The time has come to get ready to plan my soon to be 13 year old’s birthday party– oh my- where has the time gone to?
Planning teens birthday parties are always hard because at this stage they really just want to chill and hang with friends and not really have and do all the fun stuff that it is usually involved in a party
Let me tell ya– this is hard for me– for those of you who know me personally- know that I love planning a good party but oh- no, not this time. My son just wants to “kick it”— really? That’s it? Oh goodness, how am I going to do that?
So I came up with a compromise
Throw a Game Lounge themed party!
Sounds cool–huh? Yeah I know. I try.
Don’t you think that’s a good compromise? I still get to plan a good party (because I can still make it work) and he still gets to chill.
Now– this is kind of late start with the planning but I think I can get it done– here’s some of the inspiration that I found to make it work.
Thinking that I will throw the party at night and let him do an all night celebration.
Want to create this– lots of glow in the dark paint and multiple televisions set up for the boys to play video games on.
So cool. Now it’s time to “try” to recreate as much of this as possible.
Wish me luck and stay tuned as I show my progress.
