A Week of Birthday Celebrations!

I was planning some interesting and thoughtful provoking conversations
however i will wait until next week because
today begins my Birthday Celebration Week!
Actually, Wednesday is my actual birthday
however i thought i would celebrate the entire week on my blog.
There will be cake, candles, balloons, dancing, friends,
family, pancakes, love, laughter and of course giveaways!!! 
  And many pictures from pinterest!
Hope you join me in the fun.

Today i begin with birthday traditions.
______________________________   ___________________

In the Team Pancakes' household, there are a few requirements
traditions to celebrate a birthday!

First tradition, there has to be a birthday cake. 
(you thought i was going to say pancakes right..pancakes are usually for breakfast)!
 I love chocolate cakes so anything chocolate is ideal. 
Mr. Pancakes got me the bestest oreo cake one year. 
 It was delicious. 
It is not a birthday without cake.

Second tradition, candles!
It's important to have candles to blow because of course you have to make a wish. 
You can never have too many candles.
Not like a bazillion candles but enough to make the cake look awesome
and the person to enjoy making their wish.

Third tradition, are balloons. 
Ballons always make for a festive mood!
You are never too young to have balloons!

Final tradition, is of course sharing our birthday with loved ones (friends and family). 
I have never been one to celebrate my birthday in a big way but i always like to do something small with a few special people.  You have not celebrated a birthday
and another year God has blessed you without sharing it amongst friends.

There you have, the four requirements traditions for an awesome birthday at the Team Pancakes' household.

So friends, what do you require to celebrate your birthday?!
What are some of your birthday family traditions?

p.s: You have one more day before the end of the Thank You Giveaway!

ahh birthday weeks are the best!! My best friend bought me this GIGANTIC balloon this year. Problem is, he brought it to a nice, outdoor restaurant. The wind kept blowing and the balloon kept smashing my now ex-b/f in the head. It was hilarious!

Have an amazing birthday week :)

Yay I'm glad we get to be apart of your birthday week. Happy Birthday Week! I can't wait for you to share more throughout the week.

Birthday traditions in my house include a themed party for my girls with our close family. It's all about celebrating them even on my birthday because they are my life!

I'm not a birthday cake person. All I require is to be with my loved ones. Enjoy your birthday week!!

Lauren said...

happy birthday week! those are all requirements in my house too...minus except maybe the balloons! birthdays have always been a big deal in my family & I certainly intend to carry on that tradition!

Heather said...

Happy birthday week!! That cake looks SO yummy! On my birthday, I like to have dinner at whatever favorite restaurant I'm craving, along with a refreshing glass of wine. Then again, I like to do that anyway, birthday or not! :)

Happy Birthday week! CAKE is an absolutely must.
I actually also love traditional birthday cards, although people don't really send them much anymore.

How exciting! And celebrating with cake, candles, balloons... the works, is the only way to go.

Happy birthday week!!!!

Nicole said...

when i was growing up we did nothing to celebrate birthdays and because my birthday is 3 days before christmas it was almost like a reason not to celebrate my birthday. i never liked that feeling.
SO in my house, we always have a cake, we always sing Happy Birthday (our rendition), we always have candles, and if friends are around they can just come on by - the more the merrier. Everyone looks forward to their birthday!!!

Happy Birthday to you and many more!

Happy Birthday Week :)
I think it's a great idea to spend a whole week celebrating!
I'm going to do the same when my birthday rolls around again next year!

I like your birthday traditions! We haven't developed that many yet, but I definitely like to have candles on whatever dessert the birthday person chooses. And I always make my husband's favorite dinner :)

Faith said...
