My mother recently sent to me the pin-the-tail-on-the-donkey game used for several parties in our home. (I can’t believe she saved it all these years!) It has sweet vintage appeal and has me wondering: do kids still play this game? What happened to a good old fashioned birthday party? Do little girls still wear party dresses? With theme parties all the rage, is there such a thing as a birthday party themed party? Seems such a theme couldn’t be simpler. For your enjoyment, a round up of classic birthday party ideas.
