Aj Turns 11
This dude turned 11 in August, we waited until September to host his camo birthday party so that he could invite some friends. Aj loves anything to do with the American Flag, camo or similar themes when it comes to a birthday party so I had a feeling when given the opportunity to select his theme with Oriental Trading that camo would be the pick.
Guests Were Invited
We invited guests and waited on the camo birthday party day for them to arrive. The party was from 12:30pm to 2pm so only cake and ice cream were served. We did similarly to what we did for his brother, but instead of a mustache pinata, we had a tank pinata.
My teen helped to fill the tank pinata with assorted candy options, boy was that pinata heavy at the camo birthday once filled but it held up just fine. We worked on the back deck to get a spot ready for the hanging of the pinata and we worked inside to get the table setup and camo birthday decor ready.
Camo Birthday Theme Awesome
It was really cool all of the camo birthday options available at Oriental Trading. We opted for gliders, that we raced off of the back deck, bracelets and little tins that guests could put their pinata candy in and bring home with them. We used the camo birthday party pack from Oriental Trading, it is the most cost effective way to go.
The teen started to decorate Aj’s birthday cake best she could since we cannot seem to find our cake decorating supplies. The cake was enjoyed by all and so was the ice cream.
Happy Birthday Aj
As Aj gets older he doesn’t seem to mind us singing happy birthday and so we did. He was diagosed high functioning autistic (aspergers) in 2008. Some things he never enjoyed growing up were the happy birthday song and too much attention placed on him but at age 11, he’s come so far!
Camo Birthday Pinata
The camo birthday was a hit, the guests had fun and I sent the guests home with candy because I guess I am that type of Mama. I am happy that after a couple of years not throwing the boys’ a birthday party that we were able to throw a party that both boys enjoyed. If you missed it, K-man had his mustache theme party and you can go read about how fun that was too.
What type of theme would your kids or grandkids enjoy for their birthday?
