Summertime birthdays seem to have the perfect party built-in with pools and splash pads open, but now that September is here, you might be scratching your head looking for party ideas. I’ve rounded up my favorite celebrations in the graphics below.
But first, let’s take a trip down memory lane. Connor’s birthday is in February, so we have had to think creatively about cold-weather celebrations.
For his first and second birthdays, we had a party at My Gym Brentwood. We loved that everything was taken care of for us: the decorating, the entertainment, the cleanup. All we had to do was show up and enjoy! My Gym offers a discount on party packages if you donate toys or food to local charities. The My Gym staff even takes care of delivering the donations, making it super easy for families. Even at one, Connor had MORE than enough toys, so we requested friends bring canned goods to donate instead of presents.
By the time his third birthday came, the pandemic was in full force. We didn’t feel comfortable doing a big party at that time. Connor requested a day with animals for his birthday, so we went to Willis Willow Farm for a private farm tour. Connor loved it! He got to feed the chickens, collect eggs, brush the donkeys, and take a short ride on a horse. It was wonderful!
I’ve rounded up my top ideas for parties and organized them into themes. I hope they help give you inspiration for your own party planning
