It’s January… which means this mama is already in party planning mode for Caroline’s 6th Birthday Party!! For those who think I am crazy, yes I know I am, but when it comes to parties, you can’t wait until the last minute [or maybe that’s just me], but I always like to have my list of items/details well thought out prior to execution!
Since the first time I took Caroline roller skating last fall, she has been BEGGING for a skating party, so her wish is my command… plus, I might be secretly STOKED this is what she chose because it’s one of my favorite pastimes, too! And yes, here in Nashville we wore speed skates whereas Jeff swears up and down that rollerblades were cool in Knox [no I don’t believe it either].
So, I started about a month ago
perusing stalking Pinterest, and then soliciting the help of my talented friend Kate via Orange Valentine Design [you can find her on IG here] to get the ball rolling on the invitations and overall color palette of pink, yellow and green! Of course, she sent back the most amazing options and then I narrowed it down to the one below…. seriously SO sweet and perfect for Caroline’s party!
Now I’ve got to tackle a few other odds and ends, like a cake [oh yes I think funfetti is in our future for this shindig], favors, the menu, and decor to make the Skate Center shine bright… oh yes, we’ve rented out the rink for the night so it’ll just be our hot mess party crew taking over and playing all the tunes we request = YIPPEE!!
Until then, you’ll find me stocking up on the necessary party goods from my go-to shop, Sweet Lulu, crushing on all the paper items and decorative props and must-haves for our big girls celebration…
