May is a beautiful month to celebrate a birthday. Flowers and plants are starting to spring up and bursts of color can be seen in many gardens. For those of you who will be planning a birthday for someone this month, here are some fresh ideas to brighten up your celebration.
Add flowers, if you are blessed to have a garden where you can snip a few seasonal flowers maybe daffodils or tulips, these can be a beautiful accent in a vase on your birthday table. Markets or grocery stores should carry them and usually can be purchased fairly inexpensively for a small bunch. If you have access to other flowers with heads that can easily be snipped off they can look fabulous floating in a crystal dish. Add a few jewel stones or clear beads for sparkle. Simple touches make parties special.
Hosting a birthday party around a floral theme can either be quite simple or you can make it as sophisticated as you'd like. A few ideas that are popular for floral invitations are Sunflowers, Daffodils, Daisies and Tulips. You can visit the 'floral birthday invitation' page for more ideas around this theme.
Add some whimsical touches like a floral birthday banner, napkins, plates in a floral pattern and maybe pretty floral party favor boxes for table decorations. Birthdays are a time to have fun and make special memories with friends and family, so don't stress just enjoy the time together. People remember the party not always so much of the details.
If it's a child's birthday you're planning this month, flowers and bugs are a fun theme. Ladybugs are popular with little girls and boys seem to like crawly bugs and worms! (Gummy worms)
Small terracotta pots can be filled with crushed Oreo cookies and you can add gummy worms and cute gummy bugs poking out the top. Have the kids make this as a take home craft. Wouldn't they have fun with this!
