The Best 7th Birthday Party at Pump It Up, HB | @PumpItUpOC

Just this last week, my handsome boy turned 7. The years are going so fast (as everyone said they would), but this time, we were extra busy with enrolling him in soccer and now Fall baseball. Typically I enjoy throwing him huge parties at the house, inviting all our local relatives as well as a few (10-20) of his closest friends. Yes, a HUGE undertaking, but this year our schedule didn’t allow it! Thankfully we decided to rely on Pump It Up in Huntington Beach to help us create the perfect celebration for our birthday boy.

Fabulous 5th Birthday

Moms now a days tend to go over the top when it comes to birthdays. I just happen to be guilty of trying to come up with an adorable theme and go crazy with the decorations. With my princess’ 5th birthday party, it just had to be Fabulous 5th Birthday.

Melissa Invitation

Typically I start with an idea or a theme and run with it.  Since my beautiful daughter has become quite the fashionista/diva, I decided it certainly had to be a “fancy” party.  Pink, Black and animal print seemed rather appropriate and I began my search for party supplies.
