I love party planning and am always bookmarking cute ideas to save for the future. I love anything that is unique, especially if most of it is DIY-ed. When I came across Henry’s Golden Birthday Party, I went into serious boy envy. (I have three girls and will probably never have a son.) Everything was done so well, yet so simply.
