I can’t believe this much time has passed since Otis turned 4!! I am finally getting around to sharing photos from his special birthday party. It’s funny because MONTHS before his actual birthday, I started to ask him what kind of theme he wanted for his birthday. He INSTANTLY answered with Christmas. Ornaments. Santa. Pretty much it was settled that we would throw him a Christmas themed party. A girlfriend of mine was randomly talking about how she had hired a Santa Claus for her Dance Studio and I reached out to see if he could come for the party. I mean, the actual guy in red at the party?!?! You can imagine Santa is pretty busy in July for all the Christmas in July parties but we lucked out and he was able to join us for some Summer Christmas magic. Otis did great but Duke was very much, “Santa is not my friend” hahahaha. The pictures, taken by my friend Tori, are priceless!!
Everything was diy again. Blake of course did all the balloons because that is now his thing. This one turned out the best yet. I also got all the cute party supplies from meri meri because it’s a great one stop shop for really adorable party gear. I also pulled out an old tree from our Christmas last year in Margate. We also got a new large Christmas Tree for our family room from Balsom Hill and some garlands to decorate that space as well. We are a full faux tree household and this one is incredible because it’s pre-strung with lights and has a little remote. I mean, we can’t have Santa and no tree right?! Honestly seeing Otis’ face light up when Santa knocked on our door is why I go wild for all these parties. I just live to make the world magical for him. We rented a bouncy house which was an incredible idea to keep the kids active and busy. We also gave out the cutest gift bags from The Little Market filled with chalk and some cracker goodies from meri meri. I feel like from now on I will probably do a out of the house bday for Otis since he’s older so this was a special last hurrah for him at home. All details are linked below!
