In honor of today’s special event (aka My Birthday), I’ve hunted online for items that I think would make for a pretty good birthday party. It’s too late for me (why didn’t I think of this earlier?!) but perhaps you’ll spot something in time for your birthday. Which I would like to be invited to, especially if it includes any of the items below.
1. Happy Birthday Dog Balloon Card by CheekyKumquat on Etsy
Wanna know what animal shapes I can make out of balloons? None. Most people would say “a snake” or something, but I can’t even get those stupid long, skinny balloons to inflate. I would totally fail clown college. Is there a trick to it that I never learned?! Doesn’t matter, because apparently even hand-drawn balloon animals are fun, especially on the front of cards. Everyone loves birthday cards. And balloon animals. It’s a match made in heaven.
2. Hand-Painted Dog Wine Glasses by PottyPittyBells on Etsy
My plain, dog-free, unpainted wine glasses just seem embarrassing now that I know these awesome ones exist. *crash* *smash* What’s that? Oh, you know, just cleaning out the cupboard so I can fit some proper glassware in here.
“AJ, I don’t get it… how is a French Bulldog sweatshirt birthday-related?”, you ask? Well, because if I owned this sweatshirt, I would definitely wear it to my birthday party. But I don’t own it. And now I have absolutely nothing to wear. Now I hate everything I own more than Lu hates his toys after dark.
4. Snoopy the Red Baron Cake Pan by Wilton
This is probably the coolest cake pan that I have ever seen in my life. I don’t know how to decorate cakes, but I would learn if I had this cake pan. And everyone who had a birthday would get a Snoopy cake from now on. Because who doesn’t love Snoopy? (Side note: I couldn’t find this on the actual Wilton website. And then I found it on Amazon and it was $100. And then I found it on eBay and it was much, much cheaper, so if you decide you need a Snoopy cake pan too, eBay is the way to go.)
