The Birthday and Party Planning Issue is Here!

It’s Party Time! 

I know party planning, especially birthday parties, can be a lot of work as a parent! My kids both have summer birthdays, and we did two types of parties this year! Jaxson was all about heading to Galaxy Gaming and having Pizza Ranch delivered, while Khloe wanted a big backyard birthday bash with an inflatable from Bounce Around Inflatables and Snow Cone Machine from ABC Rentals. Nate gives me a hard time that I go overboard, which I do. But I love celebrating birthdays in our house and it doesn’t matter if it is the kids, Motley, or Nate – we are going to do something.  

In this issue, we created a list of the best party venues and party services that can make your event extra fun! Whether you are planning something simple or going for an over-the-top party this year, we have the resources to help! And we connected with local parents for some great articles in this issue around party planning and growing up. 

If you don’t have a party to plan in the next few months, don’t worry! The great thing is you can keep our October issue on hand, or you can head over to to find the Party Planning Directory on our website all year long. No matter what month your birthday is in, we will have the ideas waiting here to make it a success.   

We didn’t forget about Halloween! If you are all about Halloween and party planning, we have many fun crafts, snacks, and games in our bonus digital pages and at
