For starters, I made a super easy banner. I found the idea HERE, but I didn't want to involve my sewing machine, so I simplified it!! :)
This is what the invitations said:
Hunter’s 7th birthday!
We’ll be doing lots of
Hunter’s favorite things
& he wants his favorite
people to join him!
The party was only 2 hours long, but we managed to squeeze in a few fun things!! :)
Hunter's favorite superhero is Spiderman, so we rented this bouncer! We could have EASILY gotten away only having this as our entertainment, but of course, that would be too easy!! ;)
I made mini bow & arrows for each kid (one bow w/ 5 arrows each)! They were kinda time consuming - - you have to soak the sticks in water (the longer the better. . . like overnight!), then cut little notches on each side - top & bottom - then while bending the sticks (carefully), tie (I used embroidery floss) the string on both ends!! They were worth it, because they were actually quite awesome!! They shot pretty far!! We had a contest to see who could hit the target & the kids were so serious!! ;) Again. . . Pinterest!!! ;)
Our menu was full of Hunter's favorite foods: Hamburgers (and hot dogs), his favorite chips, his favorite veggies & dip, pasta salad, and his favorite drink - 7Up (mini Halloween cans). . . perfect for a 7th birthday!! ;) I also had water bottles that I removed the labels from & wrapped a strip of cool duct tape around!! (Pinterest!!;)
Simple goodie bags - red lunch sacks!!
A simple party that was lots of fun!!!! :) (I guess I should call it our "Pinterest Party"!! ;)
