Kai turns 8 today!! His glow in the dark bowling party is this Saturday! I’m planning a lot of fun DIYs for it. I’ll show a few on my blog and a few on Momtastic.com. Stay tuned for more!

I love garland. It adds a festive feel to parties. That’s why I had to make one. I love how the lightning bolt is a sub theme of the party and a nod bowling.
