A frightful, delightful day of Nightmare Before Christmas dreams and birthday wishes come true #Families#babies#birthday parties#birthdays August 16 | Guest post by Nicole P All photos by Nicole P.

AMAZING!!!!!!!! 6 agree Reply Whoa. 1 agrees Reply This is officially on the list of my favorite things. Wow. 2 agree Reply So awesome! 2 agree Reply I never used to have regrets about being born four days after Christmas. Now I find myself wanting a party like this! 1 agrees Reply AWESOME!!! Did you DIY the decorations or find them somewhere? My son's bday is Halloween and his name is Jack. Coincidence? I think not 😉 1 agrees Reply Besides the obvious store-bought items like the cut-out of Jack and Sally, and the stuffed characters, everything was made by hand. I will not take credit for the handmade decor though! Ha! I have visions, but rarely can make them come to fruition by myself. My favorite – and least expensive — were the spider web paper placemats. Reply My due date is December 21st. This makes the possibility of a Christmas birthday a thousand times more bearable. 😀 2 agree Reply Christmas will always be more special with a due date that close! Those of us with children with a birthday near the holidays just have to work a little harder 😉 My plan is it is always his birthday first, then after we sing "Happy Birthday" it can be Christmas. Congratulations on your little on! 1 agrees Reply I like this plan! Reply Soooo.. (probably due to my NMBC addiction) I found my self singing in my head as I read the "What's this" sign. >.< Favorite. Party. Ever. Reply AH! Such a great idea! Both my kiddos have December birthdays and I love themed parties. Oh yes, this is happening. Reply Join the conversation Cancel Reply Your email address will not be published.
