Birthday Party Inspiration {Giveaway}

Though it’s only March I’m already thinking about the boys birthday parties. Both have birthdays in June so we normally do a joint party. Thankfully both of them like similar things since they are only a year apart in age and a joint party works for us still. I don’t see it happening for many more years as even this year, at ages 3 and 4, they are starting to grow apart. Jacob says he wants an “Avengers” party and Lucas wants a “pink cake” (though I know he would be happy with an Avengers party as well). I don’t see a pink cake fitting in with the Avengers theme.

So of course there are the themes that the boys want and then there are the themes that this mom would choose if she had her choice. I was browsing Minted.com which is a site that has everything from birthday card invites to wedding invitations to birth announcements to Holiday cards and has inspiration boards with themed party ideas. Here are some of my favorites birthday party ones:

And just because I couldn’t resist posting this adorable little theme for girls (though Lucas would LOVE this as well….)

Tea Party by Gina, see more www.minted.com

Aren’t these fabulous party ideas!? I love that the inspiration boards cover everything from the invites to decorations to snacks. Any reason you can think to throw a party, Minted is there to provide the cards and inspiration you need!
