March has become really busy for birthday parties in our house!  Ellie and Will are (7 years and) 10 days apart so party planning was intense.  Down the road I'm sure there are joint parties in their futures but we wanted to make sure Will got his big blow out first birthday party and Ellie had the sleepover of her dreams. Ellie, now 8, has big party ideas that she needs me to help her execute.  She knows what she wants and has specific taste.  For her American Girl sleepover, we used their classic star for our party decorations.  Birthday Express has an amazing selection of balloons of stars in every color that were the perfect compliment.

We used the pink chevron plates and napkins for a fun pop of pattern and the pink tablecloths to keep our granite free of craft casualties and food spills.  Polka dot paper straws are always a fun addition to any party.

Will's party had a classic rock theme based on his nursery.  We again used a chevron print - grey this time - and a really fun backdrop for super cool photos.

Star balloons were a great accent for the party as well as paper straws in vintage milk bottles.

What makes Birthday Express so fun and easy to use is their Complete Birthday In A Box.

You simply plug in your number of guests and all of the coordinating party supplies.  Cups, napkins, plates, table clothes, decorations and more are all right there available to purchase.  It takes the guessing and searching out of buying party supplies online.

Not only can you buy a complete party in a box, Birthday Express also has tons of great party ideas based on your theme.  One of the suggested themes for boys is 'take me out to the ball game'.  When you select the theme, these ideas and DIY tutorials pop up as well.

Birthday Express also can really personalize banners, plates and party supplies.  How cute is this birthday banner with the birthday boy's picture?!

We love these personalized favor boxes with birthday kid photos as well as plates with the child's name!

So cute, and truly personalized to make the birthday boy or girl feel special.

What parties are you planning?
