Our little Will requested a Duck Dynasty theme birthday party this year! It was his seventh birthday and also his "golden birthday!" I wanted it to be so special! And it sure was!
I have put together some highlights of our day!
This party was one of the best I have ever planned ~ and it was the first party my kids and my husband were so active in the party planning stages! *That was great! But what I enjoyed the most was seeing the three of them outside together making the duck blind...those boys will never forget that, nor will they ever forget the memories made, neither will I!
This was also the least expensive party I have ever planned or given! Yes sir, that was great too! I also learned how to paint camouflage! I learned a lot...
If you are in the party planning stages of your own, take a look...you may be surprised at how easy it is to pull this off!
The Weatherly's don't know how to make duck calls, but we sure know how to make memories!
The party was about as authentic "Duck Dynasty" as we could make it. (minus the beaver in the sink or fresh frog legs on my table!) Wigs, face paint, camo, bandannas beards, guns, targets, duck blind, duck decoys, jambalaya, sweet potato pies, (actually pumpkin, couldn't find sweet potato pies, and okay, okay, I surely don't know how to bake one!) banana pudding, mallow dogs, ham "sammiches," potato salad, baked beans and sweet tea were on the menu!
But most importantly, we had FAITH, FAMILY & FRIENDS! I am SO SO SO grateful for that! Happy Happy Happy!!!
Here we go! Hope you enjoy!!!
