17th Birthday

Last weekend we celebrated Kurt’s 17th birthday, and his birthday fell on a Saturday this year! Since next year he will be away in college this was his final big birthday party (here at home at least) The theme was a Saturday Night Cartoons party, so I filled the pinata with cocoa’s, cereal bars, milk straws, and Wacky Packages cereal boxes.
We had quiche, egg stuffed croissants, pumpkin scones, and lots of cereal. Kurtis doesn’t like cake so his “cake” was a cereal-marshmellow cake. I made it with a combo of melted dandies marshmallows and rice mellow creme (earth balance too) I find the combination of the two make great marshmallow treats! Ten of his close guy friends came over for cartoons, and spent the night. It was a fun time!

    This is so great. I really, really hope my 7-year-old still wants to have a party at home in 10 years- that is so freaking sweet.

    i think i’ve commented this every time you posted anything about this party but I LOVE the theme! And that cake turned out to great! I’m really thinking about taking this idea and having a cartoon and cereal party too.

    Liz, aw goodness thank you so much! I try–but no one is perfect, I just want my boys to have a fun time growing up and love being able to share all the kooky things I love with them. But thank you, your comment was so so sweet
