Having a summer birthday isn’t always fun for kids, especially when there’s no opportunity to bring the traditional cupcakes into the classroom and friends may be scattered far and wide for summer vacations. Both of my kids, however, like or not, were born in the summer and we have done what we can to make the birthday party celebrations just as jubilant and fun-filled as they would be during the school year.
Every year for the last three years we have done a summer carnival for both the kids in our backyard – something that their friends have looked forward to and around which many of our friends plan their vacations. Everyone wants to be a part of our birthday carnival bash. Party supplies are obviously paramount in the fun; they make the whole carnival theme really come alive. But there is no way I would be able to get all the birthday party supplies I need by going the traditional route of shopping in a party supply store where the stock is limited and the prices are through the roof. Instead I have taken to shopping for discount party supplies online through a website that is never short on ideas or on items in stock. And their prices are the best that I have found online or off.
Now part of the planning process for our summer birthday carnival is ordering birthday party supplies online – something that my kids and I do together as a part of the traditional celebration. Finding discount party supplies online may not seem like that big of a deal but the truth is that the money I am able to save by shopping for discount party supplies online allows me to continue having this party every year and allows me to spend my money on other things to make the party spectacular.
