Birthday Bashes

Oct 31, 2008 05:00PM ● By Super Admin

So your child’s birthday is less than a month away. The pressure’s on to make his or her special day both unique and memorable, but you’re fresh out of ideas… and time.
To help get the creative juices flowing, we asked one of the area’s best resources, the El Dorado Mother of Multiples (EDMoMs) club, for input on the latest party trends and locations. Boasting members from Rocklin to Placerville with a total of more than 450 kids, this group knows birthdays.

Tweeners (ages 9-12)
As kids get older, birthdays with smaller, closer groups of friends are key. Also, ditch traditional goodie bags for take-home items that tie into the party, such as slippers for slumber party guests, etc.

Movie Nights
For a twist on the old concept, use an LCD projector to display a favorite flick outdoors against a white sheet. Rent a popcorn machine and break out sodas and candy bars for the full effect.
