The best thing about birthdays are the party. 2012 is not a monumental celebration year that deserves a party but I have been storing some ideas for all the future biggies.
Etsy is an awesome source for party items: straws, cupcake liners, cake toppers, cups, etc.
I love these photographs. Any year would be well deserving of this great idea.
Ohnuts.com has tons of candy options, perfect for a color coordinated candy bar
Upside down balloons made with marbles inside. Genius!
These balloons rock! Great, cheap decor!
