Birthday Party

Birthdays can get crazy with themed decorations, games, clowns, ponies, etc. Take a deep breath and just serve pizza and a really good cake. They’ll love it as much as all that other stuff (except ponies). 

Tip  Make a PB Cup Cake!

Slather on chocolate frosting for a festive peanut-butter-cup cake. The kids will love it!
