Birthday Party Keepsake Idea

By  | Last Updated:  

Hi, it’s Michelle from Michelle’s Party Plan-It  here to share another party activity!  In February, my youngest son celebrated his 3rd birthday with a  “Sailing Away with Mickey” party. 

At past birthday celebrations I printed a large 12×12 photo with a space for all the guests to right a little note to him to be included with his scrapbook.  This year, to tie in the nautical theme, I decided on asking guests to leave him a message in the bottle that he will open in 30 years. 

I found the perfect corked glass bottle at Home Goods and I printed stationary with his name and the date on it for guests to handwrite their notes.  When he is 33 he may not remember the details of his cake, his decorations or the games we played, but I’d like him to know the most important detail, the people who attended his party.  For him to know he was surrounded by the ones who loved him most on his special day is a gift I hope he cherishes when he is a father himself someday.
