Come take a trip with me on my wild ride as the mother of 3 sweet "babies".

They have been FOUND!  The computer gods are smiling down at me right now.  I'm crazy excited.  Here's some more pics of the decorations, and a few of my smiling 5-year-old! I didn't include any pics of the party-goers, because this is a public blog, and I don't want to show pics of babies who aren't mine.

 The food table was fun and festive.  I stole some of my ideas from other blogging mommies, and others I did all on my own.  Since you are reading this blog, I know you CAN read, so I'll let you read the food labels yourself.  :)

 I'm a crazy woman with my computer and my scrapbooking supplies.  I made these labels out of leftover baby shower thank you notes.  Not planning on using THOSE again!

The cupcakes rocked my world.  I ordered them from Suplise It's a Party!  The lady had never heard of The Fresh Beat Band before, but thanks to Google, she was able to create a yummy replica of Kiki's guitar!  I'd say it was "kickin'!"

 I bought colorful cups from Oriental Trading and decorated them with pics of the FBB and each child's name on the back.  We used them for our Groovy Smoothies, of course!
 Since this was a music themed party, I got out all of our instruments, and borrowed a few from Parents as Teachers - one of the perks of my job!  The kids played instruments along with our party soundtrack (see party favors from last blog post) as they came in.
 As each child entered, they received a VIP backstage pass to see the Fresh Beat Band.  Bella dressed as Kiki, Delaney was Marina, Luke was Shout, and Jerry was Twist.  I was Miss Piccolo - lucky me, she was off duty, so she was wearing regular clothes instead of the stuffy suits she wears on the show! We also played some games - "Loco Legs Sack Race" and "Musical Dots" (just like musical chairs, but with dots on the floor - once they were out, they went upstairs for their Groovy Smoothie.)  They also made a keychain/zipper pull craft that I picked up at Michaels.

My big girl is FIVE!  I can hardly believe it.  She'll be going to kindergarten in the fall, and that completely blows my mind!  I'm so proud of her.  As she went to bed that night, she thanked me for the "best party ever."  Now you see why I go to so much work.  She's totally worth it.

  1. LOVE the ideas. Thank you for sharing your FBB Birthday party. I'm trying to put one together for my 2 year old. I'm not nearly as creative as you are!
