Birthday Traditions

Here are a few things that I have adopted to be Birthday Traditions. I wish I would have started them from the get go, but I can do them from now on.

BIRTHDAY BOOK COUNTDOWN

WATCH THEM GROW WALL DISPLAY


PICK YOUR CAKE

Dinner too.

BIRTHDAY BANNER

May seem silly, but it means a lot to the kids-as integral to the decorations as balloons. When I asked what we should get Pop for his birthday, the daughter said, "a birthday banner".

FLOWER DELIVERY
Daddy gets the girl a bouquet every year. {I am thinking the son would like a delivery of candy.}

BIRTHDAY INTERVIEW
Series of questions to be asked each year on the big day.

See an example here.

I would LOVE to hear about your traditions too.


Please check out some of these fabulous linky parties. Wonderful ideas and inspiration await! Thank you!

I love these ideas and how special they must make the birthday person feel. I might have to start this in our family!

I like making birthday specials! It's the one and only day that belongs to 'you'!
