When I was a child, my mom’s birthday parties were known for being amazing. They were always at home, never the arcade or restaurant parties some of my friends had. And my mom always cooked all the food and planned all the games herself.
As a parent myself, I loved throwing the same types of parties, and coming up with different themes was one of my favourite activities. My oldest son still talks about his DIY Super Mario Brothers birthday party five years ago to this day!
