A Whimsical, Seussical 3rd Birthday Celebration!

Mel K By Mel K  in Birthday


Party Recap

The party began at Chicago Treehouse play center. The kids (and even some adults) had a great time. The party continued at my parent's home where we had lunch, cake and more fun. My son helped with some of the decorations and even chipped in making the chocolate covered pretzel rods with sprinkles. Everyone loved them.


Party Highlights

  • Desserts

    Mason jar cakes (were a big hit), strawberry creme pie and the birthday boy had a fruit tart.

  • Activities / Games

    The party started at the Chicago Treehouse where the boys (and adults) were able to run, climb and slide. After we went to my parents house to celebrate and have lunch. The kids ended the party with the pinata!

  • Most Touching Moment

    Watching my nephew "take care of" my son. While they were at the Treehouse he would take Aidan in his lap down the slides. It was so sweet.

    We used a posterboard (cut to size) wrapped it to form the tube and taped it in place, then we taped it to a round cardboard cake plate. I created fringed crepe paper first and then wrapped them around the tube painstakingly. The top is where I cheated and just used red duct tape to cover and secure the wire hangar. In hindsight the pinata was virtually indestructible because of the posterboard. :) We ended up poking holes in various places to help the kids out. LOL.
