WOW! What a weekend! As any parent can attest to planning a birthday party for your little on can be daunting. Well try planning one while you are studying for your board exams (overdue post alert!)📚. Then imagine that Hurricane Florence 🌪comes calling into town. Next imagine that your boyfriend dumps you 4 days before the party 💔and you will have a constellation for failure but THANK GOD it was a success!
First let me say that my little one LOVES Wallykazam! He will watch episodes over and over and over and over and over and over and over...again 🤦🏾♀️. So trying to plan a party of anything but Wallykazam was just not going to happen. I have to say I'm pretty disappointed in Nick Jr for several reasons: 1) They aren't making any new Wallykazam shows 😡2) There aren't a lot of promotional birthday items for purchase to really throw a great party😤. 3) They aren't making any new Wallykazam shows--Oops did I say that already?!?!🤔🤔🤔
Thanks to ETSY all was not lost!🤩 No birthday party could go on without our traditional birthday shirt and I found his wonderful T-shirt from the wonderful The Lion and Unicorn Shop.
While on-line I found masks for the treat bags what were to die for. They had 2 masks of each of the principle characters that easily fit a child's head. Each child had the opportunity to leave as their favorite Wallykazam character.
No party would be complete without a banner. Jeremy was completely mesmerized by seeing all of his favorite characters come to life outside the TV Screen. Of course in true toddler fashion he kept trying to pull the banner down but lesson learned...place it higher!
I found wonderful cupcake toppers from 21CreationsToo also on Etsy and wonderful stickers to decorate the party favor boxes I picked up from the Dollar store.
Each party favor box included a mask, bubbles (any true Wallykazam fan knows why) and a party blower from JBsMomCreations.
This party would not have been the success it was if it wasn't for the wonderful people at The Little Gym at Germantown! They made setup and cleanup a breeze! And they totally flowed with my group of Critter Campers (another Wallykazam reference for those fans).
Embracing my imperfection and striving for perfection through grace.
