically only find in your granny’s cabinet from 1993 can be a great party favor for adults. Send your guests home with personalized chocolates to give these easy favors an adorable upgrade.

“Hot Candies”

Thirty doesn’t mean you have to grow up and candies are a safe bet for birthday party favors no matter the age–especially with a grown up twist. Hand out cinnamon flavored candies with a “30 and Hot” label to give your guests a laugh.

Not down with a formal “loot bag”? Set up a sweets table by the door filled with 30 themed treats and kiss your 20s goodbye! Tag ’em with initialed labels, a big 3-0, or other special notes.

 

Create a Hangover Kit

If drinks are to be had at your 30th birthday party, your guests will appreciate a hangover kit for the next morning. Buy travel-sized bottles of Advil, water bottles, snacks, and hand them out in cute kraft paper bags.

Custom Wine Glasses

If you’re feeling a little crafty, give out wine glasses to your party guests with their own name lettered on them! Choose colors to match your party theme and even a hashtag to use for party photos. Every time your friends pull out the glass for a sip of wine, they’ll be reminded of the good times at your party. They’ll also be great conversation starters!

Mini Wine Bottles

Who doesn’t love being sent home with wine? Even better if you send your guests home with a personalized bottle with their name on it! They’ll feel truly special that you went out of your way to give them a personalized gift.

“30 Sucks!” Lollipops

Feeling a bit sour about turning 30? Make light of the situation with these funny “30 sucks” lollipops! These super simple party favors will give your guests a chuckle on their way out the door.

Sunglasses

Practical and fashionable! Your guests will love sporting these glasses on sunny days and remember the fun they had at your 30th birthday party.

S’mores Kit

Just because the kids weren’t invited to the party, doesn’t mean they shouldn’t get the treats. Adults with children often give their edible party loot bags directly to their kids, so why not give out party favors for that particular purpose? These s’mores kits are adorable for summer bonfires with the family or a BBQ-themed 30th!

Plants & Flowers

Turning 30 doesn’t exactly mean you’re over-the-hill, but it’s definitely a time in your life when growing plants and flowers is a totally acceptable thing to do. Give your guests a gift that keeps on giving (unless they forget to water it, of course). Totally eco-friendly, too!

Spa in a Jar

Gifts in a jar are all the rage right now. They’re fun to put together, customizable, and are a great way to use up those empty pasta sauce jars! These party favors are perfect for a 30th birthday party for ladies or even a bachelorette. You can customize the colors to fit the theme of your party, or even add a mini adult beverage to the gift to make it a little more grown up.

Coffee

Coffee is another favorite beverage among adults and a crowd pleasing party favor. Whether you send your guests home with coffee beans or grounds in a bag with a custom label, or even a mug, every cup of joe will flood back memories from your party.

Purple Birthday Bash

Purple is a girly girl color, right? Every little princess adores purple shades so if you have one with a birthday coming up, you might consider throwing a real purple birthday bash with a couple of guidelines from us. This party is easy to plan and it’ll keep you on the budget. The most important thing is to be creative and think like a princess. To set up the venue, you’ll need a big table with white or/and purple tablecloth. Perhaps it would be best to go with the white one as it’ll open up the space, and then just add purple elements to keep up with the theme. Purple napkins, balloons, paper butterflies, and a huge “Happy birthday” banner will all create the perfect setting. You can purchase purple or violet cups and plates and have all the guests dress in the same color. Can’t get enough of purple!
