3 birthdays, party planning

It’s almost that time of year again, where my babies turn a whole year older. I am desperately planning two parties in one weekend. I think I must be mad!

If you’re new to reading my blog, you may not know about the ‘uniqueness’ of my family. To sum it up…….

I have 3 children, 2 of which are twins. 2 of my children share a birthday, but not my twins’!

Yes, that’s right, my twins have separate birthdays, as they were born over midnight (one and a half hours apart), and my second twin was born on my sons 2nd birthday! This makes things quite difficult. I have never fully settled on when to celebrate each birthday. So far they have all had a shared party, which has worked well. However, this year I thought it was about time BB had his own party, hence the 2 parties in one weekend.

The twins are having a hello kitty craft party on the saturday at home and BB is having a bowling party on the sunday. Luckily the bowling party is mostly done for us, I only need to make the cake and turn up. However, the twins party will take a lot more effort. Luckily, my mum is organising the crafts, so I have time to think about the party bags, games, food and cakes.

I like to make extra work for myself, as I believe each child should have their own birthday cake and I like to make them novelty ones, so I am currently trying to think how I can make 2 hello kitty cakes and a space cake all in one weekend! I panic before hand, but I usually get there in the end. Last year I made a whole gingerbread house cake and two heart cakes. They looked great and the children had a fab birthday, so I’m keeping my fingers crossed I can pull it off again this year.

  1. I often thought that twins not being born on the same day must happen from time to time. I wonder if any have been born in separate academic years (Aug 31st/Sept 1st) or even across a new year!

  2. That is amazing! Little E is born on my mum’s birthday (this Sunday) and Bump is being born by C section tomorrow on Husband’s birthday. I also have my Dad’s birthday on Saturday so it is quite a week for us but my goodness you have a busy 2 days! Good luck with your 3 cakes! Xx

    Wow! I assumed twins could be born on different days but never actually knew any that were….How amazing!! Happy birthday to all 3!! Hope they have a great party x

  11. This must be such hard work but I completely understand why you do it. With Grace’s birthday on 2nd Jan I always make sure that the Christmas decorations are down and that’s hard enough! Thank you for linking to PoCoLo x
