Birthday Bash: Isabelle turns 4!

November 19, 2012

Kid's birthday parties are a chance to celebrate one special child at one special moment in their life. There are some standard ingredients: invitations, party treats, fun activities, and gaggles of friends. Each element is infinitely customizable to age, hobbies and family tradition. Choosing a theme based on a child's interests (or obsessions?) is a way to cherish who they are at that exact age. With the ease of internet shopping, you can now get just about anything themed for your party. 

 
We have been flattered and honored to see Radio Flyer popping up as a classic childhood theme for many birthdays. Sometimes our kids' wagons are a small part of the decor, and some entire parties center around vintage red wagons or the Radio Flyer brand. We have been inspired to bring even more Radio Flyer birthday goodness to our fans by throwing our own themed celebration! Isabelle was turning 4 at just the right time, and she enthusiastically agreed to a Radio Flyer 4-year-old Birthday Party.
 
First, you need to get people to your party! Themed invites are a great sneak-peek for all the fun ahead. 
 
Birthday parties create warm memories. We made sure to capture those with a photo booth. Red and white balloons made a great backdrop. If you get a shot of each guest with the birthday girl or boy, the photos make a great token to add to thank you notes!
 
 
No party is complete without some sweets. We decorated this kid-sized table and put out a reachable candy bar for party guests. Filling up your own goody bag definitely works up an appetite!
 
 
Luckily our party was in the summer so we could play games outside the whole time! We had scooter races, pin the wheel on the wagon and a bean bag toss. 
 
 
All that playing sure worked up some big appetites in these little partiers. #4 PB&J sandwiches, Wagonade, and of course cupcakes got them right back into party mode. 
 
 
One of our Build-A-Wagons made a prefect present pile foundation. Every guest got a little wagon love too! We filled up mini-wagons with outdoor fun: a jump rope, chalk, a flashlight, bubbles and a firefly jar to use as summer waned down.
