Sherman didn’t know which was more humiliating, Cinderella approaching while he was wearing his over-sized pink rabbit hat or being forced to stand at attention with that smell wafting from under the bathroom door.
Last summer Markus told me he wanted a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle birthday party. He even went so far as to make decorations and ask me to save them for his party (a portrait of each Ninja Turtle), which I didn’t recall until I pulled out his decorations box.
I didn’t go overboard with decorations, just used some of what we had on hand and bought some balloons and a few streamers. I painted a Leonardo onto the side of a large box and Husband cut him out. That took time, but was free, since I already had all the paint I used. I love it when I can pull off a party on the cheap! Plus, Markus was tickled that I put up all the decorations in the order in which he ALWAYS says their names, as though they are one unit: Raphael-Donatello-Michelangelo-Leonardo. 🙂
Some obliging family members:
M’s handmade decorations and one Anja made for him.
Thanks to Pinterest for supplying most of my ideas!
Toys make great centerpieces! Not the first time I’ve used that trick. In fact, the 4th of his 4 birthday parties. 🙂
Of COURSE we served pizza, because it’s the Ninja Turtles’ favorite food.
