Everyone who knows me is aware how grumpy I am about having my birthday in the winter. I can't recall how many times I've had to cancel birthday plans due to nasty weather. So when I found out that my son would be born in March, I was excited to have a spring baby, envisioning many parties outside ......... yeah right! The poor boy has so many ideas for ways to celebrate, yet nothing ever works with the weather. So when we found out that our local indoor pool offers swim parties, he was thrilled. For our invitations I wrote the information on mini beach balls with a Sharpie. When deflated, they fit perfectly in a standard envelope.
Splashing around in the water will be fun enough without needing additional entertainment. Now I only need to figure out appropriate favors that spell "summer fun" ... more blow up pool toys?! underwater cameras?! or just gummy sharks?! And clearly the cake needs to be ice cream! Oh, now I'm excited, too!!! Happy Birthday, my spring baby!
(Obviously this invitation would work for a summer party, too ..... just don't rub it in!)
