Another year older...


Today, I am getting ready for my son's birthday sleepover....

As they get older, its a little harder to decorate...no more Thomas The Engine or Curious George. They really don't have a theme...well, sports but how many soccer cakes can one boy have. So this year I played on the "fishing" theme.

Used a tackle box to hold the candy...a few fish...some camflouage table clothes, a fishing reel and a cake with a Bass fish jumping out!

It's simple but fun and fits him! Plus growing boys just want to know where the food and pop is and what Wii game I rented...decorations are not on the top of their list~

That tackle box is such a cute idea for serving the gummy fish. My 10-year-old son is home sick with me today, and he definitely approved!
