The Brighter Side
My son is turning 4. I asked him what kind of a party he wanted. His reply, "an alligator birthday party!" Sounded simple enough... as long as I gave myself at least a month to plan it. So what's the first thing I do... I "Googled" Alligator Birthday Party. The first thing that popped up was "Swamp Party". So that's where it all began!
First the cake. I put it out there on Facebook if any of my friends knew someone who could do a Swamp Cake. I was flooded with resources of people who design cakes. Now the hard task of going through all the names of talented cake artists. I couldn't believe how competitive the cake industry was. So many cakes to choose from. But one really stood out for me. Sugar By Tracy. A mom of two adorable children who bakes out of her home. Tracy's cakes blew me away. So I put her up to the task! She was game and came up with this!

She's also exceptionally talented. Not only can she help you with your birthday theme, but she's can help you with logo design, packaging, promotional materials, trade show booth elements, advertising and now magazine design. (I'm currently working with Jaime on the Brighter Business Empower Magazine. She's a dedicated worker, a passionate artist and an amazing designer.)
Then pick one game. As my house was full of 4-8 year olds, they only had the attention span for one game. And my 6 year old actually came up with this one, Pin The Alligator In The Nest. The grass (nest) came from the dollar store along with the board to put it on.
A little time and effort on your part and you'll have a GREAT themed birthday party. I also want to thank GOOGLE for allowing me to have ideas at my fingertips!
