How to throw a super simple birthday party for an 11 year old boy.
Back in September my oldest turned 11 years old. Ugh.
He is 5 foot tall now ( a mere 7" shorter than me) and in his last year of elementary school.
I threw him a small, simple party this year.
He invited a handful of friends to come celebrate.
I filled the kitchen table with junk food, koolaide and labeled plates and cups.
Party favors in paper cups I got at Target dollar spot.
I put googly eyes on and filled with a few party favors from Party City and gum.
Outside a bowl of styrofoam airplanes, glow sticks and silly string.
They came to hang out for 3 hours and just ate and played as they pleased.
Kickball and football in the front yard.
Silly string in the back yard.
Foam light saber whacking and wrestling on the trampoline.
Dinner was Z's favs...chicken tacos and watermelon.
Cookie cake (decked out in Clemson colors) and sparklers to end the night. :)
