Lizards and Snakes and Spiders, oh my!

It doesn't get much more fun than 5-year old birthday parties. But I've done a lot of fun boy party themes over the years already, like; baseball, pirates, race cars, superheroes - to name some. I wanted to do something new and different and perfect for my newest 5-year old. This time is was all about Bo. So we decided on a reptile party - SO him. But not just any old reptile party...one with REAL reptiles!

So I sent out the invitations... and decorated reptile style...



I made a path of lizard tracks from the front door to the back patio where the party would take place...

And then let Mr. Lizard do the rest...












Of course there were party favors filled with reptile-y things...
And ONE VERY HAPPY BIRTHDAY BOY!

Wow. That makes me kind of glad my little guy would rather play with swords. However, that is a very cool birthday party. I think I would have been squealing most ofnthe party. :)

Such a FUN party! I can't believe how brave all those kids were...Elle would have been crying and running in the opposite direction if she saw any of the snakes :)

Oh my goodness! How fun! Bo is so lucky to have such a BRAVE and sweet mom! Are you kidding I'd be running in the other direction! A tarantula?

Can you believe John and Bo are 5?!! They are growing up so fast. I wish we were there to celebrate too. It looks like the best boy party ever! You do everything so cute, from the invites to the favors!
