Last weekend was one for the books. It marked the last time I held a combined birthday party for the boys, and the first time I’ve spent less than $50 on birthday party decorations.
SAY WHAT?? It’s true! Thanks to Walmart Canada, I found everything I needed in one place, at fabulous prices. In fact, I *may* have thrown my own little party in Aisle 3 as I filled my cart with party favours and decorations in our theme du jour, Disney Pixar Cars. Ka-Chow!
From party hats to paper plates, temporary tattoos to cake candles, there is absolutely everything you’ll need to put on the perfect themed party. In addition to the goodies shown on the right, I scooped up:
– Door posters for my backyard sliding doors
– A balloon pump for the balloons
– Streamers and a “Happy Birthday” banner
– A Lightning McQueen pinata
– Cars-themed loot bags
I also purchased additional yellow balloons to strew throughout my main floor, leading up to the backyard where the party was set to take place. We were blessed with beautiful weather, surrounded by friends and family, and thanks to our resident grill master (my husband), were treated to delicious party food.
(Side note: I’ve decided that every party should include hamburgers and barbecued chicken. There’s just something so darn soul-satisfying about noshing on BBQ on a summery night in May.)
The boys’ party included a mix of parents and kiddos, so we had the best of both worlds – adult conversation (and beer) peppered with squeals of delight, my gorgeous niece and my girlfriend’s sweet lil’ shih poo.
Respecting the privacy of our guests, here are the two birthday boys, just after the party began.
