I didn’t really have birthday parties as a kid, so the first big party I’d been a major part of was my son’s first birthday last August. It was simple, but fun!
My 21st birthday! It was a surprise and there were SO many people that came!
It was my 13th B-day I had a huge sleep over & we made a ton of noice!
The best birthday memory I have is of my big 3-0! My husband threw a surprise party for me and I was so shocked! I am not on blogger so I could not figure out how to follow you but I have bookmarked your site! Great scores at Safeway!!
I have so many fond memories of my birthday parties when I was a kid… my mum did them “the old fashioned” way – balloons on the mailbox, pass the parcel, pin the tail, hiding candy in the backyard, BBQs, treat bags etc. We never had “event” parties or expensive parties, but they were FUN. And now that I am in my 20’s my friends still occasionally mention how fun my mum made those parties!
With my own littles now the pressure is on!!
didn’t have parties as a kid but my sons 5th was awesome with the ballons and the friends and we swam and had a blast
clicked on diaper daddy- lol at the tongs
I friend once threw me a surprise birthday. It was truly a surprise.
Happy Birthday Will
My 40th birthday was wonderful. We had a big cook out in the backyard with a bunch of friends and family plus my husband gave me a surprise trip to Paris oolala.
My sis-in-laws’ 40th had a kickin’ live band, a pool party and beer!
My parents rented a roller skating rink for my 8th birthday! It was awesome! summe21 @ aol.com

I would love to win. We recently had my 3 year old daughters birthday at Build a bear. It was a lot of fun and nice as no cleanup for me
My 21st birthday was my golden birthday and it was on a Friday. Nough said
when my girlfriends took me to the all male review
Well. . . I have had two birthday parties in my life. They were both to be surprises, but neither were. The first was when I was 10, and the second when I was 19. The 19th was put on by good friends, and was far better than the 10th.
My 16th Birthday party, seems the whole school was there, I had no idea, my mom got my best friend to do the invite, and the best part was, I am crazy for the band kiss and gene is my favorite and my mom had an awsome cake of gene simmons in the makeup done for me, must have cost a small fortune, I Loved it and had a ball, I will never forget, I am 40 now and my friends still talk about that party

The first year we were dating my hubby gave me a surprise party. This year is going to be a big one: 4-0. With a HUGE seafood fiesta!
Birthdays were pretty low-key when I was a kid, so I would have to say my favorite memories are of my son’s birthday parties. I spend the whole year planning for them, and I love it!
I can’t remember my favorite , but i can remember a b-day party that stood out above the rest. Well , i love ketchup . And this one year , my day wrapped up and gave me a big bottle of ketchup ! 🙂
My 8th birthday was a big backyard carnival with clowns, games, and all of my friends from school. It was a lot of work for my mom I think but a lot of fun.
I had a fun skating party when I was 10
When I came home from a trip and my mom in law, husband, and kids had a surprise party waiting for me. 🙂
My 16th birthday. I came home from school to a car with a huge red bow on it and all of my family waiting there witha cake. It was am amazing day!
I never had parties as a kid, but I’ve had pizza every time since I was 2, so that is my special tradition.
My 21st birthday my entire family surprised me at Hibatchi, a restaurant that I had been DYING to go to. It was quite a nice surprise and I had no idea!

I had a great slumber party with a bunch of friends in 5th grade. After that we went to middle school & you know how girls can be. It was a good party!
I JUST wished Eva a happy birthday!
my favorite birthday party memorie was my first kiss at my 11th birthday.
Oh definetly my 21st! It was teh crazziest night of my life…would I do it again? NEVER! lol
I LOVE to plan parties, I always think ahead to the next party for my kids or next party that I just want to do! My fav as a child was when my dad took 8 of us girls who were in 2nd grade out on our range land in Montana to have a hot dog roast!
At my 13 year old sleepover party, we scared ourselves silly with Arachnophobia! It was so fun.
The last party I had was my fourteenth, wow, so so long ago. ha, but it was a luau and a lot of fun. my uncle was the d-jay.
my 30th it was such a surprise!
My Mom used to get me this angel food-like chocolate cake with mint icing from Bennison’s Bakery for my birthday amd it was the best!
Most of my funny memories are of my kids being brats. It’s funny now that they’re older but not then. One time my four year old was giving the clown we hired a hard time over I don’t even remember what. Another time we had a graduation party and the 3rd son was teasing the 4th son and when he missed hitting the pinata my husband had to carry the youngest one in who was throwing a temper tantrum of a lifetime.

Wishing Isabella a Happy 9th Birthday on February 19th
going out for pizza and a movie on my birthday.
when my husband hired a male stripper for me and my girlfriends
My favorite birthday was a sleepover complete with mini-makeovers and a midnight candy bar.i was 8.
I never had parties as a kid, but my biggest memory of going to one was being told at 5 years old that I was the wrong kid and invited by mistake!
My favorite birthday party was at Showbiz Pizza when I turned 6 years old! We almost never had big birthday parties so that one stands out.
My favorite birthday party moment was when I was 10 years old. I had stiches on my chin at the time so my dad put on my birthday cake happy birthday rat,lol, because he said the stiches string looked like rat hairs. Thanks, Godesseablu@msn.com
