You would think that someone with six years of event planning experience, numerous weddings under their belt and a love for all things "party" would be able to pull off a birthday party for a one year old in their sleep right? WRONG!
Planning a party for your child when you are a professional planner takes on an identity of its own. Talk about pressure.
After 3+ months of venue searching, theme hunting and logistics scenarios, I'm happy to say that things are finally a "go" with baby C's 1st birthday party. We finally decided on a "football theme" complete with décor, a "stadium" inspired menu and of course…all things football. No rubber duckies or cute teddies at this party. Real turf, coaches, jerseys and cleats are sure to make guest appearences throughout the décor.
And yes, I did say 1 year old birthday party. Darn that MTV and all the pressure it puts on us parents.
So, if you're looking for amazing venues for your child's birthday, allow me to save you just a little legwork. Consider the following non-traditional locations in the area (thanks Nanette):
Garden State Discovery Museum
Oceans in Motion
Please Touch Museum (Philadelphia, PA)
My name is Isis and I love any excuse to throw a fabulous party!
