They say it's your birthday...

Probably my favorite part of planning my kid's birthday parties is the goody bags! Love finding good deals (I usually hit up The Dollar Tree, The Christmas Tree Shops and Target dollar bins) and coming up with cute little stuff that goes with the theme.

Let's see, Ry's 1st was all about Beach balls and all things "summery". I found beach pails at The Dollar Tree and I personalized them for all the kids. This is making me think now...but it was filled with bubbles, a beach ball and a few other "summer" things.

His 2nd was a Jungle! I found everything for this one at Oriental Trading. (LOVE!) I think every kid left with a zillion monkeys, lions and zebras after that party!

His 3rd was Fire truck. This was fun, found plates and cups at Party City, firetruck crayons from Etsy, wooden fire truck from Target $$ bins, some tattoos, books, etc. If it had a fire truck, I got it!

Notice the favor tags from Chickabug! ADORABLE STUFF!

and of course his sister had to be sportin' a fire truck clip!

Now, sweet Emmy girl has had only one birthday so far and it was a garden party. Flowers, butterflies, ladybugs, and all things girly! Found stuff on Oriental trading, Etsy (ladybug crayons), Target & Christmas Tree Shop :)

Favor tags from Chickabug, again :)
