生日派对–我希望趋势能持续下去!

生日派对–我希望趋势能持续下去!

尼尔总是参加大型井喷生日派对!我们的孩子们和我们一样,都热爱庆祝活动,所以在过去的七年中,我们’我有义务!小健身房,卡丁车赛道,梦幻公园,弹跳房,热狗车(谢谢) 奥斯汀’s Underdawg’s)…you name it, we’已将其合并到我们至少一个孩子中’生日快乐。接着…..2020…..以及社会隔离的出现和“drive-by”生日聚会。当我最初听说这一趋势时,我就将其清除,建议我们推迟并庆祝我们的大儿子’的生日(5月下旬),届时CDC提出了更多建议,可以举行更大的聚会。但是随着他大日子的临近,不像我们通常那样庆祝他就感到很奇怪。您看,埃弗里特(Everett)出生,此后不久就被诊断出唐氏综合症(Down syndrome),所以他的实际生日是’恰恰是应该进行的庆祝活动(直到今天我仍然感到悲伤)。也许他每个生日聚会’从那时起,我就可以应对。但是我’我不是心理学家,坦率地说,我’我非常内向….so在最后一分钟,我决定放开内,拥抱“it is what it is” mindset, and organize a quarantine-style, socially-distanced, 开车 birthday party.  And I learned a few things:  1) –这是庆祝每个人似乎都很喜欢并可以参加的小孩的一种非常冷酷的方式,可以按照自己的意愿而少或多! 2)– It’比较便宜和超级容易。因此,这是我现在可以提供的一些快速提示和链接“drive-by b-day party” veteran.

提示1:’s all about signage

我想这一切始于我的跟随 重击生日迹象 在Instagram上,并爱上了他们可爱的生日院子招牌!我仔细阅读了他们的Insta帐户,看到几张男孩可爱标志的照片,包括乐高积木标志,蓝色图案标志,迷彩标志和其他很酷的生日颜色。由于埃弗里特仍然不讲语言,所以我下载了几张图片,并请他毫不犹豫地选择他想要的照片。–他用弯曲的小食指指向迷彩院子的标志。迷彩,它是bruh。三个男孩都喜欢它,而我的中间孩子现在正在本月底为他的生日乞讨乐高标志。我们生活在一个角落,所以这让我开始思考…为什么没有更多的迹象?为什么不“honk it’s my birthday” sign?  Why not a 开车 birthday party?  It was very much a slippery slope which tells you a lot about how cute those dang signs are!  So I went all out…最后一刻FB邀请家人….and more signs.

随着日期的临近,我决定加倍努力 坎瓦 魔术并创造出部分自制的“honk it’s my birthday” sign using some 我设计的抠图, 梅丽莎& Doug roll paper,一些 海绵油漆刷和我的孩子们’ 可水洗的绘儿乐涂料!我花了大约2个小时,老实说,这是我献给这个生日聚会的最大时间(我通常花几天时间为主题完美的聚会做工…这次不行,不行)。您可能会在较短的时间内做出类似的标记 使用类似材料的时间,但是我对这个标牌有点不知所措,因为这将是一个非常明显的标志,挂在我们的角落围栏上。我知道我想要Insta图片(#priorities)。我认为结果真的很可爱,如果您需要一些Canva提示,我’我不是专业人士(但我有专业人士帐户…lol!), I’乐于分享。也许是为我的下一个IGTV帖子准备了一个教程!最后我也买了一些 生日赃物 还有很长的时间 多彩锦旗 从亚马逊。将赃物拼凑起来并用胶带粘在我们的前廊上,大概花费了15分钟,而花的时间比拉下三角旗并将其绑在屋子的街道上要少。

提示2:’还可以轻松享受生日礼物!

我的男孩Ev,爱他一些比萨饼和纸杯蛋糕。因此,我们请他参加了前院的家庭比萨聚会。还有蛋糕 没什么蛋糕 for dessert.  We ordered a few dozen bundtinis and passed them out to 开车 attendees if they wanted some – we plated them by family/car with kitchen tongs and washed our hands after every exchange. We sang happy birthday to him as a little family of 5 after his 开车 birthday party, where he blew out the candles on another bundtini and we ate homemade ice cream (I have two great recipes that take about 10 minutes to make…然后25分钟冻结…也许另一个教程?)。

提示3:’s all about the 开车

I was surprised at how much fun everyone 看到med to have at our little 开车 bash!  It really was a win-win for everyone, as the boys have great-grandparents who are very involved in their lives, and wanted to 看到 Ev on his big day but keep safe by maintaining their distance.  And they really turned it up on the car signage!  My grandparents from Louisiana even threw Mardi Gras beads (LOL)!  I did mention in the FB invite that anyone who blinged out their car and/or blasted child-friendly rap music (or another creative form of celebration) would get a mentions in my Insta stories, but I decided to reward their authentic party-loving little souls right here on my blog.  Loads of pics that you can get inspiration from (to your left) as future attendees of parade-style birthday celebrations!  Big shout out to everyone who showed up and showed out!  Even Ev’s的gamma和姨妈在迷彩标志前拍了一个FaceTime客串。

绝对值得一提–一些与会者掉进了“at risk” category such as great-grandparents and the birthday boy himself (T21 comes with a host of health stuff, including being more susceptible to viruses and infections, and fighting harder to recover), so we created a lot of options for guests including the option of attending virtually, a quick 开车 and card toss (my aunt did this), cupcakes or no cupcakes, etc.  If you are throwing a parade-style party, please consult the 疾病预防控制中心并遵守其安全预防措施。放聪明点。注意安全。被告知。如果您选择这样的庆祝活动,请准备好踢回去,玩得开心,并享受您的孩子–我认为有些优点在过去的大型井喷聚会中迷失了。
