Aaaaaand just like that another one of my angels hit double digits [!!!] What is life right now?!

The only up side to this whole, my babies are growing up so dang fast it makes my wanna kim k ugly cry, situation is that I get to throw a party - and it’s no secret, I LOVE to throw parties.

Eleven years and four kids in to this mom journey I’ve learned a few things about a few things ... and one of the MAIN things I have learned about kids parties is that the party is for the kids :) If I had an endless budget I would invite everyone I know, adults and kids alike, but the truth is I don’t have an endless budget and being realistic with the costs and the non negotiables is key to having a successful party. For instance, friends are at the top of the priority list for my girls so I’d much rather budget for fun little elements for them rather than spend it all on food to feed 50 adults.

Ultimately, at the the end of the day it looks different for everyone so if a park day with lots of family, friends and their parents [&] less decor is your jam then own it, because that’s so much fun too [!!!] Just make sure you plan, plan, plan ahead so you’re not going crazy the day of 😳😉

So here we have it ... an all girls [with the exception of daddy & baby brother] Museum Of Icecream inspired Swim Party for my Nylah Elianie 💗✨
