Lessons Learned At A 5 Year Old's Birthday Party

1. Two hours is way too long for a birthday party. Way, way too long.

2. There are parents that will actually drop off their 4-5 year old with a stranger for 2 hours without batting an eye.

3. Twins ARE double trouble.

4. You can never have too much glitter.

5. Four and five year olds do not care how many hours you spent searching for the perfect decorations or how many different times you re-decorated the cake.

6. 15 year old mother's helpers are lifesavers. Don't throw a party without one.

7. The look on your princess' face makes it all worth it in the end.


  1. LOVE the cake. Okay, you guys don't drop-off usually? Seriously parents here look at you weird if you try to stay. I had 13 4 year olds all by myself at Esther's party last year. Most parents don't even come in the door and I think I see big smiles on their faces as they head to that is what I do when it is my turn to drop-off.

  2. I love the table and the treats. And the cake!! Did you make that? I think I'll do my daughter's next party at the Tea Room, they have hats and gloves and dress up stuff for this type of table. And we most always drop off. We only stay if a parent needs us/or asks us to help out.

  3. With a table like that, I can only imagine her look. What a great job you did!!

  4. Wow! Looks like a gorgeous party! Great job!

  5. WOW! Is this for real or from a glossy magazine? I can't believe it. That looks like a dreamy party!! You are an amazing hostess! The girls are lucky to have such great parties.
    I could never accomplish this feat and if I tried I would be in bed for a week afterward!
    You are the QUEEN.

  6. Oh MY WORD! You had one heck of a party! WAY TO GO!

  7. I have no doubt you threw a great birthday party! You can take your lessons learned and apply them to princess #3's 5th birthday party in a few years. :)
