On Saturday we celebrated Andre’s 8th birthday WWE style at Dave & Buster’s in the Palisades Mall. Our dearest family & friends were there with us. It was a fun day. The kids exerted energy playing games, eating & just having a grand ole time.
Dave & Busters were great in assisting me with the booking of the party. Each kid received a $10 game play card. I chose 2 food items off the menu & unlimited drinks. We had 2 party platters of food for the adults. Our server was courteous, and super helpful. We arrived 15 minutes late due to traffic, so they didn’t “kick” us out at our 2pm cut off which I was pleased about. They weren’t booked for another party till later that evening so basically we were able to stay past our time.
The theme this year was WWE. He has gotten back into wrestling heavily since our recent WWE events. I reached out to my contacts & was able to get each child a Wrestlemania cap. The boyz were super thrilled with them. Each kid was rocking it proudly.
My cake was made by Jen from Get Your Cake Up. She’s been doing Andre’s cake for the past 2 years and she didn’t disappoint. I told her my idea & she made it work. The cake was delicious. I had none left over! She’s located in the Bronx if you ever need a cake.
My goodie bags were simple this year. I used red kraft bags from Oriental Trading. I created labels for each bag. I don’t like to give a lot of candy or junk toys. I just feel it’s a waste of my money. I did stuff some chocolate (everyone needs chocolate in their life!) chips, WWE tattoos & toys.
At the end of the day, my son was thrilled with his day which is all that matters. He had a great time seeing family and friends. He is truly loved & blessed to have them in his life. I am grateful that we were able to celebrate. Now to plan next years party!
