My college boy celebrated his birthday at A&M. It was hard on this mama to not be there. His birthday was in the middle of the week of State Testing. As a teacher, I was not allowed to even take the day off. Ugh! So, what's a mama to do? Send a party in a box to one of his buddies! First, I decorated the inside of the box with bright fun scrapbook paper and washi tape! Next, I added party favors from Dollar Tree! I bought hats, blowy thingys, whistles shaped like airplanes, balloons, etc. I had old leftover Bob the Tomato cups that I added. Next, I added packets of lemonade and chocolate chocolate chip cookies! I added a banner from Dollar Tree that says "Happy Birthday!" Then, I added birthday confetti! I made a banner strung across the box and taped it to the sides! And, I mailed it to his buddy so he wouldn't just open it up in the mailroom and not share his party. My acomplise sent me photos and a video!
