Well, he did it. I kept telling big C that I wasn’t old enough to have a four year old, but he turned four anyway. I can’t believe how time has flown!
We had a small family get-together to celebrate his special day, and though I went much simpler with this party then for baby C’s first birthday, there were still some fun, creative touches, not to mention Scooby galore!
The bunting banner (above) was the only non-food decor item I made specifically for the party. It has been the year of Scooby Doo, however, and I had a leftover “Mystery Machine” from the boys’ Halloween costumes that I got to pull out again.
I loved that the punch *just happened* to match the rest of the decor…
And, thanks to an edible cake topper, the cake was a success!
My sweet little man was just tickled to be surrounded by his family as he celebrated turning 4! I’m glad he had a fun birthday this year, because I’ve forbidden him to get any older! 😉
What’s your birthday party philosophy? Keep it simple? Go all out? Little bit of both?
