For the past couple of years, my husband and I (Sarah Y.) have hosted a summer kick-off party and invited different friends and some of my husband's co-workers. Well, that time of year is quickly appraching and I have been brainstorming ideas for this year's celebration. Jess from polkadots & pirates featured a birthday party that she did for her son back in February. I LOVED it then and it is offering lots of inspiration to me now as I brainstorm our next backyard celebration. This would be a great theme for a summer birthday party as well. Check it out here for more pictures.
