So Creed's long been obsessed with OK Go music videos so when the topic of birthday party themes came up, it should be no surprise that he embraced the idea of a marching band birthday party. He's seen this music video approximately 30 thousand times and it does look like a lot of fun.
I love Miroslav Sasek's This Is book series and I've always thought the Guard on the cover of This Is London looks like he could be in a marching band so I redrew it and tried to copy Sasek's font to write "This is a Party"
Since Creed was turning five, we let him invite five friends, and we asked them to wear red, white, and blue.
I didn't do too much to decorate, but I did put up a new birthday themed chalk drawing (I don't know who did this original illustration, but isn't it great? I found it in a old piano book from the 50's)
Several months later, the "Creed is awesome" garland is still hanging in our kitchen, because he is indeed very awesome.
