Saturday Centus: Party Flavors

Jenny Matlock has challenged us to write 100 words and incorporate, "Birthday Party Flavor" in our response. I loved writing this - it evoked a wonderful trip down memory lane, and oh, those memories have lots of 'flavor'!

There was nothing I loved more than putting together a themed Birthday party for my sons. Each year, weeks before the big event, I’d involve the Birthday boy and we’d go all out in planning. Although the cake was aways a surprise, we would make important decisions about the invitations, decorations, music, games to play, and most crucial, the Birthday party flavor. Yes, you read that correctly! It’s one of those ‘cute things your kids say’ that remain in the family vernacular. We had fireman parties, a soccer theme, Davy Crockett and the Teddy Bear Picnic - each party having its own distinctive ‘flavor’!

  1. Awww...awesome memories. Compared to this, I gave my daughter very boring birthdays.

  2. Oh, what fun memories. I love the photos, especially the one at the kid-sized picnic table and the one with the Davy Crockett hats!!

    1. I think I borrowed the little tables from my son's preschool. They were perfect for our "Teddy Bear Picnic" for what's a picnic without picnic tables?!
      The Davy Crockett party was the best. I made the hats from an old pelt my husband had been given, and hubby made the guns - maybe they wouldn't be politically correct in this day, but the kids had great fun with them!

  3. What a precious post! Aren't all the wonderful "flavors" of life just what we live for???

  4. What great flavors and parties too! Good job mom :]

  5. These were just great happy and so delicious birthday flavors times ever right!

  6. Oh! I absolutely loved this post! All those happy faces in the pictures! Where does time go? I remember doing this for my own kids like it was last month!

    Thanks for a wonderfully nostalgic use of this prompt!
