Since three of my four kids have back-to-back birthday months (around the holidays nonetheless), I find it essential to plan their party themes in advance. This allows me to create a better party for my child and spend less (it's those last-minute purchases that kill the budget). Right now I'm helping my daughter put together her Paris-themed birthday party...we've been planning it for a year now. As I put together ideas, I'm daydreaming of our experiences there--including a crazy driving tour of l'Arc de Triomphe. Those 3 minutes were truly some of the scariest in my life! Imagine about 10 lanes, all unmarked, with several turn offs. To be honest, I was thankful to have survived.
Today's party prep task is deciding what the "pin-the-__" game is going to look like. Pin the beret on the French schoolgirl? (she did after all attend school in France) Pin the French flag on the top of the Eiffel Tower? If you have any clever ideas, I'd love to hear them!
