It's fun to buy party decorations, but there are also ways to simply jazz up the things you already have. We love Marissa's idea to decorate family photographs around her home in honor of her son's birthday celebration.
Find some decorative paper and go to town. Marissa chose a birthday hat and balloons, but this is really an idea you could use for any holiday - think reindeer antlers, a witch's hat, flags, bunny ears, etc.
Thanks, Marissa! Her adorable photos weren't the only great thing about Marissa's party for her son, Logan. You can see more of Logan's party including a make-your-own monster-puppet activity here.
