If the idea of throwing a birthday party for your kids at home sends you into a total panic, I understand completely. For me, nothing causes more constricted breathing than the thought of having twenty some odd kids over to spend two hours at my place sugar-infused and running wild. I do have to say though, there is something really nice (and financially sound) about having a party at home — I mean isn’t that what we all grew up with?
A friend recently tipped me off to this adorable Etsy shop called Love the Day when she threw a princess-themed tea party for her daughter last month. Love the Day offers customized paper party decor and will help to develop a complete party theme — making everything from invitations, to banners, to cupcake holders to customized water bottles and these adorable chocolate wrappers, and it is all VERY reasonable and with a quick turnaround. The designs are all emailed to you directly and all you have to do is take them to your local print shop to produce the goods. If I do decide to bite the bullet and bring the party home this year, Love the Day will be the first stop in the process.
