So we all know that our little ones will be turning 3 in February. So I thought it would be fun to swap birthday theme ideas for our preschoolers. Yep they are now preschoolers, they're no longer considered toddlers. Boy are our kids growing up fast.

My daughter is having a princess party. We are having mostly family and a few friends. There will only be 4 kids including my daughter. The rest are adults (grandparents, aunts, uncles). She has been set on a princess party for months now. She will be wearing her cinderella dress and has other princess dress up clothes for her friends. Next year we will do something bigger and invite her pre-school friends, but for now it is almost all family. I still do decorations, but I pick them up through out the year so we don't have the expense all at once. Same thing with items for the party bags. That way, she can't change her mind over and over. Got some great deals on princess party supplies last fall.
The part is this Sunday and will last 2 hours. Family will probaly be here earlier or stay later but that is fine with us. We are doing veggies/dip, crackers/cheese, and a fruit tray with drinks. And of course cake and ice cream. My husband wants to do a few hot appetizers so that is his deal. We work together and divide tasks.
The last 2 years have been fun and I am sure this year will be too.
Happy Birthday Feb. Kiddos. :0)

I'm doing a pirate themed party. Having the treasure chest, hats, eye patches and any thing else we can think of too. (including walking the plank which was daughters idea!)
Im making a pirate ship for her cake so lets hope I pull through.

We are going to do a car theme. We invited our friends who have kids the same age who all are in the same church class. I am going to just make a race track looking cake and put matchbox cars on it. Including adults and siblings I am looking at maybe 20 people and I put a time frame of 2 hours on it. Thought about letting parents drop them off as we are all close but rethought that. This will work better and the adults will get a great time of fellowship too. With pizza and pop it should still come in under $100

It's freezing out so pool parties, playgrounds and parks are out of the question for us here in Georgia. We are planning a McDonald's Birthday Party for Abigail's big number 3! They have some kind of deal for the kids including happy meals and a cake with icecream for under $100 I think. I have heard that it's like $50 for 8 children. How perfect! No cooking and all the kids will be worn out from playing on the indoor playplace. All the grown-ups can chit chat while all the kids run wild!

I have twins a boy and girl. So our parties have been very subdue up to now. This year for their 3rd we are having a Toy Story/Tinker Bell party. This is what they are right into at the moment. It wont be a huge party just family and a few friends. It will just be in our backyard too.

We use to do big parties, but they are expensive! We have 6 kids, so our birthday treat is dinner at a restaurant (and that's a nice break for me, too!). We bring our presents to the restaurant, and any family in the area joins us. The kids don't seem to miss the big parties.

I love the dress-up tea party idea! We're having a playgroup party (her birthday falls on a playgroup day this year) but the themes will either be Toy Story, Wall-e, or Tinkerbell. My DD keeps changing her mind...I guess that's what almost 4yr olds do..LOL

I haven't really decided yet but I am thinking about having a couple of my daughter's friends over and having a dress up tea party. I have lots of friends who have these great big parties with tons of people or really expensive elaborate parties. My child is turning 3 I think she will have just as much fun or more if she just has a few friends over. Any one else have any ideas?
