I LOVE parties. I love entertaining, I love planning, I love decorating, I love celebrating… I just love them. I usually make a big deal for birthdays of the ones I love! I’m also a bit of a control freak if you couldn’t tell. That’s why it was hard for me to let GRAYSON plan Tyler’s birthday party (yep, you heard me), but G was so excited to choose everything that it was totally adorable.We decided to get together at our friend Bruce’s house, since he has a great yard for outdoor fun. So, instead of a perfectly Pinterested birthday party, I give you- Tyler’s Birthday as styled by a six year old boy. He decided that Tyler loves Avengers and Star Wars, so it was kind of a hybrid of the two. Two movies they have seen together and loved were The Avengers, and the newest Star Wars movie, so Grayson just knew this would be the best option.
Not just a simple party hat would do, we had to have Avenger masks. You will notice lots of purple because that is one of Tyler’s favorite colors and Grayson was insistent that we get whatever we can purple. Tyler’s gift from Grayson was a hodge podge of things Grayson picked out from the store all by himself, but the main gift was a Star Wars lego set. I mean. Could he be any sweeter?!
We grilled steaks, corn on the cob and asparagus per Tyler’s request, and finished with strawberry shortcake. Tyler had his favorite, Milo’s Cafe Style Tea. His favorite is sweet iced tea, of course, a true Southern man.
This tea is a new, affordable, organic option of Milo’s tea. There are actually four flavors including a couple of “light” options: Sweet, Light Sweet, Green Citrus, Light Green Citrus. These are fresh brewed, all natural teas with no preservatives, no additives and no acids. Café Style teas are brewed from USDA Certified organic tea leaves and are sweetened with organic sugar or lightly sweetened with organic stevia. You can find it in the store with the refrigerated juices, due to it being all natural. I found mine at Walmart, but you can click here to find a store near you that carries it.
The afternoon was perfect, complete with bocce ball, relaxing in the ENO, listening to music, and an epic silly string battle (another family birthday tradition). Tyler could not have been more pleased with his birthday. It was rather tacky and all over the place, but it meant so much more because it came from the mind of our sweet G.
