A frightful, delightful day of Nightmare Before Christmas dreams and birthday wishes come true

When I gave birth to my son Alijah, my water broke on Christmas Eve and he was born on Christmas morning. I decided The Nightmare before Christmas would be the perfect first birthday theme.

I invited Alijah’s friends to frolic in the Christmas tree-filled splendor — complete with a visit from Sandy Claws.

Comments on A frightful, delightful day of Nightmare Before Christmas dreams and birthday wishes come true

  1. 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 😉

    • 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.

  2. My due date is December 21st. This makes the possibility of a Christmas birthday a thousand times more bearable. 😀

    • 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!

  3. 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.

  4. AH! Such a great idea! Both my kiddos have December birthdays and I love themed parties. Oh yes, this is happening.
