party themes make a comeback {Birthday Express}

Before it happened to me, I had no idea how stressful a first birthday could be.  You know they won’t remember a bit of it but there is this intense pressure to make it special, nonetheless.  It is their first birthday and they will never have another — well, until next year.

The most important question when beginning to plan a party is theme or no themeTheme has become a bit of a dirty word over the years due to the sheer lack of options.  It used to be if you wanted a theme, you only had a few to choose from and they were only the most popular of licensed characters.  This led to boring, photocopy birthday parties, a real dime a dozen.

Luckily, a mom has real options these days to set her kid’s party apart from the neighbor’s.  Take Birthday Express for example.  When I saw an opportunity to review this online party superstore, I was skeptical.  Then I took a stroll through their themes.  My skepticism quickly faded and I was left wondering which of literally 5 perfect themes to choose.  Impressive!

Birthday Express offers themes way beyond the typical, beyond anything you will find in your local party supply stores.  Most importantly, they sell party packs in varying package sizes to give you a strong base for your party plans.  You can also add party supplies a la carte, creating a more custom order to suit your baby’s big day.

When this review opportunity came along, I was at the very end of my pregnancy, expecting my baby boy in a week or so.  I saw this as a great opportunity to find awesome Welcome Home decor, the original birthday.  Not knowing which TV show or even color my little lad would soon fancy the most, I went with the Goodnight Moon 1st Birthday theme.  One cannot go wrong with Goodnight Moon, right?

After you choose your theme you have to decide on the package: classic or deluxe, for 8 or 16.  I went with the Goodnight Moon Deluxe Party Pack for 8, which included an impressive collection of quality items for 8 guests:

  • invitations, thank you cards, party hats
  • dinner plates, dessert plates, cups, forks, spoons, napkins, tablecover
  • centerpiece, streamers (3 colors), 18 balloons (3 colors), foil balloon, curling ribbon (3 colors)
  • cake candles, #1 candle

This pack was absolutely awesome, and so easy to set up.  I had a rather impressive set up done in an hour using just items from the party pack.  I also had the Good Night Moon Personalized Banner, which added a real nice touch.  It is still proudly displayed in my dining room, partially because I’m too exhausted with a newborn to take it down.  With the basics handled, I had the extra time to put into special decor items, cake and other treats.

If you have a birthday coming up to plan for, head over to Birthday Express.  Make your life a little easier and get the basics for the table and decor handled in one easy purchase.  Then you can focus on those time-consuming Pinterest crafts and treats to really make your party unique.

    Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you? That’s right AUTOMATICALLY, just watch this 4minute video for more information at. Seo Plugin
