Themed Birthday Gift ... Spring has Sprung

This weekend Cole had been invited to TWO parties of course at the same time and day!  So I had to split our time between the two parties.  Personally I would have loved to stay all day at the second party (of course for a Girl so Cole gave me the face that he had to go). The mom and her best friend were so much fun, I wish I could have stayed longer to maybe make friends .. LOL I'm so needing a Girl Friend.

I texted to RSVP for the event (because you know that is my crazy pet peeve that people don't do that) and asked what theme.  She let me know Spring / Hello Kitty.  So this girl went on a theme hunt!  You know me by now and my love for a theme!  This actually I must say is one of my favorite gifts I've made in a long time.


What you need:
Bucket (I found a pink one with flowers and Butterflies)
Spring Sign
Bubbles
Chalk
Flip Flops
Note Cards
Pinwheel
Flower Toy
Candy
Homemade Cookies
Stickers / Coloring Book
Large Clear Gift Bag
Ribbon
Card Stock (if you want to add tag)

Arrange all items in the bucket.  I put it in clear bag and tied it with a nice ribbon that reminded me of spring.  I found this cute FREE Printable for a Spring Bucket List on Love Bakes Good Cakes that I added to the ribbon before I tied it up.   You can really do anything you want with the bucket.  I just found all things that reminded me of spring, then a few Hello Kitty items I found.  Most items can be found at Dollar Store or Michael's Dollar Bin.

NOW of course I couldn't just leave it as is!  I had to bake some cookies (recipe and pictures to come soon) but if you're looking for a yummy recipe I made Banana Chocolate Chip Cookies.


Do you Theme Gift?

Thanks for Stopping by!
