seeing that i'm not a rocket scientist, i still have not figured out a way to turn back time. so, this being the case, brynn's party will commence in 3 days.
the theme = owls.
this is only because her birthday invite had owls on it. how i plan on actually incorporating them besides the cake? no idea.
this is where you come in- yay for you!
i need party favors. owl cookies? owl...something else? in reality this is really a party for adults since i think there will be all of 4 children there (2 of which are mine) but i still want to send something home with people. preferably something edible- because everyone has to eat.
i was leaning toward owl cookies- but lets be honest- i won't make them. i barely have time to clean the house & slap a cake together, much less cutout sugar cookies & apply royal icing.
maybe i'll just make some cookies, bag them & slap on an owl sticker.
and decorations? psha. this is going on in our tiny little log home. which is already decorated for Christmas. so throwing up a bunch of cutesy owl stuff is even less likely to happen than cookies.
i'll probably grab a few balloons, tie them to her highchair & call it a day.
part of me feels badly that her 1st b-day is so tiny. alex's was big & bad, as was her 2nd. but it was also warm & dry outside for both.
but poor brynn was born in Dec, to parents that own a house in New England with less than 1100 sq ft of living space.
all of those factors = party indoors. party small. party minimal.
tis' life. but it's ok- she knows we love her & everyone there loves her & she'll get a cupcake- so i'm 99.9% sure she'll be alright.
...even if i did tell people, "eh, you don't have to bring her a present. we've got tons of crap already!"
but she doesn't know that. & i'm betting everyone will still bring her something- because seriously, how do you go to a 1year old's party & bring her nothing? hmm? you can't- it's impossible.
i'm glad everyone isn't as heartless as i am.
so yes. party at the bird house on saturday. pizza & cake- yes. party favors & room to stretch- maybe.
