8 year olds are picky…and they definitely have an opinion on what is “cool” and “un-cool”. Graffiti is “cool” in my son’s opinion…so, we decided on a graffiti style party focusing on blues and yellows.
The hardest part of every party for me is the invitation. I turned to Paige of Paiges of Style to create a custom invitation. Creating an invitation for an 8 year old boy that is cool AND that his mother likes is NOT an easy task. Paige nailed it.
You should have seen the smile on Aidan’s face when he saw the invite!
The party itself was simple…a bunch of crazy 8 year olds, some front yard football, pizza, lots of sweets and a couple episodes of Wipeout! The front yard football was not a planned part of the party…but it was a great way to start. It also kept all of the boys occupied while everyone was arriving.
The pizza & dessert table was a huge hit…
The cookie cake towers were gone in a matter of seconds…
Such a simple way to make a “cake”… I baked a large cookie cake and cut it into squares. I stacked them with buttercream icing in between each layer. I colored two chopsticks black with a sharpie and attached the word “Eight” with thread. It served as the perfect “cake topper”.

I will post more next week on how to make your own graffiti-style backdrop, as well as the graffiti baseball hat party favors:)
Have a great weekend!
