It was so appropriate that the gift table at my son’s birthday party be set up near the “share” painted on the wall in the banquet room of the celebration locale. All of these gifts are actually donations (in lieu of traditional birthday presents) to be made to the Florida Wildlife Hospital. My good friend, Colleen suggested this idea, and I believe it is truly brilliant. (If you haven’t already read Rawleen’s blog about the party, we put the event together to celebrate my son’s 2nd and her daughter’s 3rd…in keeping with the theme, we “shared” the fun!) So many parents expressed interest in “sharing” Colleen’s idea and finding other charities and organizations that could work into themes for their own children’s parties. To bring the theme to the kids’ level, we decorated with animal confetti and “Diego and Dora”, super cool cartoon characters who perform animal rescues (for those of you who don’t follow pre-school TV!) We put the party favors into these cute boxes for all the little animal rescuers in attendance. I made some fruit leather and Colleen made fabulous playdough. We served some raw and vegan food, supplemented with a few SAD staples to ease our workload. It was great to see people head for the good-for-you stuff! Here’s a peek at the fun my baby had at the party…sharing a moment with Dad…
