Birthday Party

So we finally decided which theme to go with and how we would do the party. I know, it's still way early to even be thinking about this, but I can't help it. I'm a planner. So, we went back to our original theme, but will be changing a few things about some of the party supplies.

I love the colors of it. It's so bright and cheery! Just like Leala... This really does fit her..

And we will actually consider buying a lot of the supplies this month! What? 5 months in advance? Yup, you heard me right! I am completely insane.. I know! No, but really, we found great coupons for Party City (search for printable party city coupons!) and it's too good of a deal to pass up.. I've never seen them have such big coupons! I am soooo excited!

I'm sure you guys will hear more about it as we go! Oh and as I think of something that is worth sharing about my tips to get things cheaper, I'll share. One thing I can think of, is to go ahead and buy some solid plates to mix in with your patterned plates, to save on cost. Of course, make sure that they match your theme.. Oh and I NEVER buy the themed streamers... NEVER... I think solid colored ones look better anyway!

I don't think you are crazy. i think you are smart. I used to plan my kids a year in advance if we found sale items for a certain theme. Less crunch planning. That theme is very cute. Good choice. Love the colors.
