I am getting ready for my daughter's 3rd birthday next weekend on April 4th. I wanted to share some of the things that I did in preparation for the party.  I try to find ways to make my parties unique without spending a lot.
 
 What are your creative ideas for a children's birthday party? I will add some pictures of the party next week including the food of course!

Very Nice! I loved your ideas. Last year my som wanted to have a Little Einsteins b-day party theme and back then I couldn't find it anything at the local stores, so I was able to find some things at ebay as well.

The best and cheapest party I did was for my daughters 10th birthday, we did a Louau (sp) theme and told everyone to come dressed in hula skirts. I did a Treasure hunt around the neighbourhood but had the map of Hawaii they had to decipher a coded message in Hawaiiain and they had to make a volcano and they had to limbo dance and lots of other stuff the girls still talk about it now 5 1/2 years later!!

My daughter just turned 2, so I don't quite have to worry about the themed birthdays yet. :-) I know that's not going to last.

Hi MySweetCreations! Looks like a great party! My boys' birthdays are July 1 & 2 so we would always just have a huge barbecue, invite everyone we knew and all the neighbors so they wouldn't complain. We'd do a bounce house and slip-n-slide, and just party all day and night. I miss those days. Thanks for blogging!

About Me
I am a Southern California wife and mother of one. I am a simple person that enjoys home decor, baking, and spending time with my family. You can also find me on YouTube - House of Aqua: http://www.youtube.com/user/HouseOfAqua/videos?sort=dd&flow=list&page=1&view=0
My favorite things to cook
I enjoy making a variety of ice cream, cookies, cakes, and candies. In recent years I have branched out by making new dinner recipes and found that I enjoy the challenge.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I have a daughter that loves to help me bake. We spend Christmas Eve in the kitchen making special cookies for Santa together.
My cooking triumphs
I consider tempering chocolate and making caramels a triumph. You either get it right or your wrong!
My cooking tragedies
I failed several times at trying to make fondant centers for truffles. I decided to put my candymaking book away for a while!
