Calling all moms of boys!
Boys, particularly older boys, can be hard to plan a party for. But if you have boys you already know that!
My oldest is getting ready to turn 9. We are past the Bob the Builder, fireman, and Clifford stage with him. He likes skateboarding, BMX bikes and things that make mothers nervous.
So I was searching around on etsy and found this shop. The Green Grass Grows. After "liking" most of her items for sale, I did some shopping.
First I ordered cupcake toppers for the party.
Here's her photo from the listing:
I didn't buy the invitations but am kind of wishing I had.
She was so sweet to work with on things and custom did this banner for us (this is her photo from the listing...instead of it being a "happy birthday" banner, we got it spelling out our son's name. This is a gift for him...to hang as a decoration in his bedroom). It turned out great! :)
