Forget Party Planning- Make Birthdays EASY this year with Netflix!

A few years back, we stopped throwing birthday parties.

They used to be my thing. I looked forward to, and also absolutely dreaded it every single year, because as proud of the result as I was, and as much as I loved watching the boys enjoy it (we did a two-for-one party with both of their birthdays being in September)–It was just so much work, and so incredibly stressful. I’d spend weeks planning, go totally all-out with themed decorations, foods, drinks, and activities, which meant days shopping– days and late nights trying to make it perfect for the kids–the ones who would actually show up. All that time, the effort, the money spent, all to create chaos in the house for a few hours of panicking you missed something, and worrying people would call the day off to say they couldn’t attend. It sounds like I’m being dramatic, but if you’ve ever thrown a party for a kid, you know this to at least be partially true.

And you’re not alone.

Did you know 71% of parents wish there was a better/easier way to celebrate their child’s birthday without all the added stress?


Instead, we started taking family trips-creating memories of DOING things in place of throwing parties.

NO ONE in this house misses parties.


Still, when the boys’ birthdays roll around, I always want to make at least a little bit of a stink about it, just on a far smaller (read: non-existent) budget. Netflix is making that SUPER easy for all of us with kids that love Netflix as much as we do!




It’s so easy. It’s called Netflix Birthdays on Demand- all ya gotta do is go to Netflix.com/Birthdays and choose from one of FIFTEEN Netflix originals with your kid’s fav characters (including DreamWorks All Hail King JulienBarbieBeat Bugs, DreamWorks Dinotrux, Las LeyendasLEGO Friends, LEGO NinjagoLuna PetuniaMiraculous: Tales of Ladybug and Cat NoirMy Little PonyPokemonProject Mc2Skylanders Academy, DreamWorks Trollhunters and Word Party.)
And that’s IT.

It will feel like a tailor made birthday celebration just for your little one, without the stress, streamers, and hair torn out.


And maybe have a little bit of cake, too..

Just remember- if no one’s around to see it, the only thing that matters is that it tastes good!
