Fresh Finds: Birthday Party Themes that Go Way Beyond Pretty

As you could probably tell from yesterday’s post, I get pretty excited about fun new ways to pass the time with the kiddos.  Birthday parties are no exception.  In fact my birthday party philosophy has evolved over the years from picture pretty to laid back fun to party-not-entirely-necessary.  Which is why I loved curating this collection of kid parties that value playtime over photo opps.


Pictured above is one of my favorite finds, an amazing Wipeout themed celebration.  Head over to momtastic for the goods on that party as well as transportation and bowling parties, the likes of which you’ve never seen.
