Trucks or Fish

This year in December Max will be turning three and I've been thinking about his party for a few months now. Like I mentioned on Monday he is crazy about trucks. Garbage trucks, construction trucks, monster trucks, he loves them all. So I figured a truck party was an absolute no-brainer.

Apparently not. I was talking to Max about his party the other day and he all of a sudden told me he wanted a fish party.

I was completely thrown. So I videoed our conversation (like any good blogger would!).



He'd just woken up, so he was still a little fuzzy and cuddly :)

Which leaves me with a decision to make. Do I throw him a truck party or a fish party?  I really want to start getting things organised because at the time of his birthday I will have a two week old newborn. Better to be prepared early for this one I think!

I have some great ideas pinned for both (all images are from these two pinboards, or you can click the link below each photo to go straight to the source).

I really like both themes, so I'd be happy to do either party. I think what I'll do is show Max these pictures, ask him again which party he wants and then stick with the one he chooses. Who knows if that will actually work (toddlers are so fickle!), but fingers crossed it does. Wish me luck!

  1. I think it will have fishy party by the sounds of it. But if your little man is anything like mine he will change his mind at the last minute.

    1. That's what I'm worried about Prue! It was so much easier before he had an opinion :)

  2. He is too cute! I love that he wants a fish birthday! I vote fish! It's a little different and I like it. Although I can definitely understand wanting to do trucks if you've been planning it in your head for a while! :) Either way I'm sure he'll be very happy. I wonder if he'll stick with the fish, we shall see!

    1. Time will tell Britni! He's going fishing for the first time with his Pop this weekend so I think fish may be here to stay. I'm getting excited about it though, I can think of so many fun fishy activities :)

  3. Oh he is just awesome. Don't you love it when they throw you off balance. "
    Well... fish gets my vote. I love your fish inspirations pins! So refreshing and that theme will come out really nice and easy with the party decorations,lolly bags etc too.

    1. I'm definitely coming around to the idea Germaine. I prefer the fishy colour scheme and it will be a lot of fun :)

  4. How adorable- he seemed quite clear about the fish in the video, and he seems very persuasive. I vote you ask him in a week and go with whatever he chooses :) Good luck, I love planning parties.
