With Dale’s birthday down and mine on the way, I’ve been thinking back to the days when realbirthday parties existed. You know, the kinds based around a cartoon (TMNT, for example!) or creatures (bugs!) or extra-curricular activity (horseback riding!) The kind where the paper plates matched the paper hats and you always walked away with a goodie bag. Oh, those were the days.To make my seven-year-old self proud, I’d like to share some fun birthday finds from Etsy. Sadly, I don’t have a kid in my life to use as an excuse for getting these. But maybe someday I’ll plan an “old school” birthday party for myself…
