first. i am SUCH a planner. i get excited and find comfort in lists. lots and lots of lists. down to what the family is all wearing for an event.. i started planning Finnegans party in late october just to start getting a feel for what direction we were going.. i knocked out alot of the heavy planning and brainstorming prior to december. with finns birthday being so close to christmas, it was really important to me that the holiday didnt get over looked either. that we really celebrated the christmas season too. the previous year i was 3 days over due and pretty bummed that our baby wasnt here, so the day kinda passed us by. i wasnt going to let that happen.
Signs..which I had to re-do since I left out the E!
We did a fun chili bar with toppings, and the option of a classic chili or a white chicken chili.
We made a timeline out of a pallet. On each clothes pin I put the month in which the photo was taken.
My biggest tip, we had a coloring area for the older kids who came, that gave them something to do, and for the babies I brought over a basket of Finns toys, a couple containers of ‘puffs’ and some sanitizing wipes for the moms who are freaked out about sharing germs. This kept all the parents of young kids in an area where the babes had something to do and the parents could socialize and not chase them around or have to hold them the whole time.
