Two years ago, I was blessed with the best gift in the world; my son Luca! It feels like yesterday when I was expecting and awaiting his arrival. The last two years have flown by and have been the greatest two years of my life! Not only was it Luca’s birthday today, but it was also his first day of preschool. I contemplated sending him to school on his birthday, but decided to send him since my husband and I would be able to go into the classroom for a birthday party! We thought this would give us an opportunity to meet the teachers, children and see how Luca was behaving in a new environment. His birthday party will be on Saturday and the theme will be a barnyard/farm animals. I decided to carry this theme into his classroom. I bought colorful barn animal napkins and dessert plates. Each child got a mini Juicy Juice juice box and a mini cupcake. Each cupcake had a fondant animal topper on top of the cupcake. As the children ate their cupcakes I walked around handing out animal stickers and listened to kids all making animal sounds! It was very cute! For favors, I bought each child a box of animal crackers and had thank you labels made that I tied around the handle of the box. I thought the party favor looked adorable and as a parent, felt this gift was better than getting a bag full of little toys and junk! Luca enjoyed his first day of school and eating his cupcake with his new friends. I hope that he will be excited to go back for his second day of school on Thursday!
